Legendary Juju maestro, Evangelist Ebenezer Obey, popularly nicknamed the ‘Chief Commander,’ has reacted to the Grammy win of Burna Boy and Wizkid.

The musician disclosed that, having watched the two artistes thrive in the Nigerian music industry, he was not surprised that both were announced winners of the global entertainment award.

“I feel so happy about it. At last, he (Burna Boy) and Wizkid have won Grammy Awards and it has brought me great joy,” he said.

He also had some soothing words of advice for young artistes.

“They should know that the sky is the limit. Anyone who is ready to work hard would reap the fruits of their labours,” he stated.

Obey, who clocks 79 in some days, also declared that he would spend the rest of his life praising God. He said, “I feel so happy that God has added another year to my age. I am going to spend the remainder of my life thanking Him and showing gratitude for all He has done for me. I have every reason to be thankful.

“There have been death rumours about me more than four times. To have been in the music industry for over 60 years is worth thanking God for always. My plan was to have a low-key love celebration and use the day to seek the face of the Lord.

“Now, all plans are for my eightieth birthday which is just a year away. That’s when I plan to have a celebration thanksgiving in a greater dimension. However, my birthday falls on Easter Saturday this year, so some of my children (gospel artistes, not biological) plan to organise a nine-hour praise programme to commemorate the day. So, I would just have a thanksgiving service in church on Easter Sunday,” he said.
