How are you today?
When I heard the news about Obiwon being a gospel artiste I was surprised. So, I decided to blog about it to tell my readers that did not know.
Obiora Obiwon R&B singer turned gospel artiste covering September edition of Vine Magazine (an entertainment and lifestyle magazine for young positive minds) says 'switching to gospel was not a business decision'.
Obiwon speaks about his conversion and terrifying salvation experience as well as his relationship with Tuface, Blackface, Flavour, Ill-Bliss and others which spans almost two decades.
Interviewed by Vine Magazine Editor, 'Seun Salami, Obiwon also speaks about the initial rejection and skepticism he had to endure from the 'gospel community' after he made the switch to gospel music and why he is not comfortable charging fees to minister. He also had some stern words for other gospel artistes who 'demand' payment to minister.
This edition also features Pastor J (Jimmy Odukoya), Nikki Laoye, PITA and more.
Vine Magazine which is now distributed free every month, is out this Sunday (August 25) and will be given out at major youth churches around the city of Lagos and environs as well as major gospel gigs going down throughout the month of September.
