Coming from Nigerian gospel music sensation Fortune Ebel is a new single “Raise You High”, a hip-life tune with a Congolese feel; a song that will get you dancing while raising God high with your praise.
Fortune Ebel is a trained singer and he is into the Gospel music fulltime. He hails from Uzere in the Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State, Nigeria and he is the fifth child amongst seven children. He has been singing for well over a decade as a backup singer and this he did for many lead singers – the most recent being for the Ron Kenoly Brothers when they visited Nigeria in December, 2012.
Officially, he commenced his exclusive music ministry/career on Sunday, the 18th of March, 2012 and he leads a group of young, talented and willing personnel who make up the Team-Melody City (MC) & Kingdom Realm (KR) – both of which he was inspired to create.
MC is the Music Label while KR is the name of the Crew that minister directly on stage. They have sp far recorded few songs, some of which are currently on the MTN and GLO callers tune bouquet in Nigeria.
As a trained singer and lyricist, he describes the pattern of his music as “simply cosmopolitan”. He writes/composes new songs as well as sings the old ones because he believes that most of the old songs guide the writer who writes new ones to retain the message of the Gospel, while the new songs breathe renewal on the old ones.
He is a Gospel music singer who loves and has a great measure of respect for the plethora Gospel music ministers that are both in Nigeria and abroad and together with his team, he has a vision to add to the Universal Church, songs that shall become legacies for many generations to come.
