Nathan kickstarted his musical journey by singing in his local church choir. After a while, he joined the Rhodes Orchestra, where he played the trumpet for two years.

In 2018, Nathan became a prominent figure in the Nigerian Christian community, playing a key role in the annual gathering known as The Experience.

His debut album, “Elohim,” was a remarkable milestone. Recorded and mixed in Cape Town, South Africa, back in 2008, the album was hailed as a spiritual and artistic masterpiece.

The standout track, “Someone’s Knocking at the Door,” a soothing soft-rock tune, quickly gained popularity locally and internationally.

Nathan’s impact reached new heights in 2017 when he started the #HallelujahChallenge, done annually. Every night, from 12:00 am to 1:00 am, he and fellow believers dedicated an hour to worshiping God.
