Now get your zobo and minimi chin chin let’s get into it
Congratulations on your first song, Wonderful. Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect when you shared the link to the song. But after downloading and listening, it’s now one of my favorite songs on Audio Mack. Indeed our God is wonderful and marvellous.
So, I want to ask, what inspires you to do music?
Wonderful is not my first song but it’s the first song I’m promoting. I did my first song “I call you” in 2018. First, I will say it’s the Holy Spirit that inspired me to do music. I also get inspirations during my prayer times and from things that happen around me. I love music so much. I want people to keep their hopes alive.
Oh! I didn’t know you did a song before Wonderful. Meanwhile, how would you describe the music that you create?
The music I create is quite inspiring and soul-lifting. It will motivate people to draw closer to God and worship Him wholeheartedly.
What project are you working on currently?
I’m working on my next single already. It will be released in the first quarter of this year, God willing.

I have a few persons in mind depending on the song to be released.
If you could open a gospel concert for any artist, who would it be?

What is the most useless talent you have?
I write very fast.
That’s not useless. You can use it to win Twitter argument if you convert it to typing very fast. Lols
What do you do apart from music?
I teach in a school. I also do other petty businesses.
Do you have any upcoming event?
Yes, I do. I post updates about my events and ministrations on my social media platforms. You should follow me and stay updated.

In the next five years, I see Hannah Richards becoming an international brand with impactful songs that will cut across the globe and that will inspire and affect people positively.
