Fair skinned Peace Osirim is the gospel artiste to watch out for in the gospel traditional music. She is set to launch her album entitled, Testify which promises to 2016 collections of hit.

ENCOMIUM Weekly had a chat with her on how it all began and where she is headed…

 

How did the journey into music start?

I never knew I would be a singer. I started when I was quite young. We would discuss an issue and I would turn it into a song. My grandma was a singer. I can remember that she had several albums she released before passing on. Officially, I started singing four years ago.

What type of music do you do?

I do gospel music. I call myself a gospel traditional singer.

How will you describe your journey so far as an artiste?

It has been wonderful. I know life has its ups and down, so also is music. I thank God for everything all the same. I am not here because of the money, I just want people to hear my song and be blessed.

You are about releasing an album, can you tell us about it?

My second album is entitled, Testify. I wrote Nga Ngan on it. It means making shakara. I want to thank God for all He has done. I have Ebube, Praise Jehovah, Holyspirit and a whole lot of other song in it. I sang a praise song in Urhobo.

Who are the artistes you would like to feature?

Maybe Tope Alabi. I just love her and I wouldn’t mind having her in one of my songs. I also love Chioma Jesus. They are both talented gospel acts I admire a lot.

How do you draw inspiration for your songs?

I draw inspiration from everywhere. After I dropped my first album, I took my mind off music but people started challenging me to release another album. I had no song for a new album then, but I prayed to God and told Him if He really wanted me to continue singing, He should give me inspiration. That was how it started flowing.  Apart from that experience, I draw inspiration from life experience, things around me.

Tell us about your first album?

Let Your Kingdom Reign was the title. It was released a couple of months back but the second album would be in the market in November by the grace of God. The album is marketed by Kevin Richman.
