Soul E who now lives in Lesotho, told Punch’s correspondent that he found a better place in that country, a better life than what he was used to in Nigeria and had no regret whatsoever.
“God has blessed me abundantly. I have no reason to complain. God exposed me to people who I never believed I could meet. Working for God opens doors for you. In my church in Lesotho, there are Nigerians, Zimbabweans and South Africans. When God calls a man, he fights his battles and He convinces everyone to follow you. We will be two years-old this month as a ministry. We have almost 300 members. The name of the church is The Evidence Church,” he said.
The singer who further stated that being a Pastor won’t make him quit secular music, added that he decided to keep quiet when he had issues with his former records label and ex-wife.
“My spiritual life is different from my talent. People always think that once you are doing God’s work, everything that comes out of you must be gospel. My new songs will be inspirational and about love. But my spiritual life is more important to me now than my music career” he said.
“I am not the same Soul E that people used to know. I have grown and it will reflect in my music. When I joined the Nigerian music industry, I didn’t have to do commercial songs. Yet, I became popular.
“But I don’t plan to record the album in Lesotho. I still have my producers in Nigeria and I plan to work with them.”
