that I just wanted to use my talent for God. From the outset, I was
brought up in a Christian home and I have always believed in the things
of God. I just want to use my talent as a payback to God for all that He
has done for me; He has been faithful in every area of my life.
worked with the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association. But I
realised that family is more important to me and the work didn’t allow
me to have time for my family and for things of God. Now, it is just
music that I am into.
choruses were at some point, what some artistes recorded as songs. The
thing is that every gospel chorus would eventually turn out to become a
chorus in church. It is just that these days, because of media and
social media, we are now able to put a face to some of the songs we
listen to. Now, we can say this song belongs to this or that artiste.
It has greatly transformed the way people used to see gospel music.
music. I have had my fair share of challenges in life and at every
point, God has seen me through. I can’t trade that for anything. When I
started my career, I wasn’t like this. I started as just a woman who was
seeking the face of God. But I can tell you now that the grace of God
has been sufficient. I don’t have to look for things before I get them.
anybody to serve God in spirit and in truth. What you will enjoy will
be greater than anything you can imagine. I don’t have any regret
leaving any corporate organisation and coming to work for God.
don’t expose my body. Exposing your body may mean another thing to
people. But if you check all my pictures online, I am usually well
covered. If I am not going to church, I don’t have any business covering
my hair. I don’t think any normal Christian should tie scarf every day
of her life. I don’t know if by some people’s definition, that is how
to be a Christian. I like to make myself beautiful because my God is
beautiful. I want people to see me and also want to serve God. I want
them to look at me and know that it is better to serve God than mammon.
Gone are the days when you keep your hair untidy and some people would
just look at you and say, ‘yes, that is how they look’. Everything God
has created is beautiful. We cannot turn the creativity of God into an
ugly thing. I accept that I am beautiful and I have to maintain the
beauty in me. I want to look good for God’s sake, for my husband and for
my children. I want people to be proud of me as a Christian.
you see me wearing pants, that is because it was convenient for me to
wear such. I have never worn a see-through cloth with ordinary panties
and bra and somebody would walk up to me to ask me what I am wearing.
God will not even be happy with me wearing such. No matter what you do,
you cannot satisfy every man. I don’t have to wait for anybody to come
to my house to see that I am a child of God. From my looks, you should
know that I am a child of God and I do His ways. But I am not a fanatic.
Some people might think that as a Christian, you should tie your hair
every day of the week. I don’t see how that will work if you are a
banker and you will now have to wear your church hat to work. I don’t
wear blue or red hair, I don’t dress like a pop star, so nobody will
come to me and ask me if I am sure I am a Christian.
revealing clothes when I am not a mad person. Why would I just wear
clothes that would show my undergarments and be walking on the streets
when I am not mad? It doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that I
am a Christian. I know people should do whatever they like but in that
process, also consider that there is somebody watching them. Oh yes He
created us naked and we would go back naked. But He didn’t say that we
should be walking about naked.
years now and that means they are men now. But growing up, I did what
they did. I played football with them. I used to have more trousers than
skirts. In fact, I was a typical tomboy.
wasn’t so used to making my hair. It was even during my university days
that I realised I was a lady and as such; I needed to look like one. So
I started making my hair. But after a week, I would seriously want to
remove the hair. Now, I do more of wigs. Anytime I am not in the
country, I shop for more wigs than any other thing. Even my husband buys
wigs for me. If you catch me at home, trust me, you would see me in my
natural hair. But when I am going out, I wear wigs. If I am carrying
braids, I might endure and wear the braids for three weeks.
when I have to be casual. But when I am going to church, I wear
dresses. In fact, for church, I wear flowing gown. I don’t wear skirts.
Because I played football a lot when I was growing up, I think I
developed bow legs. So I don’t wear skirt except if the skirt is very
long. Long dresses suit me more than wearing short stuff. I am very
small in stature so when I am going out, I like to dress like a woman
that I am.
daughter is almost as tall as I am. People still think she is my sister.
In my family, we are all tall. I am the shortest. I wish I was just
shoes. Even when I am pregnant, I still wear high-heeled shoes. I don’t
like being fat, I would rather be slim as I am. But I would have wanted
to be taller.
carpet events. However, because I know if I get to the altar and start
singing, I would begin to sweat and then all the make-up will run and
you would not even like the picture that would come out. And because of
that, I don’t use professional make-up artistes. I just use my powder,
touch my brows and maybe use a lip gloss or lipstick. I usually do light
make-up. But if I have a video shoot, I get the services of a make-up
artiste because I know the picture would go viral and people would want
to see me looking very good.
wear, he tells me ‘Baby, I love this’. He doesn’t mind if it is short
or long as far as I am not exposing my body. I can never expose my body.
If I do, then it is a mistake. There was a time I bought one chiffon
gown. Gone are the days when ladies wear underskirt; you either wear
slip and tights now instead of underskirt. So I wore the tight under the
chiffon dress. I walked past a glass door and I noticed that the dress
was transparent. It wasn’t as if anybody could see my body but I could
see the shadows of my legs and I was uncomfortable. I said to myself
that I should have worn a very long slip. I just quickly entered a
boutique and I bought a slip and wore underneath. I am so careful of the
material I buy.
