This picture touched me deeply.
I remember that shirt. Bought it okrika. That is, second hand. We use to call it bend down/select. Yaba Market those days 🙂 Ministering as a guest at a church , The New Testament Assembly Alagomeji, Yaba Lagos. Was taken there by the esteemed Minister Paul Tao @taoelshaddai one of the very few who discovered the diamond in the rough and encouraged me.
This God has kept me all these years. Even when I knew very little of Him. And still learning of Him.
I remember being offered a contract to take Jesus out of a song in 2008, It was to be a foreign deal. But He gave me strength to turn it down. Saying I’d rather go hungry than take HIM out.
He is my LIFE. And by His Grace, I make a vow to serve non other, blow for non other, no matter the amount of money involved, until that final day, In Jesus’ name.
So when music ministers come for counseling and say they are tired, things are not working out after 1,2,3,4, 5 years and they want to quit,…..I just smile…🙂. I hope this picture encourages you all.
GOD IS GOOD. & GOD IS FAITHFUL.

The LORD is GOD! It’s all about JESUS. @nathanielblow, how time keeps flying… What GOD put in you was glaring to me, in that your teenage years. The LORD positioned me to showcase His masterpiece, I just obeyed His commands. It proved to be right and the acronym :”Virtuoso” still stands. Hello folks there is this thing young Nathaniel Bassey was doing with the Trumpet which he has stopped doing now perhaps because he sings more nowadays… It is great to hear him “sluring” with the Trumpet… Something very rare to hear from trumpeters… 🎺👍 You see, in that time, he was not singing at all but only blowing… You bet I shall give anything to hear him “slur” again… Thank you LORD JESUS for answering all our prayers for your son Nathaniel Bassey. Please BABA, uphold him to the very end, giving him many souls to win for you that he may receive his many-precious stones-stud crowns in your kingdom. This do in the Precious Name of JESUS CHRIST! Halleluyaaaah!!! Amen. Congratulations! Son. Blow on and on until heaven… Shalom all.
