God loves worship. The Bible says ‘God inhabits the praises of his people.’ There are many places in the Bible where His people lifted up the banner when they were in a tight corner and He showed up for them.
If you are a good student of the Bible, you would be familiar with king Jehoshaphat’s story In 2 Chronicles 20 when the enemies surrounded the land of Israel. They raised an altar of worship unto God and He fought for them.
However, songs carry spirits, they take you back to where they came from. As a Christian, you wouldn’t want to sing strange songs in the Lord’s land.
You can’t use any kind of song to worship God. Before you argue if God accepts every offering of worship, read Cain’s story. This is not to say other songs are bad. But if you want to worship God, there are certain types of songs required to worship Him.
After you have had an amazing moment in the presence of God, here are some songs we believe you can listen to in order to sustain the presence of God throughout the week.
Pastor Nathaniel Bassey popularly called Minister Bassey is a songwriter and a worship leader. Earlier this year, He held the #hallelujahchallenge on Instagram, where he worshipped God between 12:00 am to 1:00 am, and in less than one month, he had over 600, 000 views.
He has many songs to his credit, but songs like ‘Imela’, ‘Book of Life’, ‘Olowogbogboro’, and ‘Onise Iyanu’ stood out among others. He loves to blow the trumpet and he is privileged to be one of the gospel artists who has sang at The Experience, Nigeria’s largest gospel concert.
This song was released on 30th December 2015, by Nigerian songwriter and senior worship leader at Loveworld, Osinachi Joseph, popularly known as Sinach. Waymaker’s music video is the first Nigerian gospel song to reach 100 million views on Youtube.
The song has been a blessing to people within and outside the country. In October 2019, Sinach was invited by Pastor Joel Osteen to perform the song live in Lakewood Church Houston, Texas.
Last May, with the song, Waymaker, Sinach became the first African Artist to top the Billboard Christian Songwriters chart.
Ka Anyi Bulie
Many wouldn’t have expected that such a thing would happen, but it did. A foreign gospel artist was featured by a Nigerian musician and even sang in one of our local dialects.
Many were marveled by the extraordinary brilliance displayed by Don Moen in delivering the song in the Igbo language. Though the duo has released other songs, Ka Anyi Bulie stands out because it is exceptional.
Frank Edwards is a keyboardist, a producer, and a member of the Presidential band of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome in Christ Embassy Church.
Mercy Chinwo is a gospel musician and a songwriter. She won the Nigerian Idol Season 2 in 2012 and was signed to Eezee Conceptz in 2017. She has won many awards to show for her creativity. One of them is the Africa Gospel Female Artist of the Year at the Africa Gospel Award Festival 2019.
She has many hit songs like Excess Love. Obinasom was released in 2020 and has been making waves too.
Logan ti o de ft T Y Bello
Known for praising God in Yoruba and as the pacesetter of soundtracks in Yoruba movies, Tope Alabi’s music career has been on an upward journey since releasing ‘Ore ti o Common’ in 2001.
Singing in Yoruba has not in any way limited her influence and the spread of her songs. She has been able to take the impact of her songs beyond the sphere of this country.
She released this song last year with TY Bello, in the Album ‘Spirit of Light’. It was a blessing to many people. If you haven’t listened to it, you should do that today. Tope Alabi is also one of the few Nigerian musicians who has performed at the Experience.
