|Stage Name||MacNuel Davids|
|So tell us your story. Where did you grow up? What made you decide to become a gospel artist?||I grew up in cross river state, spent the early years of my life with my grand mother so growing up wasn’t so juicy because she was so protective and I wasn’t like every other kid. Moved to Lagos when I was 10, move to Kano when I was 14.
I growing up, I discovered I had something that needed an expression. I tried to express it in the best possible ways but acting, dancing, comedy, Comperé, but all these couldn’t really express what i wanted and what I had to say, then I found the expression in music. I discovered I could sing when I use to attend Winners Student Fellowship. Although before then I did commercial music with a couple of friends and it wasn’t just my thing so immediately I tried gospel, all what I had been looking for was just waiting at the balcony waiting for me to reach it.
|Do you ever make mistakes during music ministration/performances? How do you handle that?||Oh yea! I do! A couple of times I get carried away with the rhythm of the music and Ministration I forget my lines, even the lines to my song. I also remember I forgot the song arrangement while ministering and just then I needed something to keep the Ministration going so just then an idea or a song would just come and the ride just goes on smoothly|
|Do you tour? Anything interesting happen on tour that you think our readers would enjoy hearing about?||Yes! I have that on my To-Do List but in still have a lot on my table to clear up before that comes up! A lot of things are cooking already and when they all materialize, you’ll get the information ASAP|
|How do you find ways to promote your music? What works best for you?||Imitation will always be the spring board to originality. I often times look at what’s trending and then tweak it a bit to suit my target audience. I haven’t gone commercial yet so I just stick to blogging and having the songs trend on media platforms and social media as well.|
|If you could perform anywhere and with any artists (Dead or Alive) where and who would it be with? Why?||Tasha Cobbs at Hillsong Church, Micah Stampley at Potters House , Frank Edwards at The Experience, Lagos, Dare Art Alade at Music Feast , ASA Live in Concert, Johnny Drille, M.I, Djinee.|
|Do you have a manager or your prefer to manage your music yourself? How can one reach you if they would like to have you perform/minister at their program/event?||I presently don’t have a manager. You can put me on a call; I check my schedules; get permission from my home church; and make some enquiries about your ministry and objective of the meeting; and, that’s it!|
|So, what’s next? Any new upcoming projects that you want to talk about?||Yea… working on an Afro pop songs. It’s different from what I have on platforms. I know you’ll like it.|
|If you weren’t making music, what would you be doing?||I would be doing marketing and Publicity for corporate firms and brand development also.|
|What should fans look forward to in the next couple of months, year or so?||Just wait for the Banger!
I’m making a lot of changes and add-ons to my as a brand. And it’s getting public very soon.
