Xtrmbasepro: With so much excited in my heart and mind,I bring to you a fine lady, full of grace and fun! Lemme not do the hype now. Let’s meet her
Hey Yadah, how you doing mehn?🤪
Yadah: Heyyyy. I’m good. Enjoying this weather… Feels like I’m in some strange country you know 😂.
Xtrmbasepro: Shebi you are in Russia? Abi you are back to Nigeria😌
Yadah: I’m back dear. You understand what I’m saying
Xtrmbasepro: If you didn’t bring anything for boys,just go back!
Yadah: Boys will have their stuff oh. Please. Lemme stay please
Xtrmbasepro: Its okay.Tell us what you want us to know about you. I meant you should introduce yourself. Let us meet you ma.
Yadah: I am Agaga praise Kukeurim stage named YADAH, which is an expression of “Praise” in Hebrew. I am from cross River State, Nigeria. A graduate of Nasarawa State University (Economics Education).
I am a singer, song writer, fashion designer and a teacher. I believe I am enough for all I was born to be and do. I am the voice of Jesus to nations, and with my music I hope to bring people to the realization of salvation in Christ and the endless love of the father.
Xtrmbasepro: Good to have you here Yadah.
Welcome to Artiste and the art. A platform where we discuss about music and the making process.
Yadah: Oh. Thank you. I’m already sipping my juice. Thank you 😍
Xtrmbasepro: So for how long have you been a recording artiste?
Yadah: A year and months.
Xtrmbasepro: You don’t mean it!
Yadah: Yeah I do
Xtrmbasepro: A year and 4months. For you to come out this strong and strategic, it means you have been doing a lot of study and practice. And also planning
Yadah: Aside the fact that I’ve been doing a lot of study, I’ll love to add that I have the right people in my team. They are highly supportive, they believe in me… It’s enough to make me not sleep. And I thank God, I owe everything to Him.
Yadah: Planning… Yeah. Strategic plans.
Xtrmbasepro: There’s so much proof that you have the right team. If not,the you I know would sleep🕺🏾
Yadah: Hahaha. I wouldn’t agree. But I wouldn’t fight that still. I’ll rather say… Thank God I have the right team. 😂
Xtrmbasepro: One of our followers wants to know how long you have been singing, not professionally.
Yadah: OK.. I’ve been singing since I was 10 or so… Children’s church choir you know. I never took it that serious anyways
Xtrmbasepro: Okay. Good to know. Thanks for your responses so far.
Xtrmbasepro: About this saying “I am the voice of Jesus to the nations”. How did it come about?
Yadah: Wow. That’s a huge question you know.
I started out just thinking anything good…not negative, was gospel music. And then when I realized what the gospel of Christ was scripturally, the forgiveness of sins and salvation, the finished works of Christ, I had to change fast. I let go of countless songs.. They were good, but they weren’t the gospel of Christ. The gospel is about salvation, that’s what I mean with being the “voice of Jesus to nations”.
My music speaks about Christ, all we are in him, all we have in Him.
Xtrmbasepro: Now,this is deep. So not all good songs are the gospel of Christ
Yadah: Oh yes. And yes again!!!
Xtrmbasepro: Can you throw more light on this?
Yadah: The gospel we are asked to share… As related to the believers… Is the gospel of Christ. It’s definite. There can be gospel about anything else.. But our assignment is definite. This is the power of God into salvation, something as foolish as preaching the gospel. I don’t know what more light to throw on this. It’s as simple as that. Our assignment is definite.
Xtrmbasepro: Great. Thanks for your responses so far.
Yadah: Thank you sir.
Yadah: Juice haf finish 😂
Xtrmbasepro: Lemme pour you some more.. But sip like a celebrity this time!
Yadah: Is it your sip? 😂
Xtrmbasepro: You are here for interview. Not juice “taview”. Sip like a celebrity!
Xtrmbasepro: Now,we would want you to describe how the music making process is like for you?
Yadah: The music making process. Was initially tough. My first song “goodie goodie “. It was war before I opened my mouth to sing. I was scared and panicky.
But you know, every producer I’ve worked with has been extremely patient and loving. They make life easier. And major thanks to them. Tklex, AY klasiq, KI and Donsam. Super super great people. They make the process worth it, without excess auto -tune 😂
Yadah: That’s about recording.
For song writing, it’s been fun. Baba God no dey fail at all at all. The songs come… Sometimes while recording
Also, I prefer to write my songs, have the tune in mind before any beat is created.
Xtrmbasepro: I think this is key to newbies. It gives the producer less stress and you as the artiste end up satisfied because you got exactly what you had in mind
Yadah: True that. May not work for other people.
Xtrmbasepro: Yea sure.
Xtrmbasepro: Has there been one particular moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?
Yadah: Hmmm.. Every time I do anything, I’m super excited and proud. For my kind of person, it takes the lot to do anything that goes out to the public. So I’m proud of every work I put out.
Xtrmbasepro: Oh that’s lovely. I guess that’s the next big thing.
Xtrmbasepro: Can we talk about your musical influences? Who are those guys that you have been listening to?
Yadah: Kim burrell, kierra sheard, Tasha Cobbs. my love for Jesus culture and hillsong, too deep to express.
Xtrmbasepro: I see…
Yadah,thank you so much for your responses so far.
Yadah: Thank you too. ☺
Xtrmbasepro: So what has been your biggest challenge so far in the industry? And have you overcome it?
Yadah: There seems to be an invisible, maybe margin in between the gospel and non-gospel singers. It’s a huge challenge when certain sites carry your songs and others don’t… ☺.
Music is capital-intensive, finance poses great challenges. A lot of projects and dreams that can’t come to fruition without cash. But I thank God, He won’t let his work suffer
Xtrmbasepro: Not at all. He’s providing every resource needed for His work.
Xtrmbasepro: So if you didn’t become a singer, let me guess🤔
You would be a fashion designer?
Yadah: Yes. A photographer And a script writer too 😂
Xtrmbasepro: So you are a photographer too?We didn’t know naa.
Yadah: No. Just one of those side passions 😂
Xtrmbasepro: So let’s crown this up ma
Xtrmbasepro: If you can have your fans remember you for one thing,what would it be?
Yadah: I would want them to remember how my songs always reminded them of Father’s love and their inheritance in Christ. Also, they should remember I never gave up, you know, I won’t!!!
Xtrmbasepro: I pray for seriousness upon you🙌🏽. Receive it!!
Yadah: Amen 😂
Xtrmbasepro: That’s sweet and heavy. Don’t give up!
Yadah: Thank you, I won’t
Xtrmbasepro: Happy you had your juice like a celebrity this time around. 😄
Yadah: Where’s the juice? 😂
Xtrmbasepro: Just go home.
Xtrmbasepro: Thank you so much for staying with us.
Xtrmbasepro: Any final word for our audience?
Yadah: Thank you for the privilege too.
Yadah: I like my audience to know that beyond me wanting them to hear or support me, it’s my heart desire that they experience the gospel and it becomes a reality in all we preach. I also hope they realize that they are enough… Enough for all they are called to be and do.
Finally, that they can share the gospel always. Everyone has to hear such great a news.
Xtrmbasepro: Thank you.
It was fun and educative having you here. I want to let you know that we care and we will always support you and your music. Keep keeping it real. Keep spreading the gospel and keep being the voice of Jesus to the nations.
Yadah: Oh. Thank you so much CEO. I celebrate you and all you’re doing too. Thank you for your support. I’m grateful
Xtrmbasepro: Thank you Yadah.
Enjoy the good life and we wish you everything good…
