“It’s a calling that I should go to the world” – Phemmy Praise
Today on TheInspiredDream.com.ng we have someone who has been making music for quite some time. Permit me to introduce to you Joshua Sam Olufemi popularly known as Phemmy Praise.
Phemmy Praise is a Gospel musician par-excellence who has been in the music industry since 1991, but professionally since 1995.
He released a live recording Album titled ‘JESUS’ in the year 2014. His famous songs are ‘God that does wonders’ and ‘kini moje’. He has ministered in over 250 Redeemed churches in Lagos and outside Lagos and over 50 other churches that are not in the RCCG domain.
Phemmy Praise sees music as a ministry he must fulfil. He says: “Its a calling that I should go to the world and declare His (God’s) praises to the world.” He does this by leading praise and worship and soul lifting songs.
When asked where he sees himself in the next 5 years, he says, “Aaaaa 5 years is too much! In the next 3years I see my self as one of the topmost worship ministers in the whole world like Sonie Badu, Micah Stampley, and Tye Tribbet.”
His mentors and role models are Chintok Ishaku, Evangelist Tayo Akinyemi, Micah stampley,Tye tribbet and Nathaniel Bassey.
On whether he has faced challenges, he says
“I have had situations where I had a ministration and at the same time I had an official assignment. It has usually been a tough decision to make but I normally negotiate with my office to postpone my schedule so that I can go for my ministration, but sometimes when It’s too cumbersome I will send someone to represent me in my ministration. So as to allow me market some stuff to be able to make ends meet. Other times I allow my business to suffer to enable God’s work fly if that is what it takes.”
Phemmy Praise advices young people to remain steadfast and not be discouraged. He says, “they should believe, be diligent and be patient. With concentration and consecration they will get there and above all they should depend on God.”
