Nigerian Gospel Singer Sinach Receives Certificate of Recognition from the US Congress



Nigerian gospel singer Sinach, who currently won Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) Song of The Year for her single “Way Maker,” has been honoured by Texas’ 18th Congressional District with a certificate of recognition.

Sinach shared the good news on her Instagram page, she wrote:

The Eighteenth Congressional District of Texas has conferred a certificate of recognition on Nigeria’s Osinachi Joseph Egbu popularly known as Sinach.

Sheila Jackson Lee, a US senator representing the Texas constituency who penned the recognition letter said it was in view of the artist’s using her music to propagate the gospel around the world and for conducting a successful concert in Houston, Texas over the weekend.

“They have the freedom, through song, to discover their destiny and maximize their hidden potential through communion with the one true God. Indeed, your tireless efforts are completely deserving of the respect, administration, and commendation of the United States Congress,” Jackson Vee said.

The concert tagged ‘Sinach: Night of Worship Houston Texas’ featured international gospel artists such as Micah Stamply, Dee Jones, Da’dra Greathouse, and Todd Dulaney.

The one-night event drew crowds from different parts of the United States. According to eyewitnesses, the main hall as well as an overflow venue was packed out with worshippers and fans of the artist.

Sinach is currently the winner of the Broadcast Music, Inc., (BMI) Song of the Year award for her song Way Maker. It is the first by a gospel artist from Nigeria. She is also the winner of the Dove Music Song of the Year Award 2020 for the same song.

“Music is one of the most important and powerful things in life. It brings people together and allows us to experience the same emotions. People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit. No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics, or the expression of our love and our faith, music proves; we are all human beings. Thank you for spreading this universal language throughout the world,” said Jackson Vee.

Congratulations Sinach!

On releasing an album soon

Nah, they need to miss me a bit. ‘I’ll keep it real with you, I did want to drop an album, was working, and as always the music was coming, but I just thought: Why am I even doing this and what am I trying to prove? So, I’m chilling.

On his charity and setting up funds for the EndSARS victims

It was a very weird time. I started getting phone calls: People wanna know why you’re not involved. Why are you not saying anything? But, as soon as I heard something I jumped into action. That’s who I am. I’ve been through so much at the hands of people that none of this is a surprise to me. You have to understand this: I realised, very early on, that if you’re fighting for someone then use only one hand. One to fight and the other to defend yourself from the person you’re fighting for!

Ayra Starr Is The Cover Girl For Accelerate TV




Ayra Starr is the cover girl for Accelerate TV’s “The Cover” October issue and she’s gracing it with a fashion statement.

The Mavin signee discusses with the magazine on her music career, future plans and more.

Describing Ayra Starr, here’s what Accelerate TV has to say:

The vibe you get from Ayra Starr’s music is the same vibe you get from her in person. Ayra Starr is clear on what she wants, what she likes, and who she is-all of which are apparent in her lyrics. Conversations behind the scenes with Ayra, along with quiet observations of the STARR in her natural element, show a young woman who is as in touch with herself, as she is with her audience. Ayra is mindful with her words and thinks before she speaks, which is also probably the reason we’ve gotten such good music.

Read excerpts below:

On handling negative comments:

I do not register information that is not my business. I don’t know any other way to answer or explain what I mean. I simply do
not dwell on negativity. It requires time and energy that can be channelled towards more useful things. Alternatively, I think people should focus on more important and meaningful things when they aren’t listening to my music. I’m a proud feminist, I believe in one love and I’m a fashion killer of course!

On how she manages her mental health and what keeps her balanced and clear-minded:

Whenever I start to feel overwhelmed or stressed, I just take a break. I withdraw from the noise and all the distractions and spend
time on myself. I do the things that make me feel good or just calm me down…I watch TV, I eat and I sleep.

On harnessing her individuality:

I read books about spirituality and try to make sure that I am always learning. That’s the way to keep expanding your mind and
adding depth to your thoughts. I also learn a lot through music and have a genuine desire to be a better person and to master my craft. But just as importantly, my mom taught me how to be my own person.
