Pastor Mrs.Christy Idahosa, Deputy General Overseer of Godfirst Ministries International aka Illumination Assembly and a multiple award-winning gospel singer, recently called on Nigerian female gospel musicians not to give up in their singing profession in spite of the harsh economic situation of the country, stressing that the gospel music industry must make waves than the secular music in the market.

While granting interview with some journalists at her palatial office last Sunday, Pastor Mrs. Christy Idahosa said, my son motivated me back into the gospel music industry. When I became 50years old, I thought, I cannot sing any longer, but my son told me there is need to put some effort in bringing my music passion back to life.

I have been singing since 1986 when I met my beloved husband, Bishop Isaac Idahosa, presiding Bishop of Godfirst Ministries International aka Illumination Assembly.

I’m from Taraba State in the Northern part of Nigeria and gospel music has been my passion over the years. I started singing professionally many years ago and I have some gospel music albums to the credit of God.

Pastor Christy Idahosa explained that it was not easy putting her gospel music album together but with the support of my husband, this ‘Greater than all’ was able to come out. To shoot each video on these songs cost over 1 million naira. I have five tracks, Beautiful, Best is yet to come, Future, Greater than all and Chindo mi.Greater than all is the hit track. Only Greater than all has been shot on video and others are on audio.4 other songs will be shot on video soon.

Speaking further, she said, her album launch was attended by few guests she invited. If it was a music concert, I can invite the whole world to see my music performance. No doubt, the gospel music is dying in Africa because the entertainment investors have not find interest in investing in the gospel industry than investing massively on the secular musicians.

“I will continue to sing more gospel songs now that my children are adults now”. My husband has been my great inspiration in this gospel world”.

It is sad that professional gospel musicians are poorly paid by churches but that cannot deter us from singing to God than singing secular songs. Some gospel musicians are overcharging but we must know that the gospel music is to worship God not man.

My advice to young female gospel musicians not to give up their talents in singing, God will surely bring their helpers to them when the time comes, she said.
