Gospel reggae singer, Buchi

Gospel singer Buchi Atuonwu on Thursday celebrated 29 years of giving his life to Christ.

The 58-year-old shared his photo on Instagram with the caption: “On this day 29 years ago, I gave my life to Christ.”

“For I am confident of this very thing, that he who began his good work in me will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6,” another post read.

Buchi started his career as a disc jockey at a night club.

He gained admission to University of Lagos in 1983 to study English language and literary studies. He graduated with a BA and MA in 1986 and 1988 respectively. He took up an appointment with the university at the end of his program to lecture and run a PhD program.

Buchi remained a staff member of the Department of English of the university until he yielded to the higher calling to preach gospel of Jesus through writing and singing in the reggae music and poetry.

The Kaduna-born has released eight studio albums and 2 books.

He has four children, a boy and three girls.
