Why I’m now a musician – Prophetess Nonnie

Nigerian Women in Clergy President cum Prophetic Minstrel, Prophetess
Nonnie Roberson has stated that a lot of humanitarian crisis can be
solved just with the fusion of religion and entertainment.Speaking
with journalists on the sideline of the recent 1MillionManWalk against
Cancer put together by the wife of Kebbi State Governor, Dr. Zainab S
Bagudu, through her foundation, Medicaid Cancer Foundation in
collaboration with the Nigerian Women in Clergy, the Prophetess avowed
that a symbiotic relationship between religion and entertainment must
always be maintained, stating that a lot of humanitarian crisis in the
country can easily be tackled if the two are effectively used.
Responding
to why she chose to become a musician almost at the peak of her
religious career, she said, ” Both entertainment and religion are
similar vehicles for expression. Sensitization against certain things,
such as this campaign against Cancer will achieve better result with the
fusion of the two. I can’t see any man or woman of God achieving the
best result in his or her calling without the marriage of the two.
That’s why we have choirs in churches. Many learn and get inspired more
through entertainment. I’m into music today because I want to reach out
to more people that God wants me to touch for him. Through my latest
single, many lives have been saved. I tell you, we have not started just
yet. When God asks you to do certain things, you can’t just resist.
It’s like when Samuel was called. I didn’t know what God wanted until I
dropped the song. God has performed his work through the song, I must
say.”
Prophetess
Nonnie who was with many Nigerian artistes including Godwin crooner,
Korede Bello, said she would be featuring some of the artistes in her
subsequent releases so as to churn out more universally accepted songs.
She said “You can see me with most of these young artistes. They are my
children, but we will do things together as children of God. May be, one
or two of them will join me subsequently in passing God’s messages to
the people. That’s why I said religion and entertainment are one and the
same. The only difference is in the style. I have my style though,”
Nonnie said.
Speaking on why most diseases linger without
solution, she said, “The bible says, my people perish for lack of
knowledge. Most children of God have refused to accept reality in the
name of religion, and that is very wrong. We need to accept the fact
that we could be victims of certain ailments at any time, so we
shouldn’t shy away from knowing about any kind of disease. Most women
will tell you ‘God forbid, I can’t contact Cancer. It’s not my portion’
so they won’t even bother to be educated on the effect and solutions. We
don’t need to be too religious to our own detriment. That you are a
child of God does not mean that you should ignore your health. God works
in mysterious ways and that could even be why he wants to educate you
on some diseases. Don’t shy away from learning about them.”
The
Pastor further affirmed that she will work more with entertainers in
other campaigns in just to ensure healthy lifestyle in the country. She
said. “It’s not only about Cancer; there are other diseases and
humanitarian crisis that need our attention. I will continue to work
with spirited Nigerians and entertainers in order to tackle them
head-on. On the whole, entertainment and religion are vehicles for peace
in every nation.”
