Cutesagay sharing some insight to the life altering single said –
”So, I was invited to come lead the people of God in worship on this beautiful Saturday morning at Temple of Praise, I decided I was going to stay over at my manager’s place a night before.
A night before the meeting, I couldn’t sleep because I was so full and I desired to sing to God a new and beautiful sound, something no one’s ever done before.
I was so restless because I needed to fill that desire to lift up a new sound, and suddenly [like Minister Nathaniel Bassey would say] God did it just like that, boom! This sweet, soul stirring sound came alive from within me.
Long story short, we stayed on that song during the meeting the next day for so long that the whole room was so lit up and the people worshiped God beyond what I desired or pictured in my heart.
Fast forward a few days later, the maestro – Wilson Joel came on board as recommended by my manager, interpreted the song beyond the heavens, and the rest is history!
My people, God is so real. If you seek or desire Him or any thing from Him with a sincere heart, you’ll find him…
This is my story, this is my song. – My Yahweh.”

This episode of Hanging Out with SelahTV was shot at Wilson Joel formal studio location, he recently moved into an even more fancier location but what has not changed however is the meal and the man serving it! We mean both in the kitchen and studio!!
