Nigerian gospel music artiste, Favour Ndukwe, currently based in Brazil is making the country proud in the South American country teaching African way of life, particularly dance, dressing and language, informed Nigerian Lagos-based newspaper This Time.
“Ndukwe, who released her first album, ‘Beautiful God’ in 2010, has a unique African background which was first recognised by a Brazilian Government school, Escola de Prefeture, Emef Vereadora Anna Lambetge Zeglio, Sao Paulo, where she was invited to teach the students cultural music with African themes and everything about Africa”.
Discussing her attachment to her African root, Ndukwe said: “I have been away from Nigeria for about five years, though I truly miss home and I know my fans miss me too. I miss you all so much. My interest in the peace in Africa and especially in Nigeria, remembering we are the mother of Africa, has sustained my resolve to be a cultural ambassador for the continent.”
Presently in talks with other schools in Brazil and other countries, the Abia State-born musician is working on a new album, ‘Big Big God’, and she is fine tuning her plan for a world tour next year.
“Music has been a lovely friend to me, and so, wherever I go in the world, music speaks for me. I love music and the African culture. I am particularly grateful to my fans in Nigeria, South Africa and around the world for making me big today,” she said.
