At the age of 15, many of us barely know
what we’re going to become in the future - but luckily for musician J Something
– a prophet gave him an idea on what he should become.
Taking to Instagram to reflect on that
fateful day, the Micasa singer revealed how a prophet, upon his first visit to
church, told him to start playing a
guitar he last used at the age of 11 because God wanted to use him in the music
“As I sat one day in church, 15 years old,
a prophet picked me out of a crowd of a couple 100 people. She called me up and
told me she had a msg for me from God [sic].” He wrote.
“Now what you gotta understand is that this
was my first time ever going to church. So I was freaked out and slightly
pissed off cause this lady was embarrassing me in front of all the girls from
VG. Any way ... she went on to tell me that (without knowing me from bar of my
soap my friends) God was showing her a musician. She asked me if i played
music. I then thought she had gotten the wrong dude and this msg was for
somebody else ... but then she dug and pulled out a memory that reminded me I
had played guitar when I was eleven for like 6 months. She then told me that
God wants me to pick up guitar again because he is going to use me in the music
industry!,” he added.
Although the musician says he had planned on
becoming a sportsman at the time, he explained how he chose to obey the
prophet’s message and asked his mother to get him a guitar.
“I wanted to be a sportsman. But I went
home, slightly freaked out that God had sent a msg for me and it made no sense
but still I wanted to obey. Called my mother up, told her, “mae, God says I
need a guitar.” A few months later, after my mom had saved up enough money she
went and bought me a guitar. I look back at that,” he recalled.
And while most of us would think receiving
such a message would make for an easier journey, J Something revealed in a past
post how he’s had
to clean music studios for other musicians before becoming one.
But today the singer’s band has won several
awards and it’s safe to say he is living out the prophecy.
