Though it has been about five years since singer, Chukie Edozien, aka Lynxxx, announced to his fans that he had become a born-again Christian, many are still expecting him to release a gospel song to conform with his new status.
However, in an interview on saturday, the ‘Fine Lady’ singer reiterated that God had not directed him to become a gospel singer. He said, “It has been five years since I have been a born again Christian and I’ve never said I am doing gospel music. I am still Lynxxx and I still make good music. The only difference is that my lifestyle has changed. I am not releasing a gospel music or album anytime soon because I don’t feel like God has pointed me in that direction. However, expect new music from me.”
The singer who has been off the music radar for some time also said he had been spending his time building businesses. He added, “For the past five years, I have been building businesses. To be realistic, I cannot bequeath a music career to my children but I can give them businesses I have built for them to inherit. I no longer think about myself alone. Now, I am concerned with building and leaving something for generations to come. If I have been able to sustain myself without making music for a certain period, it means I have been doing the right thing by thinking of more ways to generate income.”
The Syndik8 Records signee however noted that music had done amazing things for him. “Music did amazing thing for me by putting me in key positions to be able to build further. Everyone needs to understand that knowing someone for something doesn’t mean that is what the person will die doing. If one doesn’t invest in more streams of income, when the music stops selling, how would one be able to sustain oneself? I have a background in business, so for me, it is beyond just music.”
