In his words:
‘This is a dream come true because I have always been blessed with her songs right from the days she was brought to the Obafemi Awolowo University as a guest artiste.
She worships God with ease. Being on the same stage with her simply means the anointing that worked for will definitely work for me
After the event, while we were taking pictures, she said, ‘Tom,you will go far in this field, just make sure you remain in Christ even when you fame comes’ and I simply said an affirmative Amen because it came with authority’
