Gospel artiste releases single ahead of independence


Ahead of Nigeria’s 59th Independence Day anniversary, gospel artiste, Mr Bigger has released a single titled, “One Nigeria”.

Mr Bigger, whose real name is Bigger Ibekwe, said the song is to reignite the spirit of unity and patriotism in Nigerians.

The gospel artiste said “One Nigeria” was inspired when he saw a poster of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in Surulere, Lagos.

“I saw a very big billboard with the portrait of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo with a statement, ‘We must move forward’,” said Mr Bigger.

“I began to ponder on the statement and then I saw the beauty in all of us moving forward together and that gave birth to the song.”

On the need to promote one Nigeria through music, Mr Bigger said: “Music is something that has a lasting effect where a lot of impact will be felt.”
