Kanye West : I am now a born-again Christian

Published

on

Kanye West shocked Hollywood when he donned a MAGA hat in support of President Trump but something he told a fellow rapper is surprising people once again: He’s now a born-again Christian.

Nicki Minaj, while hosting “Queen Radio” on Apple Music, said West told her he turned to God after being hospitalized and diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2016. She made the announcement during a discussion about faith in the entertainment industry with special guest Chance The Rapper, who recently went on a sabbatical to “learn the Word of God.”

“Sometimes in the music business, we think that other artists don’t believe in God or aren’t spiritual as we are… then when you find people, because I was just with Kanye, and he told me he’s a born-again Christian now,” the female rapper said.

West, who recently asked Trump to bail out A$AP Rocky in Sweden, has been hosting church services weekly, dubbed “Sunday Service,” inviting pastors like Rich Wilkerson, Jr., who married West and Kim Kardashian in 2014, to give a sermon. He’s also been collaborating with several artists to remix and sing worship songs.

Minaj said she could see the change in West during a recent interaction they had.

“Like, my first instinct was, ‘I’m so proud of you,’ because I could see there’s a peace that he has now that just surpasses everything,” she said. “And that’s what I find God gives you, and I love when I see men that are man enough to embrace God.”

Then Minaj took her listeners to church, recounting an experience she had with an atheist.

“To everybody listening, if you have a man that says he don’t believe in God. One time somebody told me this, that, ‘I don’t believe in God,’ and it scared the living hell out of me,” she said. “I ran like there was no tomorrow. So, I just want to say, because a man needs a strong woman in his life, like whether that woman is praying or meditating or just supporting you or giving you those talks, people don’t understand how far that goes for men.”

She added: “Cause men are dumb, Chance. Y’all know you are mad dumb.”

Chance responded by pointing out how his wife, Kirsten Corley, “saved his life” by abstaining from sex, something he touched on in his new album “The Big Day.”

Daddy Freeze Apologizes To Bishop Oyedepo For Insulting Him

Published

By

Popular OAP Daddy Freeze took to his Instagram to tender an apology to Bishop Oyedepo for insulting him in a video recorded about 2 years ago that surfaced online. This is after Ibiyeomie, Founder and General Overseer of Salvation Ministries, threatened to arrest him and also pastor Enenche described Daddy Freeze as a mad dog who is suffering from bipolar disease

He took to his Instagram and tendered apology in a video. Watch Below..

He Said

My attention has been drawn to a video I released circa two years, seven months ago while addressing some pertinent issues that arose back then. I apologise for the delivery of my message and for any insult to Bishop David Oyedepo in that video as I didn’t in any way intend to dishonour, disrespect or disregard the person of the bishop.

The perceived intention to the contrary is regretted. My methods of addressing doctrinal issues have long since devolved to a more scriptural and less confrontational approach. I was, and still, very passionate in my quest to address what I believe are unresolved doctrinal issues, however, from a more amiable perspective.”

My Music Is For Everyone, I Don’t Discriminate – El’ Grace

Published

on

Grace Oluwadiya (El Grace) grew up in Ekiti State, Nigeria. The musician attended Federal University of Technology (FUTA), Akure where she studied Architecture before moving to the US. Her passion for music has kept her on track, still having her sound recognised in Nigeria, having concerts and keeping up on her career as a nurse abroad. She speaks with FAVOUR BOLUWADE on her achievements, style and other issues.

How did you keep up being abroad and still able to resound your music in your motherland?

Through the grace of God, the internet and my promotion team, I have been able to make some impact.

What influenced your diversion to gospel music?

I grew up in the church and I have always been into gospel music. However, my background was more of classical music and hymns.

Do you think it is easier to be recognised when your music can be played to any audience? 

I think it depends on the purpose of your music and the message you want to pass across and to whom the message belongs. Some people write inspirational songs that carry good message but not necessarily to the church. Even though I am a music minister, my music is not just for the church, it’s for the whole world. However, my music reflects my God and who He is, which is my message to the world. I think when a song has a good melody, then a good message it appeals to everyone regardless.

Challenges so far? 

First, it was hard to get anyone that would believe in me, to produce my songs, but I think that’s because God wanted me to work with the right person. Also, I have to work harder being outside the country, yet making my music known on the side of the world.

How did you come about your stage name?

El’ Grace means God’s Grace, but I removed the S so people don’t call me Els grace and sound like Hell’s grace. My first name is Grace, hence, God’s Grace.

You had a concert in Nigeria last year; did COVID-19 stop this year?

Yes, I had a live recording concert last year September 2019 theme (Abundant Praise) featuring renowned saxophonist Beejay Sax, Efe Nathan, Yetunde Are, Bukola Bekes, Segun Atoyebi, Kunle Adeola, Tosin Alao and some other great musicians. This year I wanted to do another, but with the pandemic, I had to let it go and focus on other projects.

What’s your next collaboration game? 

Of course in the nearest future, I will have. I don’t know who yet.

Who are your mentors? 

I have people I watch and learn from, like Tasha Cobbs, Nathaniel Bassey, Victoria Orenze.

Do you feel fulfilled with what you do musically?

Of course, I am, but I am a perfectionist, and my own number one critic, I strive to be better each day.

What genres of music have you explored so far; what is your peculiar sound?

Wow, my album has 12 songs, where 11 are totally different. I have explored as many genres as possible. I have contemporary Christian Music, soft rock Ballard, slow high life and so on.

Would you, now that you do gospel, team up with a secular singer like others do?

We are all created by God, I do not discriminate. As long as the song is not in anyway mocking God, and as long as it does not promote evil.

What notions are wrong about Gospel music and you wish could be changed?

Some people believe all gospel artistes sing for money, or they are just jobless people that are singing for money or fame. Not at all, I work. I am a Nurse and it’s a ministry and my singing is one other that God gave me.

How do you juggle with music?

By God’s grace. I do juggle both. I prioritise and take one thing at a time.

What’s your new single about?

It is a song of testimony; it’s about God’s greatness and His power to save and deliver; Agbanilagbatan as the Yorubas would call Him. Even with the Coronavirus situation, I had to work with people with Corona pandemic. God was totally faithful hence the reason for my song.

Your background? 

In Nigeria, I studied Architecture and did work as an architect for some time before I traveled to the United States with my family. I started singing in church as a little girl and I played the violin when I was 2 years old. Music has always been a part of me. However, I started writing my songs in 2013 and I started recording professionally in 2017. My first song titled ‘You are beautiful’ is still available on all digital platforms.

As Long As The Song Doesn’t Mock God And Doesn’t Promote Evil, I Can Team Up With A Secular Singer – El Grace
