“I had no Divine Encounter nor was I Preached to before I got Converted” – Josh Kashim

Sharing his testimony on how God has been so kind to him, the born-Muslim gospel artiste stated that he can testify that serving the lord pays so well based on what he has experienced.

Speaking on how he got converted to Christianity, Josh Kashim said that he had no divine encounter with God neither did anyone preached to him, but it has just been a childhood desire for him to be a Christian.

“It was just like I believe in myself that I was pre-ordained by God to be a Christian but will first of all be born in a Muslim home because when we were growing up, I was just like feeling jealous when I saw Christian children going to church and we were going to Islamic school and when I got to Islamic school, the teachings there, I don’t put interest into it. My mind is always in the church. So, as we were just growing up, immediately I left my father’s house and started staying on my own I just converted”

He further said that he got the name Josh Kashim from “Joshua” that God gave to him through his spiritual mother when he sought the face of the lord for a change of name.

In an interview session with dailyfamily.ng, the artiste shared how he started his music career and the type of gospel genre he does.

 Have you had that music instinct in you while you were with your parents as a Muslim?

Yes, those days when I was in Maiduguri, I was just only composing a kind of circular songs into Raga mophy but along the line, when I got converted, because I got converted when I left my paternal home and went to Maiduguri but I got to know the Lord wholeheartedly after my deportation from abroad and from then, I started seeing God’s mighty hands on me, so I just said let me go into gospel fully and as I decided to go into gospel fully, I began to have ministrations in the dreams of songs and in the dream.

Since you have started out as a gospel artiste, has there ever been a challenge that you faced?

Well, I will not really say there has been or there has not been, because by saying I want to get this thing to a level that people will know much about me, it has been a challenge and the other way round too, seeing the way things are working out, I’m seeing it as a challenge that is being solved by God Himself and not by me.

So, what has been the motivating factor despite the challenge?

The motivating factor is the word of God, anytime I read the word of God, I get revived in the spirit and from the word of God, I get my songs because, at times, I will just be reading the word of God and may be meditating, all of a sudden, I’ll just get a ministration that I can sing what I’ve just read and I’ll just begin to hum it in my heart before you know it, I’m forming a music, so the word of God is just the ultimate.

What kind of style do you sing as a Gospel Artiste?

I love reggae songs so much, then when I was like composing circular songs, it was just raga mofi; reggae kind of Jamaica style because I just love reggae. If I will have any other thing outside reggae, it might just be just one or two.
