Sensational gospel singer, Bola Thani aka Bethany has revealed why she is passionate about waxing soulful gospel music and the inspiration behind her song titled; “Iyanu” which happens to be the Theme of the 2020 Annual Convention of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
The singer who doubles as the Assistant Pastor with The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Victory Temple, Charlotte, USA, in an online interview on Wednesday said that she has always been passionate about living a praiseful and grateful life unto God.
Bola Thani, who hails from Ikakumo Akoko in Ondo State, Nigeria, while also reflecting on her works done so far which includes three albums, said that God has been the motivating factor for her.
She said; “Having covenanted my life unto God right from my youth, I’ve always been passionate about living a praiseful and grateful life unto God – not minding the circumstances around me.
“I reflect more on what God has done, not on what He’s yet to do. All the three albums are replete with songs of praise & worship unto God Almighty.”
While responding to a question on the motive behind her single “Iyanu”, Bola Thani, who has been privileged to minister on various platforms with several reputable gospel artistes, said that it had to do with the birth of her second child.
The gospels singer said: “The song, “Iyanu” was conceived after the delivery of my second child in 2007, having waited on God for six years. For you reading this, it may seem like nothing is happening, but surely, something great is happening to you.
“That baby will come; you will have a quiver full like me. I waited for children, then three pregnancies with four babies, I told God “it’s enough.” You will overflow in good health, the God of Wonders is visiting you with abundance of favor, joy, breakthroughs this season in Jesus name,” she prayed.
Bola Thani has served at the Pastoral level and in the Music department of her church in Nigeria for over two decades before she relocated to the USA in 2016.
She cut her teeth in music and is very passionate about soulful music that ministers unto God, the dying world and God’s people.
Bethany began professional music in 2003 with her debut album – “His Majesty,” and “Jesus Na Bam Bam,” her second effort was released in 2009 and the third, “Pentecost Praise” was released in 2013.
In December 2014, Bethany released two singles titled; “Tambira Jehovah,” a Shona folk song from Zimbabwe meaning Come, let’s dance for the Lord and “Mi Simi Si” (Breathe on me again).
