DSP Peter Atam is a rising gospel artiste, model and preacher. The coordinator of The Disciples Family has averred that most gospel artistes forget too soon how they began.
Speaking in a chat with TheNewsGuru, he said: Most gospel ministers and artistes I believe forget too easily how they began. They allow the business of music, the fame and glory of this world to distract their main focus from their first love. By these, they become distant from God’s word, prayer, evangelism and the core basics of their faith”.
On how his music journey began, he said:” I started music really early in life. I was like the star in my secondary school (FGC Ikom) during my time. But after school, I left singing for a while but I still ventured into learning the piano and drums which I still play now. And yes, I also put music on hold because I couldn’t raise enough funds or find sponsors that will support with the funds to pursue it adequately”.
Sharing the lessons he has learnt over the years as a minister, he said: “Over the years I have learnt that humility pays. Prayer, study of God’s word and love for God’s people are fundamental to always releasing the supernatural. It is also very important to note that, one cannot give what one does not have. So the life of the minister must mirror the God they preach, this also positions the minister for greater impact during their ministrations”.
Shedding more light on the group’s EP titled ‘The Glory’, he said:” The Glory EP is 8 years in the making. A part of my music diversity is showcased in this EP which will allows people with different tastes of music to find this particular work a really interesting, engaging, uplifting and spiritual experience while listening to this EP.
