Meanwhile: Well-known Nigerian musician and entertainer, Kingsley Chinweike Okonkwo, widely known as Kcee has explained why he switched from secular to gospel music.
The multiple award winning singer and ‘Limpopo’ hit-maker disclosed this in series of post via his official and verified Instagram account (Insta-story). According to the 5 Star Music prodigy, the switch was deliberate.
Kcee stated that, he deliberately switched to avoid stagnancy, after being consistent over two decades in the music industry. In his own words; “The switch was deliberate and intentional. I’ve been doing this for twenty-three years so, you can’t be stagnant. So sometimes for me, I have to move it around, switch it around. And that was one of those things I did. And it clicked, it worked for me somehow”.
Speaking about the inspiration on his new found sound, he said, “For those that know about my career, it started from the church. I grew up in a home where my father was the DJ, selling some of those old records. So, I’ve always had that somewhere behind me to revamp some of those old songs. So, when the idea came, I tried it and some people were like, ‘No, it’s not going to work. Don’t release it. Some people were like ‘just try it and at the end of the day, it worked”, he added.
