APOSTLE PAUL MIXTAPE WITH OVA SKILLZ (Young & Relevant Series)



Spoken word!
That talk that’s a fine mix of rhythm and rhymes, poetry, energy, and dramatic gestures, combined to pass a message.

I love spoken word!

I hope you do too.

So recently, there has been this twist to serving people the gospel on a golden spoken word tray. It’s called Gospel Rap.

While rap has been around since 19-memorial-oh-oh, using rap as a tool to pass on the message of Christ and the Cross has only recently started becoming popular and acceptable.

In the past, people would condemn gospel rap artist saying they were copying the world and bringing the unholy into the holy place.  Today, the earth is apparently getting filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters covers the seas (Habakkuk 2:14) and rap is one of those channels through which the glory of the Lord is covering the earth.

Religion made us think all the fine things were for and of the world. But TRUTH in JESUS makes us see that all things were made for HIM (Jesus) and through HIM (Colossians 1:16). Therefore RAP art was made by and for CHRIST and so RAP is HOLY!

Today on Young and Relevant Series, We have an amazing Gospel Rap Artiste with us going by the stage name OVA SKILLZ!!!

ANNE: Hey, Man of God! Good to have you here and welcome. May we meet you please? 

OVA SKILLZ:  Hey, Anne. Thanks for having me on the young and relevant series. I am Ovie Austine Akoke popularly known as Ova Skillz

ANNE : How long have you been a Gospel Rap Artist? 


OVA SKILLZ: I have been into Gospel Rap for over three years now

ANNE: Wow, that’s quite some time. What motivated you to take this path? 

OVA SKILLZ: Jesus is My Motivation, when I realised how He Gave His Life for me, it motivated me to bring people into the Knowledge of Him

ANNE: Awesome!! What has your experience as a spoken word/Gospel Rap artist been like so far?

OVA SKILLZ: My experience has been good and fair so far, I just thank God for steady improvement and what He will do through me


ANNE: We wait!! The Apostle Paul mix-tape is such a powerful album! What inspired the Apostle Paul mixed tape? 

OVA SKILLZ: What actually inspired the Apostle Paul Mix Tape is Simple.... It's JESUS!
I just want to bring the Person of Jesus simply and clearly to the World, that in Him alone we have Eternal Life Guaranteed

ANNE: Oh Yeah… Eternal Life Guaranteed in CHRIST ALONE. I heard that one!!
Just as though you read the inscription on the J-TOW T-shirt I have on right now.

OVA SKILLZ: (LAUGHS)



ANNE:  What exactly would you like your listeners to encounter on the Apostle Paul Mix Tape album? 

OVA SKILLZ:  I would want my listeners to witness Jesus.  If they could pay keen attention to the songs,  it will minister LIFE to them.  If checked the album art, you will notice we did not use tracks, we used EPISTLES. Which means those songs are not just songs, they are letters of the Spirit.


ANNE:   Yeah!! (Tongues).  This is so making sense. On the part of it been epistles, I CONCUR. I listened to it and every track was a hit epistle for me, back to back!

OVA SKILLZ: (LAUGHS) Thank God

ANNE:    Which of the songs/epistles on that album is most dear to you and why?

OVA SKILLZ: Track 7 which is “Jesus Dey Worry Me”
This Song talks about our day to day Christian life. How we have been mocked, discouraged,  accused and  all other forms of spite.
It's a song that reminds you that you are not alone, that Jesus got your back and you are full of Him.


ANNE: Who is/are your favourite spoken word  or gospel Rap  inspiration at the moment? 

 OVA SKILLZ: My favorite Spoken Word Artiste presently is Pastor Judas Smith

ANNE: What's the big picture for you as a Gospel Rap artiste?

OVASKILLZ: The Big Picture is JESUS PREACHED! I see Jesus being preached everywhere via Rap, I see nations calling us to reveal Jesus to them though Rap, We take over and we keep reigning forever.

ANNE: Glory!!!
What are your final words to your audience, please‎?

OVA SKILLZ:  You all should KNOW JESUS for yourself. Don’t just rely on other people’s knowledge about JESUS. ENCOUNTER JESUS and enjoy Christianity.


ANNE: Awesome! Thanks a lot Ovaskillz. We honour you for being YOUNG AND RELEVANT. Keep inspiring young people to embrace LIFE/JESUS!

OVASKILLZ: (Smiles) Thank you so much ma

HOW TO SPOT A GOOD MAN

Last night at Insure your marriage  online conference, I was privileged to teach on the subject, Good men are hard to find. Is that  true? Destroying the myths and lies that make women settle for less than God's best. This post is a copy of what I shared with them. I did a different post for a meaty part of the Q and A.  Check it out. Once you are done with this.  Let's Define God's best God's best in marriage is a spouse and a situation that sets you up for growth  in these areas 👉Spiritual 👉Financial 👉Emotional 👉Relational The term set up means it may not be in the "package" that you expect because it is first committed to helping you mature into God's picture of you,  than it is about making you feel fly. If you truly understand this, you will be delivered from these o n your marital journey,  ✅ Comparison  ✅Jealousy ✅ impatience/Haste ✅ Discouragement Please don't misunderstand me. I am not saying that your current psychologically sick b

WISE COUNSEL TO QUESTIONS SINGLES ASK - PART 1

The difference between being at peace in a relationship and having your heart troubled till you can't breathe is in the counsel you heed to. I've seen beautiful relationships even marriages crumble because  one or both of them listened to a "thus says the Lord, that's not your husband/wife".  While I believe that God leads us in the area of marriage, He doesn't expressly tell everyone who to marry. There are some people he told.  However, he has placed wisdom pillars on our path to help make the right decisions. The questions below are asked by real people I have  met on my ministry journey.  I will keep adding to it as I find the time to write here.  For now, I hope these ones would help hold the torch as you search the truth for your specific situation. Question 1   If you have someone coming to you for a relationship who takes alcohol like one or two bottles, doesn't get drunk on it and says he is a Christian. Can this person be classified as a good Chr

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT

Social media has always been there; but not everyone paid close attention or saw the need to set up a profile for themselves or their businesses.   With COVID-19 radically obstructing the norm, more individuals and businesses have woken up to the necessity of having a social media profile.  I believe you have been woke for a very long time or perhaps you are just waking up. Either way, congratulations!!! Perhaps you got on board and  realised that it is not as easy as people make it seem.  You wonder how to successfully handle your social media pages to correctly represent your personality and opinion as an individual.  You have barely figured out how to use Facebook to successfully promote your business, only to hear people say Instagram is the best marketing platform and you are confused. You barely find time to post because your actual life or business routine is too full You hear about the many social media platforms- google+, Pinterest, Linkedin, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Perisco
