Famously known for his smash hit ‘”Amaghimo”, Patrick ‘Password’ Mathias isn’t only a singer, he also doubles as a songwriter and music producer and hails from Cross River state – NIGERIA.
Following the release of ‘Selah’ and ‘Uwese’, fans still are stuck on Amaghimo and cannot get enough of it. In a chat, the singer disclosed that at the time he wrote ‘Amaghimo’, things around him were ‘unpleasant and challenging’but he had ‘enough light to thank God’.
Password who was in the mainstream industry for some time and still collaborates with mainstream artistes strictly as a music producer revealed how he balances his music and personal life in these words:
‘As Christians, we must live a deliberate life as we are the salt of the earth. We can mingle but not join them. We are to influence their mindset and sound with the kingdom of God’.
Hinting on the misconception of most gospel artistes that music is strictly ministry, he has this to say:
‘A lot has to be taught to music ministers especially the business of making music that isn’t mediocre. These artistes lack access to information. By default, we are to be excellent just like our father’.
The ‘Uwese’ crooner also hints that the ministry of music is to reach out to the lost, however, not turning a blind eye to the business side to it- getting streams on music platforms.
He disclosed a music project that is work-in-progress (which he describes as timely) with one of the industry’s finest, Ada Ehi Moses. In his words, ‘it’s a response to the ‘fiasco’ instigated by the enemy as Christ has the victory’.
Password revealed that he has something cooking in the studio: an album. And hinted the feature of seasoned gospel artistes which he didn’t reveal as he didn’t want to let the cat out of the bag too soon.
In response to whether or not ‘Amaghimo’ features on the album, he said:’let’s keep our fingers crossed’.
