THE CHALLENGES SO FAR
Just like anybody else, mostly, there must be challenges faced by Music ministers, when we asked Mr. Bawa Joseph about the challenges he might have encountered so far, his response was “Well some may say that it is finance,, but i bet it differs cos my biggest challenge is acceptance because getting people to like and accept what you do is much more difficult than anything.”
ANY BREAKTHROUGH SO FAR?
Well, it has been an eventful decade for Bawa Joseph Benedict, but he made us understand that by the time you no longer struggle in the music scene, your level of acceptance should have attained a reasonable height, in his own words, when we asked him about his breakthrough so far, he had this to say to us “Gaskiya I am yet to have that breakthrough because by having a breakthrough, it means you no longer struggle to get your work accepted by a wider audience”. I am so humbled by his level of honesty.
