Veteran Nollywood actress Barbara Odoh has a new gig. The ageless beauty has released a gospel album.
She told Frontline News Online, that her music is an expression of her love for God and the joy she experiences in worshiping him.
With songs like, ‘I Will Still Be Joyful’, ‘Comforted In You’ and the title track, ‘Who Am I’, the actress is making a claim in the country’s gospel music scene.
Speaking on why she released an album, during the Coronavirus lockdown, Barbara, who many still remember for her role in the Nollywood classic, Glamour Girls, expressed confidence that her songs will inspire many at this difficult period.
“There are two things I believe in and these are ‘love’ and ‘worship’. I know that God is love and I was created to worship him (God). There is really been a lot God has done for me and I thought the only way I can show him gratitude, the only way to give back to him is to praise him in songs”, she said.
Babara revealed that recording an album is a fulfillment of a long held dream.
“People who know me very well will remember that I have always performed music on stage. I used to sing at the popular Terris Burger Surulere, Lagos. I’ve sang at big events even on impromptu on a few occasions and I had people applauding me.
“Music has always been a big part of me. I love to dance, I love to sing. I can sing for a whole day. At this stage, I thought I should share this part of me with world”, she further said.
