Music star, Kenny Saint Best who was recently ordained as a Pastor at Anselm Madubuko's New Anointing Revival Assembly has now talked about her new title in this punch newspaper interview!
“My ordination and career cannot clash because I do gospel music. I am a minister of God through my music and that is what people know me for. Towards the end of last year, I had a worship concert and it was like a re-introduction of myself going back into the ministry.
I have always been doing gospel music and sometimes, I do street gospel music, songs that people on the streets can relate to and listen to without going to church. My ordination does not disturb my career; the only thing is that I would be doing more of worship songs than street gospel music,” she said.
Even though she is one of the very few gospel artistes that feature secular artistes in Nigeria, KSB said that would never turn her to become a secular artiste.
“I have never done secular music, if you doubt me, go and listen to my songs. It has never happened. If you are referring to my song with Terry G, it was a song of testimonies. If you listen to my song, ‘Sugar Sugar,’ featuring MI, it was also a street gospel music. Even my song with the late Da Grin, ‘Turn me Around,’ it was a song of prayers and Da Grin’s verse on the song was filled with prayer points,”
The singer who has been pastoring for over a decade opened up that she has always wanted to be a minister of God and she attended the necessary institutions to attain that.
“When I was in the UK, I went to the school of ministry and when I got back to Nigeria, I attended the Redeemed Christian Church of God and went for a post graduate course in Theology in 1997. You cannot do all of these without having it in mind that you want to become a minister of God someday. After my course, I was posted to be an assistant pastor and I served in that capacity for about six months. I have been pastoring for over 20 years but it is not something I like to share with the public,” KSB said.
