Anthony Uzoma still thrives as a special talent despite the abundance of outstanding musicians who make up the Christian Gospel music landscape. The singer’s tunes have always had a catchy beat, even on his recently released gospel pop album, Jesu Republic.
“I made this record intentionally. I wanted to identify with the street and take the gospel of Christ to them. As we know that Jesus came not for the saints, but the people on the street,” he tells Weekend-Beats on the inspiration behind Jesu Republic.
The Delta-born singer also said, “music has always been a part of him from the early days where he was singing with his elder brothers who are also in the music business.”
The celebrated singer and head of the Jesu Republic movement spoke about his experience as a gospel performer, saying
“Life as a gospel artist has been a wonderful journey.
One thing that’s very important is to set your mind at what you want to do first as an individual, because a lot of discouraging words definitely show, and these we get every time. Because I sing spiritual songs, some radio producers might not want to air your songs, the support might not be there to push your songs, but God has been faithful regardless.”
