Nashville, TN, (April 20, 2022)
Born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, Chidiya Ohiagu grew up listening to a wide variety of music from pop to soul and R&B, Afro beat to classical and Gospel. Singing in choirs and listening to “boy bands” like Backstreet Boys, and Christian music groups like dcTalk made him fall in love with harmony, smooth vocals, and varied musical styles. He became a Christian at a young age and his faith in God is what fuels his music. Today, he lives in Mobile, Alabama and is blessed to be a singer/songwriter with his debut single released in December 2019 and debut EP in December 2020. Two singles have followed in 2021 “Messengers” first and “Amazed” after that. His latest song, “Already Blessed,” is the latest single, released in February 2022. His heart’s desire is to be a conduit for God to flow through and touch the world for His glory.
Story Behind the Song:
“I was inspired to write this song because too often we can focus on waiting to be blessed (e.g. a new job, car, house, relationship etc.), rather than becoming more aware of the blessings we already have in the gifts God gives us every day. I want this song to be a daily reminder that our blessings are not just in the future, but here and now, in every single moment of our present lives as followers in relationship with Christ. A reminder that God is with us, and His presence and the gift of salvation are more than enough blessing for us on any day. I hope that when you listen to this song you are filled with joy and gratitude to God for His many blessings.” —Chidiya Ohiagu
