Macson Justice switches to gospel music

A POPULAR Nigerian hip-hop crooner, Macson Justice Nwasike, has joined the league of ‘born again’ musicians who have switched over to gospel songs, as clearly evidenced  in his latest single album entitled, “Jesus my Lord and Saviour’ which is billed to hit the airwaves anytime from now.

    Evangelist Nwasike made this fact known during a courtesy visit to the Managing Director/CEO of Anambra Newspapers and Printing Corporation, publishers of the National Light, ‘Ka Odi Taa’ and LightSportsextra, Sir Chuka Nnabuife, at the headquarters of the outfit in the Government House Complex, Awka..

    He commended Sir Chuka Nnabuife for keeping the flag flying very high since his appointment as MD/CEO, and for the massive improvement he had brought to the longest thriving state-owned newspaper organ in the country, especially in the area of promotion of indigenous artistes and musicians, as well as sustained propagation of Igbo language and culture through its publications.

    The Awka-born music star extensively narrated how he encountered huge losses after packaging various musical jamborees and concerts attracting many “prominent wealthy people who were coming in and departing from the venue on flimsy excuses and at the end of the day, they will not come back and I will end up struggling to settle the hall fees, public address systems and other expenses.”

    He recalled how he won the overall best National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) award at Minna, Niger State, where he served in the Niger Radio and Television Station during which he released first musical hit album, ‘My Message to My President’ but he received sheer governor’s handshake without financial token unlike Lagos, Anambra and other states that give cash rewards to outstanding NYSC members.      

    The 2002 music graduate of University of Nigeria (UNN), Nsukka revealed that he had intended to establish a business there (at Minna), but was “astonished when they bluntly told me to return to my state and do the project ‘because Igbos are very dubious’.”

     As the National President of the Association of Music and Film Producers and Marketers of Nigeria (AMUFPMAN), he solicited for the cooperation of the ANPC boss towards the realisation of the objectives of the organisation in the interest of the state.

    Sir Chuka Nnabuife, in response, appreciated the initiative of the august visitor, Evangelist Macson Justice Nwasike, and reassured the continued disposition of the newspaper house towards encouraging Nigerian artistes and musicians, pointing out that the establishment now boasts of a performing theatre troupe, facilities for indoor and outdoor social events and handles all sorts of printing jobs.
