- Sammy Sas Please can we meet you?
- Moses Akoh My name is Moses Akoh Oche. I am from Benue state, Nigeria. I am studying in the Philippine, taking up Human Resources Development Management. I am in my final year
- Sammy Sas Interesting… So when did you realized you had a passion for music?
- Moses Akoh I was 14 years old when God gave me the gift of singing. I went for a Teenagers Camp and I asked God for a gift and He he gave me the passion for music, but it remained a passion until I put in the hard work of making my passion to become excellent. And I am still on that path of constant searching for excellence.
- Sammy Sas What type of music do you do?
- Moses Akoh Rnb, Pop, Hip hop, Jazz, Rock and Soul.
- Sammy Sas Nice… So you do the secular type of music?
- Moses Akoh My Faith in The Gospel of Jesus places a limit to what I sing, because Everything that comes out of me must give Him Glory, therefore, I am very selective about secular songs. I believe singing a love song about a woman is permissible, however When it starts to degrade her and make her a sexual object, then the I me, has been crossed for me. So my answer to your question is I have limits to the secular songs I can do.
- Sammy Sas Why so much passion for the Gospel industry, when the secular musicians are making global headings and getting most of the mega contracts?
- Moses Akoh Because I believe in Jesus and His Gospel. What does it profit anyone to gain the while world and loose his soul? The Grammy’s and all that don’t matter. People with all those awards have all the power and fame, but are empty and we commit suicide. I’d rather hold on to the Gospel of Jesus that lasts forever than sign mega contracts and still loose my soul. Jesus is all that matter. It doesn’t have to be the same with everybody, but it is the path I have chosen.
- Sammy Sas So tell us about the few major achievement you have enjoyed, since the inception of your career till date?
- Moses Akoh Most of my achievements have been here in the Philippines. Nigeria have me only a few opportunities, but the Philippines gave me more than I expected, and now I am known all over the country, because of my various TV appearances and MTV Asia guesting.
- Some of my achievements and things I do are
- AbsCbn’s ILoveOpm Finalist,
- Session Back up singer for OPM(Original Filipino Music) Artists,
- Worship Team Trainer and Music Clinician,
