Popular afro juju musician, Sir Shina Peters, has been ordained as a bishop of a Cherubim and Seraphim Church.
He was ordained at a ceremony in the Iju area of Lagos.
The 62-year-old musician took to his Instagram account where he posted a video of him collecting his certificate of consecration.
In the caption section of the video, SSP, wrote, “Bishop with the swagger. God above all.”
In another post on his Facebook account, the singer wrote, “To God be the glory. I will serve my God till the end.”
On what has kept in going in the music industry, the Afro Juju maestro said, “I give all the glory to God for good health and a sound mind. Sometimes, when I reflect on my humble beginning, I always praise God for the journey so far.”
He said he had no regrets whatsoever in life because he learnt to trust God in his church, the C&S which where he was born.
He said, “Due to my faith in the Lord and belief in the founder of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, St. Moses Orimolade, and the church where we always put our trust in God and look up to Him for things. I have no regrets. I have also enjoyed God’s abundant grace. Hence, it is difficult for me to have regrets in life.”
On which of his songs surprised him in terms of popularity and commercial success, the juju artiste explained, “My story is a peculiar one. After my partnership with Segun Adewale ended, I started my solo career with high hopes and determination. But after few releases without the expected impact, I made up my mind that if the album, ACE, did not bring me fame and fortune; maybe, I would consider something else. “I, therefore, carried out deep research to find out what the other genres of music had that made their audiences addicted to them. I picked Afro feelings from Abami eda, Fela Anikulapo Kuti; got the Fuji percussion from the late Ayinde Barrister, then mixed it with the fast pitched heavy drumming and swings from the disco lovers and came out with what I called ‘Afro juju’. 30 years after, Ace is still a shocker and breaking records. Nothing prepared me for the success story of Ace. I thank God for the ability to produce many hits after Ace.”
