Today, Mrs Okonkwo is a youth class teacher, evangelist, gospel singer and woman leader at St. Paul Anglican Church Adeoye, Mushin, Lagos West Diocese. Precisely on June 27, she will be launching her first gospel album titled “You Are Worthy” at the church premise.
Speaking to The Guardian Mrs Okonkwo said the music is all about what God has done, still doing and will do in future. On what motivated her, she said that it is the love and mercy of God.
“I am familiar with singing especially gospel music. For almost 23 years now, I have putting a lot in singing and church engagements. I have the talent and flair to serve my God through singing, preaching and doing His word. I have the calling and I am fulfilling it by coming up with an album in His Name.
