United Kingdom-based gospel singer and Chartered Engineer, Seyi Weli, has said that under no condition would she remove the name of Jesus from her songs.
Maintaining that she wasn’t in competition with secular artistes, the talented songwriter told Sunday Scoop, “I am not in competition with secular musicians. This is gospel music and it is unique. This is all about sharing the Gospel with people all across the world. I will never remove the name of Jesus from my songs because that is the essence of what I do. I will do my best to produce the best music, in terms of quality, and I would leave the rest to God to touch people’s lives.”
Speaking on the inspiration behind her new singles, Agidiga and Victory (Say Yes), Weli said, “I was on a business trip and I began to think about how God had seen me through many situations and taken me to many places. He has given me victory in many battles and I will forever be thankful for that.

“Agidigba talks about how big and great God is. It also advises that when one is going through any tough situation, one shouldn’t focus on how big the problem is; rather concentrate on how big one’s God is. Victory is an assurance we have for the victory of Christ and no matter the situation one is going through, it is Jesus that has the final say.”
On her she combines her engineering career with music, the singer said, “I try not to focus now on how it would be done. I know that Gods grace is available and it’s more than I need to carry me through. Humanly speaking, with being a mother, wife, professional and singer, it can seem tough and almost impossible. But, I know God has sent me on this mission and I’m sure he would give me all the strength I need.”
Recalling how she fell in love with music, Weli said, “I fell in love with music as a kid. My dad was a choir director in church. I grew up in Nigeria and Poland and I always listened to classical music.”
