His song, STEP UP was written by the prolific songwriter himself and was featured as the theme song for the Christian Fellowship International annual convention, JAM SUMMIT held at Ibom Hall, Uyo in 2018. The song, a.k.a DAKKADA, is a clarion call to all and sundry to rise from the fears of failure to the the faith of greatness and success.
