While we anticipate the song forever by minister Darlington, to be released on the 14th of July 2020, we had a close interview with him on the song, his ministry and personal life
MAY WE MEET YOU?
I am Igboakwu Darlington, I hail from Ika North East Local Government in Delta State, I am a Music Minister, Preacher, Mathematician and a fish farmer . I Hold a BSC (ed) in Mathematics from Delta State University Abraka.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING MUSIC PROFESSIONALLY?
I have always been into music from my teenage years but not professionally though. I started my music ministry in 2017 even though I have led a few choir groups from my university days.
WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT YOUR BRAND OF MUSIC?
My music brand is borne out of a vision to see a surge of power in the body of Christ, through spirit inspired music. Reading my Bible and seeing how the minstrels operated , I came to realise that music and the anointing are best of friends. So this has shapened my perspective of how my music should be.
YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA HANDLES, FACEBOOK ESPECIALLY HAS BEEN AN EYE-OPENER ON THE DIVERSE ISSUES IT ADDRESSES, WHAT HAS BEEN THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THOSE POST?
I see social media as a tool to preach the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and to call back the children of disobedience into the wisdom of the Just. I Think we must use every medium available to us to make a noise about our faith in Christ Jesus, this has been my inspiration.
YOU WERE OFFLINE FOR A LONG TIME AND YOUR COME BACK CAME WITH THE SONG – FOREVER, WAS THAT WHAT YOU’VE BEEN WOKING ON WHILE YOU WERE AWAY?
My reason for being offline actually had nothing to do with my ministry, I actually changed location from my native country temporarily and I had issues accessing my social media accounts because I couldn’t receive a confirmation code at the time, but I thank God it’s all sorted now. Tell me how much you missed me. Lol
TELL US ABOUT YOUR UPCOMING SINGLE- FOREVER AND WHAT INSPIRED THE SONG?
Forever is a song borne out of fellowship, I actually got it in the place of prayer as my custom is, I always worship when I pray and at that time sounds are given to me. Forever will stir something up in your inner man, The Holy Spirit is set to magnify the song in the ears of listeners until they crave for him till FOREVER.
IS FOREVER A LOVE SONG OR…?
Forever is actually a love song between us and our maker, telling him how much we want him like you express to your spouse. It’s a song of KOINONIA
( FELLOWSHIP )
TELL US THREE THINGS A LOT OF PERSONS DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
1. I can bet that a lot of people do not know I am a fish farmer. Lol
2. Also a lot of people do not also know that I was born and raised in Ajegunle, they think I am a cool headed minister. Lol
3. My last response is kind of weird, a lot of people actually see me as someone who is perfect, they look up to me like an angel, maybe because of what they see God do for me or through me, little did they know that i am a man of many mistakes but it is Mercy that has brought me here and not by my power nor by might.
INTERESTING! WHAT ARE YOUR WORDS TO THOSE LOOKING UP TO YOU?
For those looking up to me,I would like to say that the best way to look up to a man is to pray for the man, that is the only way to be sure that you won’t be disappointed , keep praying for me and I believe we would achieve great things together, I love you all and I do not take your love for granted.
IS THERE ANY MESSAGE YOU LOVE TO PASS TO THE WORLD?
My message to the world remains that JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY SON OF GOD AND THERE’S NO SALVATION IN ANY OTHER NAME. DO SOMETHING FOR JESUS WITH THE LIFE THAT YOU LIVE.
HOW CAN YOU BE REACHED ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
