247ariya

My songs  are by inspiration.
Although most times the things happening around could easily trigger your writing and your inspiration. More also, I work with a writer cos we have a songwriter in Big and Mega, which has made my music life very easy for me

Esther E.Q
Hmmmm many things o
247ariya
Let have them please!
Esther E.Q
But what’s important is that God has always been surprising me
Well. Becoming a singer to be interviewed like this was one of the things at one time I think it is possible only on TV or happens to some kind of special people but one way or other God steps in and has helped me.

247ariya

I believe in our Nigeria gospel singers and everyone of them are doing very well.
I think we don’t aim to be like the secular artiste
247ariya
Tell us some measures you think should be taken to better the gospel scene!
Esther E.Q
Bible made us to know that if we seek first the kingdom of God here on earth, every other things would be added on to us

Esther E.Q
Please never give up on God, don’t allow anyone to discourage you. Hold tight on the things you believe in and follow your dreams.
I pray God grants us all the desire of our heart. His  desire is for  us (youth)  to use our strength to serve him when our power is very much there.
But this days we are distracted by money and flashy things,
So if you are there reading this interview
Please do not trade God for anything that u can only see today and would perish tomorrow.
