Any regrets about your music so far?
JUDIIKAY: I used to..
But you see,I began to understand it is all a process.. And our walk is progressive… We get better..so no regrets at all!
Is there anything you wish you did earlier?
JUDIIKAY: To be honest, nothing at all.
Correspondent: What would you count as your highest achievement in ministry?
JUDIIKAY: That people can listen to my songs and experience genuinely for themselves, the person of Jesus
That’s the Spirit Girl
Your song “More than gold” is everywhere on the airwaves, with over 40k downloads on our platform and 15k views on our youtube Channel and we are expecting so much from the song this year. How do you feel about that? What are we to look up to soonest?
JUDIIKAY: I’m elated with what Jesus is doing through the song to be honest… And I’ve been deeply humbled by the testimonies.
Video drops in a bit..we’d let you in on the next as they unfold
Correspondent: So she’s keeping us in Suspense 😭
Butterflies already growing in my stomach
Correspondent: What’s your take on the phrase “gospel artiste“?
Like Some people would say they are Inspirational Singers, Some will say they are worshippers, Some will say they are Ministers
What’s your take on all this?
I think they are cheap distractions .. Imagine soldiers on the field arguing about if they should be called fighters or warriors or troubleshooter and all of that.. Cheap distraction!
As believers we are all worshippers and ministers..whether thou art a banker, singer, lawyer etc; the former
because worship is our YES and obedience to our Father. ..and the latter because 2 Corinthians 5:19-20 teaches us that we all as believers have now become ambassadors of *the* reconciliation work of Christ,having received the life of Christ ..
Having sorted that out,as far as we are clear on our identity in Christ,purpose here on earth which is still Christ, and we walk in alignment with the will of the Father daily. We go dey alright.
Correspondent:: Wow this is an Eye opener
Mehn This is turning to a full sermon
Anyways thanks for that, we hope our readers and those who are distracted by this trivial issues get corrected.
JUDIIKAY: I apologize for the epistle
Correspondent: Ahh keep it coming ma,
What do you think a gospel artiste should focus more on, rehearsal or prayer?
JUDIIKAY: Prayer and then rehearsals ;
In the place of prayer is where we can be aligned to His will. We cannot afford to joke with that relationship. It is the engine room of our purpose.
Rehearsals are also very important. Skill is key.
We can’t pray and go present what is not fit for a king; excellence..
Also you can’t rehearse all the syncopations and arrangement.. Without the Holy Ghost it would be noise.
The place of prayer is key.. The place of rehearsals shouldn’t be swept under the carpet.
Correspondent: What a balance
Now Something out of the box, Errrnnm… a bit personal thoughAre you married? Single or engaged?
Do you know this song?
‘I’m married to Jesus… ‘ just be singing it till you reach the next question
Correspondent: This is hilarious and a Smart One.
Since Mama feels she’ll make us sing “I’m Married to Jesus”, We’re Singing it ooo.
So, On a closing Note,
What do you have to say to those who love your music and look up to you?
JUDIIKAY: I’m saying thank you to everyone. There’s progress in this faith. Stay steadfast. I really do love you.
Correspondent: Any Message to Fellow Gospel Music Ministers?
JUDIIKAY: More than anything, let’s walk in agape.. Let’s walk with the Holy Ghost.. We refuse the pride of knowledge that raises dust and blinds the weak. We refuse envy, competition and and bitterness.. We walk in agape.. Doing the Father’s will together. Sharing burdens, Sharing in our joy,till the earth is filled with the knowledge of Jesus.
Correspondent: Awesome, this is thought provoking. Nice one Ma.
