Interestingly, she has the solid backing of her family in her music career.

According to her, “My mandate is to spread the Gospel from Jerusalem to Judea, to Samaria, and to the uttermost part of the world as commanded by Jesus. So I compose, write, and sing the word of God as inspired.

“God told me, ‘ I’m sending you to the nations to spread the Good News’ starting from Nigeria to the uttermost part of the world.

“The Gospel is yet to be preached through music in Nigeria. It’s more of receiving a blessing from God rather than the death and resurrection of Jesus, which is the good news.

“With my involvement, the nations will be bombarded with the salvation message that Jesus died and rose and gave us victory.

“God bless Kingdom Radio 94.9FM, Sweden, God bless Pastor Abika and the entire Kingdom Radio Family! Shalom!”

According to her, the Holy Spirit is her source of inspiration and He alone has been guiding her in her music career.

She sings more of Worship, Praise, and contemporary music. She explained that the reason is that contemporary songs give her the privilege to adore and exalt Him as much as she can express.

In her words, “I always get prayerful support from my family but my husband gives me support in all ramifications, and of which he has been there from the start till now.

“As I said earlier, the Holy Spirit is my Source of inspiration and most times inspiration for my songs comes when I’m pondering over a particular situation and God gives me the answer to the situation through songs which I write down immediately.

“My target is those who feel that all hope is lost, those who feel that the world is against them, those who feel that nothing good can come out of them, those who feel that they have committed a lot of sins, and to them it can’t be forgiven, those who are heartbroken and need a Divine touch. With the songs that the Holy Spirit has given to me, it’s always a message for a particular soul out there going through one or some of the things mentioned above.”

Speaking further about her impression of the music industry in Nigeria, she urged gospel artists to always seek inspiration from the Holy Spirit and not from the underworld, so that the blessings of God would be imparted in the lives of the masses.
