Gospel Music Unfold

Category Archives: Article


Spaghetti Records released the compilation video titled “PowerFlow Videos” for Gospel music minister Monique in July. The video goes beyond putting together the works of the wave making Gospel music artiste but also shows her personality in a dynamic way.

They say a picture can tell a thousand words, how many do you, then think we can learn from a motion picture where the object of interest speaks at varying degrees about her ministry and personality?

We met forehand the professional singer and the anointed minister. We are giving a first seat view into how the 2 elements come together to create excellence in her ministry. Monique speaks on how this uniqueness makes her work a tool for evangelism creating a platform for the Holy Spirit to manifest.

Monique gets more personal as she takes us back to her debut into the music ministry. The hit song “Oba Gbogbo Aiye” is a testimony of the saving grace of God but the amazing thing is the fact that the whole world is singing this testimony with Monique, thereby birthing even a greater testimony. Monique is simply grateful that she is able to put the praise of God on the lips of people all around the world.

As a family oriented person, Monique gives praises to God for the lives around her. She speaks explicitly about the certain members of her family of whom she is grateful to God for their presence in her life, and how their influence has impressed on her qualities.

Due to the multi faceted persona of this music diva, it’s easy to create a frame for her in one’s mind. Monique also set this straight without making a frantic effort to justify herself. She opened up the scope that makes up Monique and leaves the audience with the privilege of making conclusion based on this scope.

“It is very easy to watch my videos and conclude on who I am, it is also very easy to read about me in some certain places and conclude on who I am… but I am more than [what you see on] the surface” – Monique.

Victories are certainly motivation that makes us believe God for greater testimonies. The same is true for the Gospel music diva. Being a wife, a mother, a child and a student can definitely weigh on a ministry such as that of a singer but Monique tells us the secret behind her balance – but you will have to watch the video to find out.

The video is definitely an expository into the ministry and personality of Monique, which cannot be exhausted in a single write-up. It is not everyday we get to meet a music minister face-to-face and this compilation provides us with such opportunity, one you will like to keep around you for a long time!

Christian Hip Hop artiste Same OG has kept mum about the focus of her August 10 release, nevertheless, there has been a lot of buzz about the artiste in the past days and we took some time to put the spotlight on Same OG.

After the video for her single “I Ball”, not much has been heard from her, as per music, but the impact of “I Ball” was big enough to sustain her, till the big announcement of the yet-to-be-known release.

Same OG is synonymous with excellence, this can be seen in her production, her brand and her mode of delivery. From the get-go, she has set herself aside for greatness. As her sound blares through the airwaves, it is impossible she bypasses you unnoticed.

It wasn’t all blue skies and sunshine for the baller however. Same OG was lifted from the dunghill, so she can lift others. She has known some grey days coming up. She chronicles her journey on her official website grafting her pain and passion vividly. You would grasp her persona and purpose before the vocabulary is conjured in your mind.


Losing her dad to cancer, and her mom, in a short space was a blow no one can be well prepared for. Kicked to the streets and separated from the rest of her family by circumstance, Same OG tried hard to grope out of the dark, buffeted by hunger and suicidal thoughts, she stuck to her passion and it eventually made a way.

Being a scriptwriter and content officer for the online platforms of a firm in Lagos was a breath of fresh air. With the rest of her family attended, she scuttled her way back to her first love – music.

While speaking with SelahAfrik‘s Alex Amos, she attested that music was one of the reasons she was able to pull through the periods of ordeal.

“I had to even do corporate begging”, she chuckled ruefully. “Through those times, music was what kept me going.”

Aside the critically acclaimed single “I Ball”, other songs by Same OG includes, “Give it All”, featuring New-School rapper Limoblaze“Carry Me Dey Go” and “I Believe”, featuring Soul. The single “I Ball” has a beautiful lyrics video and official video complimenting the wave making release.

Expect Same OG’s newest release August 10, 2017.



Do not strut; give a doubt and patiently go thro’ this deep poem from Moses. Here, the meaning of his poem is ironical to its title. Do not be confused. Read through:
Alive and young,

Old and dead


Again, alive and ever young,

Not growing old


We live, one, ten, hundred

We grow old


Young, we die young

Happily young


We die at two

Age, we do not by years

Age, we do by abilities, inabilities


We were two years, able

We are two years, unable


We ran on two

We shiveringly walk on three

We die at two

Death at two


​Thoughts of a great Evangelical.
“Once we begin to reckon (appropriate) identification truths, some of us make the mistake of trying to straighten out our pastor and the church along those lines. But our testimony must first be observed by others and then heard. 
The Spirit will have us prayerfully watch for the hungry heart, feeding the few in preference to offending the many. 
Furthermore, those around us have a right to observe over a period of time whether or not our witness and our walk are valid”
1 Timothy 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

1 Timothy 4:15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.


Again!  Moses presents you with a narrative poem that reiterates the place of integrity in various aspects. He indirectly heralds our core values as Africans by painting an imagery of a ‘father-son’ kinda interaction that happens from generations to another. Here: 

Those days

Times when every truth sold

When honesty was truly the best policy

Times our philadelphia was high

Now, all is not

For all happened

When i was your age


Those evenings we sat

At granny’s feet we listened

Stories of our heritage

We wanted to know who we really are

Now, all is not

All happened

But when i was your age


Times, seasons

Every penny, with contentment spent

Worth our sweat

Not inferior, not superior, every fellow

Nobody was a nobody

Not the same today

Those happened

But when i was your age


All days gone

Betrothed by parents, we grew

Friends without had we

valued priceless and high

Virginity

Now different

As all happened

When i was your age


Daddy’s words

Now, what life was

He was my age

Great those times

I smelt, i imagined

Dad was my age, older

Tomorrow, i will tell Little

What life is

When i become dad’s age today.



Moses in “What if” expresses his hope of an unadulterated and all-encompassing relationship. Assumption is the palate with which the perfect picture is painted in this piece. Here:

               WHAT IF… 

What if you are mine?

Friend, what if your soul be

Knitted to mine? 


Shall we be absent?

We hunger for love.

Shall we not be alive to the heart?


We feel

What nature gives;

We always want; positive, negative.

Caged. Nature bars us.


My heart, my pocket, my time

Yours.

Our turn. Now, our time.


We are here

You are there

We are together.


We love you

What if you are mine?

What if these are true?

What if…?



Here is Misturat in an explicit stanza of 15lines. She calls it “Fate”. Enjoy!
