Award-winning singer, Nikki Laoye has revealed the source of all her hit songs.

The Nigerian singer who has just released her second album, ‘123 Project’, has been in the spotlight for all the right reasons, with a number of hit songs affecting the lives of her listeners.

Nikki Laoye believes that all her hit singles came directly from God, as he sought to influence her life during deep situations.

She told Pulse TV: “The truth is that my hit singles that talk about God, were never given to me. That’s a funny irony, I never sat down to write them. The first My very first single ever, ‘Never felt this way before’, I remember the first album was already complete. We didn’t need any other song.

I play a little bit of the piano, and  that day I was just sitting on the piano, just, playing a way and all of a sudden, the song just came, and I was like, ‘okay God, which song is this one…it started coming like that, and it was because at that time I was going through a season of issues with relationships and all of that, and I was just like “Go I really don’t understand what is wrong with these men’, and all of that.

And God was like, ‘take a chill pill, see the way that I love you, you need to understand that that is what love is supposed to be all about’, and that’s how that song came, and it went on to be a hit.

This was just the first. There was also a bit of a replay with the creation process of  her second hit single, ‘Only You’. Nikki got inspiration in 2011 after her father passed away, with her world spinning around.

“The other major song, ‘Only you’, that got a lot of awards as well, also came through an experience, for me.” Nikki continued. “It came after I lost my dad, and it as a very terrifying situation for me and my family. It was so crazy, I was like God has abandoned me, but God used a friend of mine who happened to be my PA at that time, Nelson, one of my very close friends. He was always playing this song around me, I felt this nudge from God  saying I’m the one that gives you beauty from ashes. Please allow me to take care of this situation. So that’s how the song came.

“The truth is every special song I have had about God has come out of one major deep experience or deep place of my life because for me it’s not all about creating just any kind of regular worship or praise song to God. It’s about the song that has meaning, and anyone can relate to it because the stories I have heard from people that picked up this song, the testimonies, the miracles that have happened to people.”

“It’s the beauty and what God uses it to do at the end of the day that glorifies his name that really matters to me.”
