John Asiemo, the veteran singer, aka Daddy Showkey, says he has rejected an offer of millions of naira to cut his dreadlocks.
Showkey spoke as a guest during the ‘Sempe’ Sunday service recently held at the God Bless Nigeria Church led by Pastor Tony Rapu.
Sharing his life story during the service, Showkey said:-
“Today, people call me ‘Daddy Showkey’, but they don’t know my story. If I can be an example to others, there is no one here that cannot be used as an example. I used to be called
I cannot believe that people would want to relate with me now. “I promised God that
if he moved me from ghetto to grace, I would never cut my hair. I challenged God that if he could make me successful,
I would keep my hair as a covenant with him. Truly, God has overdone it over and again. I did not keep the dreadlocks to be a ‘rasta-man’. It is because of the covenant I have with God. I have been offered millions of naira to cut my hair but I refused because I had made a covenant with God.”
The Ajegunle-born artiste also stated that he attended the service in order to use his story to encourage others.
“I am here because I know the only way one can change another life is by sharing one’s story with that person. Someone asked me when I had an encounter with God.
I had an encounter with God a long time ago. I told the person they don’t listen
to my music because all my songs are testimonies.
I have never smoked Indian hemp since I was born. God has a reason for choosing me to be a testimony.”
