APOSTLE PAUL MIXTAPE WITH OVA SKILLZ (Young & Relevant Series)



Spoken word!
That talk that’s a fine mix of rhythm and rhymes, poetry, energy, and dramatic gestures, combined to pass a message.

I love spoken word!

I hope you do too.

So recently, there has been this twist to serving people the gospel on a golden spoken word tray. It’s called Gospel Rap.

While rap has been around since 19-memorial-oh-oh, using rap as a tool to pass on the message of Christ and the Cross has only recently started becoming popular and acceptable.

In the past, people would condemn gospel rap artist saying they were copying the world and bringing the unholy into the holy place.  Today, the earth is apparently getting filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters covers the seas (Habakkuk 2:14) and rap is one of those channels through which the glory of the Lord is covering the earth.

Religion made us think all the fine things were for and of the world. But TRUTH in JESUS makes us see that all things were made for HIM (Jesus) and through HIM (Colossians 1:16). Therefore RAP art was made by and for CHRIST and so RAP is HOLY!

Today on Young and Relevant Series, We have an amazing Gospel Rap Artiste with us going by the stage name OVA SKILLZ!!!

ANNE: Hey, Man of God! Good to have you here and welcome. May we meet you please? 

OVA SKILLZ:  Hey, Anne. Thanks for having me on the young and relevant series. I am Ovie Austine Akoke popularly known as Ova Skillz

ANNE : How long have you been a Gospel Rap Artist? 


OVA SKILLZ: I have been into Gospel Rap for over three years now

ANNE: Wow, that’s quite some time. What motivated you to take this path? 

OVA SKILLZ: Jesus is My Motivation, when I realised how He Gave His Life for me, it motivated me to bring people into the Knowledge of Him

ANNE: Awesome!! What has your experience as a spoken word/Gospel Rap artist been like so far?

OVA SKILLZ: My experience has been good and fair so far, I just thank God for steady improvement and what He will do through me


ANNE: We wait!! The Apostle Paul mix-tape is such a powerful album! What inspired the Apostle Paul mixed tape? 

OVA SKILLZ: What actually inspired the Apostle Paul Mix Tape is Simple.... It's JESUS!
I just want to bring the Person of Jesus simply and clearly to the World, that in Him alone we have Eternal Life Guaranteed

ANNE: Oh Yeah… Eternal Life Guaranteed in CHRIST ALONE. I heard that one!!
Just as though you read the inscription on the J-TOW T-shirt I have on right now.

OVA SKILLZ: (LAUGHS)



ANNE:  What exactly would you like your listeners to encounter on the Apostle Paul Mix Tape album? 

OVA SKILLZ:  I would want my listeners to witness Jesus.  If they could pay keen attention to the songs,  it will minister LIFE to them.  If checked the album art, you will notice we did not use tracks, we used EPISTLES. Which means those songs are not just songs, they are letters of the Spirit.


ANNE:   Yeah!! (Tongues).  This is so making sense. On the part of it been epistles, I CONCUR. I listened to it and every track was a hit epistle for me, back to back!

OVA SKILLZ: (LAUGHS) Thank God

ANNE:    Which of the songs/epistles on that album is most dear to you and why?

OVA SKILLZ: Track 7 which is “Jesus Dey Worry Me”
This Song talks about our day to day Christian life. How we have been mocked, discouraged,  accused and  all other forms of spite.
It's a song that reminds you that you are not alone, that Jesus got your back and you are full of Him.


ANNE: Who is/are your favourite spoken word  or gospel Rap  inspiration at the moment? 

 OVA SKILLZ: My favorite Spoken Word Artiste presently is Pastor Judas Smith

ANNE: What's the big picture for you as a Gospel Rap artiste?

OVASKILLZ: The Big Picture is JESUS PREACHED! I see Jesus being preached everywhere via Rap, I see nations calling us to reveal Jesus to them though Rap, We take over and we keep reigning forever.

ANNE: Glory!!!
What are your final words to your audience, please‎?

OVA SKILLZ:  You all should KNOW JESUS for yourself. Don’t just rely on other people’s knowledge about JESUS. ENCOUNTER JESUS and enjoy Christianity.


ANNE: Awesome! Thanks a lot Ovaskillz. We honour you for being YOUNG AND RELEVANT. Keep inspiring young people to embrace LIFE/JESUS!

OVASKILLZ: (Smiles) Thank you so much ma

WHY DO “LOOSE” GIRLS MARRY FASTER?

“If this life has anything to gain at all, I’ll count it lost if I can’t hear you feel you, cause I need you…” rang my amazing ringtone by Lecrae. I picked up the sleek darling to see who misses me. It was this pretty friend of mine.
Ada (Not real name) and I met at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in our first year. We had a lot in common and she was just my type (whatever that means) LOL. Anyway, I was (and still am) literally and figuratively in love with God and I noticed her heart was committed to God and His standards too.
Well, we graduated four years later and you know how life happens. We haven’t really kept in touch for a while. I heard sometime back that she was engaged and I called to say congratulations.  We talked about how life had been since after school and how we both are still fervently loving and serving the Lord. She said her wedding was three months away and I told her I definitely needed the aso-ebi (A uniform material sold to people who wish to attend an event).

HOW TO AWAKEN YOUR PROPHETIC ABILITY

If you are female and sense prophetic gifts on your life?
Here is a bible based, Christ Centered institution to help you develop and effectively use your prophetic gifts.
In simple terms, Prophecy can be defined as hearing the voice of God and speaking what He says. 
This gift is basically experienced in two ways. Auditory- Where  the one receiving the message hears words, which they then repeat or release  to those to whom one is sent.

Visual- This is referred to as The SEER gifting. Here, the receiver sees a message through some type of picture, which they then release or speak about as led.
These pictures are either received while awake by means of visions, while asleep through dreams or while half awake in trances.
Most prophetic people will experience both aspects at various times, but they tend to have one that is more dominant or frequent.
Can you relate with any of the above?

When I was younger, I had a wish. I wished that I could move from street to street selling to anyone who cared to buy.
I admired people who moved about carrying their wares on their heads because I felt they had the privilege of sightseeing and freedom of movement. 
The only chance I got to see places was when we were in the car on our way to church or school. 
The other times were when we occasionally visited Amusement Park or stopped by the then famous Mr. Biggs for lunch. This was in the 90’s. I soon got bored from seeing the same routes and sights.

I wished for more sightseeing opportunities and freedom of movement. I thought the only way I could get those was to be like the other children or adults who hawked their wares.
One day, my wish came to be! 
My mum came across bananas sold unbelievably cheap. She bought a lot and decided to sell some of…
