Kenny Saint Best is armed to the teeth with her 10-year post graduate degree in Theology. As a singer who was ordained a minister at her church, New Anointing Revival Assembly, she has denied that her role will affect her career.
Speaking on her ordination last weekend, the singer said she has been pastoring for over a decade. She said that she has always wanted to be a minister of God and she attended the necessary institutions to attain that.
“My ordination and career cannot clash because I do gospel music. I am a minister of God through my music and that is what people know me for. Towards the end of last year, I had a worship concert and it was like a re-introduction of myself going back into the ministry. I have always been doing gospel music and sometimes, I do street gospel music, songs that people on the streets can relate to and listen to without going to church. My ordination does not disturb my career; the only thing is that I would be doing more of worship songs than street gospel music,” she said.
I have never done secular music, if you doubt me, go and listen to my songs. It has never happened. If you are referring to my song with Terry G, it was a song of testimonies. If you listen to my song, ‘Sugar Sugar,’ featuring MI, it was also a street gospel music. Even my song with the late Da Grin, ‘Turn me Around,’ it was a song of prayers and Da Grin’s verse on the song was filled with prayer points,” she said.
“When I was in the UK, I went to the school of ministry and when I got back to Nigeria, I attended the Redeemed Christian Church of God and went for a post graduate course in Theology in 1997. You cannot do all of these without having it in mind that you want to become a minister of God someday. After my course, I was posted to be an assistant pastor and I served in that capacity for about six months. I have been pastoring for over 20 years but it is not something I like to share with the public,” KSB said.
