He said, ‘Christians are very difficult to convince, and I don’t mean that in a bad way. I really don’t blame anybody because I think it takes a while to get into the role of being a minister of music in gospel.’ Then he was able to bring out two albums and he was fully welcomed.
He added, ‘I even had an occasion where the youth of a particular church invited me to come and minister at a church and when the pastor heard, he said “On my altar? Obiwon? Never!” These were some of the early challenges until I started getting accepted.’
