“Some years ago in 2005 while praying on a Friday, a burden was laid in my heart to reach out, the name devotion came and I was shown vision in music and for me to venture into music it was after a prophecy,” he said.
“I was told that I was going to be a great musician bringing many to Christ and in a dream, God spoke to me of what I am supposed to do majoring on four things namely; repentance, salvation, kingdom of God and the coming of Christ.”
Devotion C who has recorded 16 songs said he has a burden to see people saved.
