Music star, turned prophet, Emmanuel Ifechukwu Okose , famously known as Soul E has explained why he dumped secular music for God’s work.
In a recent interview, he said God threatened to make him cripple if he fails to do his work and also dismissed the predictions that Nigeria would split by 2015.
You started out as a secular singer and now you are a prophet. Do you regret the time you wasted doing secular music?
No, the Bible says in all things give thanks. My life is like a story, but I thank God for using me to his glory.
Your encounter with God; how did it happen?
I was in Singapore at a train station and a white man walked up to me and spoke in Yoruba, “do you want God to turn you to a cripple before you do this work? That was the turning point in my life.
Do you have any plan of opening your own church soon?
Well, I have not heard from God to do so yet, but I run a ministry called KINGDOM BUILDERS.
There are several predictions that Nigeria would break up by 2015, as a prophet, do you see that happening?
God is with this nation, so that’s a lie from the pit of hell, but some big names will go before that time, mark my words.
2015 is around the corner, do you see Jonathan coming back as president?
Well, God has not told me anything about that but, all I can say is that the man that will turn things around for Nigeria is coming soon. He will be young, but many will go down for him to come and take his place. There is hope for Nigeria. But hear this; the result of 2015 election will amaze many
