THROWBACK SPOTLIGHT: NATHANIEL BASSEY

It’s Thursday today! And today on our Throwback Spotlight we feature Nigerian internationally renowned artist and minister, Nathaniel Bassey.

Nathaniel Bassey is a Nigerian recording and performing gospel music artist and minister who started his career in 2008 with songs like “Someone’s Knocking” and “Book Of Life” off his “Elohim” album.

He is best recognized for his songs “Onise Iyanu”, “Olowogbogboro”, “Miracle Worker”, “The Son Of God”, “Strong Tower” and most recently “Olorun Agbaye”.

BRIEF BIO OF NATHANIEL BASSEY

Nathaniel Bassey was born in Lagos, Nigeria. He is from Ikot Ofon Ikono, Uyo local government area in Akwa-Ibom state, South-South Nigeria.

His father, Mr E Joshua Bassey, was a minister in The Apostolic Church Bashua Assembly and from an early age he developed a love for both music and the gospel.

He was inspired when He saw Dr Panam Percy Paul, a prominent Nigerian gospel music icon in concert over twenty years ago and since then, his passion for music has grown and translated into various musical experiences.

In his early years, he developed a rather uncommon interest for jazz music and began listening, imitating and playing to the music of Louis Armstrong, Miles Davies, Clifford Brown, Charlie Parker, Stan Getz and Kirk Whalum, Phil Driscoll, Hugh Masakela and other Jazz luminaries.

His zeal for the Jazz form would later stir him to seek out bands and groups along the Jazz lines. He then joined a top jazz quartet in Lagos, Spectrum 4, where he played alongside his childhood friends.

About that time Nat, as he is fondly called, was approached by one of the most respectable figures in the Nigerian jazz and music circle, Elder Steve Rhodes to lead, arguably, the first Jazz Orchestra in the country – THE STEVE RHODES ORCHESTRA.

He served as band leader and lead trumpet player for a period of two years and later moved on with his music career. His peculiar and particularly soulful trumpet playing style caught the ears of top Artistes and composers within and outside the country. Teemac, Ayo Bankole Jr, Cobhams Asuquo, Wole Oni, Yinka Davies, Adlan Cruise, Funsho Ogundipe, Peter King, Sotiris Papadopoulus, Paul Petersen, The French Cultural centre, American International School, are but a few individuals and organizations that have sought his musical ingenuity.

As time passed, Nathaniel began sensing a deep yearning within. There was more to his music than he thought.

He later took time off his numerous mainstream commitments to seek the Lord under the mentorship and guidance of Late Pastor Eskor Mfon, a former Pastor of The Redeemed Christian Church Of God, City Of David Parish.

This decision attracted fierce criticisms from friends, artistes and colleagues who thought it unthinkable abandoning what was becoming a thriving mainstream music career to serve exclusively at a local church.

As he developed an intimate fellowship with the Holy Spirit, he then realized that music was more than an item to fill a space in time but was a fundamental tool in the praise and worship of the Lord.

Soon after, a music ministry was born and for Nathaniel, the main thrust was WORSHIP – Music of heaven – one that ministered exclusively to the Lord and an avenue through which HE related with His people.

His trumpet playing coupled with a calm singing style has since ushered many in concerts, crusades and churches into the presence of the LORD.

Nathaniel, a graduate of Politics and International Relations at the University of London, also serves as the director of music at the RCCG; The King’s Court, Lagos.

He has attended music courses in and out of the country including the Middlesex University Summer School UK, where he studied popular music and music business. He writes, sings and produces his own music and records with diverse groups of musicians.

Nathaniel’s debut album Elohim was recorded and mixed in Cape Town, South Africa in the year 2008.

It has been described as a spiritual and artistic masterpiece with the hit track “Someone’s knocking at the door” a soft-rock tune currently generating so much interest locally and internationally.

As of today, Nathaniel Bassey remains one of the most renowned gospel music artists in Nigeria and in Africa.

The center of Power and Strength
There is nothing you cannot Change
There’s no bondage you cannot Break

If you have said it
Then you will do it
Cause You have a Track record
Of keeping Words
And you’re not about
To stop doing it now

Nigerian Gospel music artist and minister Nathaniel Bassey has announced that he would be releasing a new song titled ‘OLORUN AGBAYE’ on Friday.

Nathaniel Bassey had initially planned a release of the song for an earlier date which he previously announced, however due to the recent incidence of unrest throughout the country, it was postponed.

A new date has however been announced for the release of the song, the date being Friday October 30th, 2020. It will be released to digital platforms.

The song ‘OLORUN AGBAYE’ is a spiritually lifting new tune which features Chandler Moore and OBA and is set to bless each listener.

Nathaniel Bassey made the announcement of the new release date through his Instagram page saying:

Contrary to my initial promise earlier in the month, a few days back, I thought of postponing the release of this song, OLORUN AGBAYE – YOU ARE MIGHTY. Feeling the mood wasn’t right due to lots of happenings lately

But again, I thought shouldn’t this even be the best time to release it?

Shouldn’t I release Hope, Faith and Love at a time we need them the most?

The children of Israel asked why they should sing the Lord’s song in a strange land.

Well, I’ve decided that we would release sounds of heaven to a dark world groaning for the manifestation of The Sons of God.

So come FRIDAY, 30th October 2020, at 6pm NIGERIAN TIME, We’ll be releasing this one. So subscribe to our YouTube channel. And look out for it on the other online music platforms.

I pray it releases such grace and glory into an atmosphere already laden with fear and anxiety in Jesus’ name.

Thanks @chandlerdmoore and @obamusic1 for getting on this with me.

Warning ⚠️

Don’t listen to this while driving!😏

Especially when the song goes towards the end. Might make you high in the spirit!

Anticipate the new tune from Nathaniel Bassey on Friday! It promises to be a hit!

LYRICS “THIS GOD IS TOO GOOD” by Nathaniel Bassey

Chorus.
I will worship you forever
Love you forever because
This God is too good o

Verse 1:
I know a God, who’s merciful and kind
Faithful and gracious
I’m the apple of his eyes
And the thought that fills his heart
Every Morning, noon and night
He loved me when I didn’t care
And was patient till I came
Running back into his arms
Look how he turned my life around
Making me a shining light
His glory to reveal

Verse 2
Don’t look too far to see how good he is
Just look at me
He took me from the miry clay
Set my foot upon the rock
I’m standing in his righteousness
He took away my sin and shame
Gave me a brand new name
His beloved and the redeemed
See how he turned my life around
Made me a shinning light his glory to reveal”
