Kalusian: Collaboration is about shared Interest, and it’s good to collaborate . However I wouldn’t collaborate with a “secular” artiste except I receive a special instruction from the Holy Spirit to. I’ve learnt it is critical to understand the assignment each of us have , whilst to some God would want them collaborate secularly to reach out to another He wouldn’t but for a greater task.
Noble C. Ozogbuda: I love your answer, because as a music artiste, you must know that, your music or songs to the world is a message, many gospel musicians has gone to the way side today… looking at the fame of these world… we have to be inspired by the Holy Ghost to do so…

Morocco (North and central Africa), English, Twi of Ghana , Wallof of Gambia and Igbo of Nigeria (West Africa) in one medley, raising the praise to our God with one heart singing JEHOVAH YOU ARE MOST HIGH!
