There was a time artiste, Daddy Showkey, was among the top musicians in Nigeria. But Showkey came and reigned and somehow, faded; nothing much was heard about him again. But in recent times, the singer, who became famous especially with his galala dance moves, has somewhat come to the limelight again.
And as he has made this come-back, some rumour mongers went to town with the gist that the singer visited popular Lagos pastor, T.B Joshua, to revive his career. Those who claim to know alleged that Daddy Showkey became a regular visitor to the church, hoping and praying the pastor would help revive his career.
But in an exclusive chat with PUNCH, Showkey dispelled rumours that Prophet T.B Joshua is his spiritual father. He claimed that it is not T.B Joshua’s prayers that shot him back into limelight. He however, admitted that they are good friends.
He acknowledged that he is good friends with the prophet and he often goes to pay him a visit. “It is God that has been helping me since I got back into the music industry. I don’t go to T.B Joshua’s church to worship. He is my friend. When people saw me with him, it’s either when I went to greet him on his birthday or when his building collapsed. Sometimes, I just go to greet him but I don’t worship in his church.
“T.B Joshua prays for people but my success comes from God and the good people that I know and they brought me back to the limelight and not just one person. T.B Joshua is a good man and that’s all I can say,” he said.
