Unlike the usual little beginnings where artist are rarely announced by their debut singles but subsequent tracks, Steve thought it safe and wise to derail that orthodox path, and so for a start, he came all out with a hit single “You are great”.
This song was more like a 4.2 magnitude earthquake that swallowed the entire country.
Nigeria’s national anthem was probably under a huge threat of being replaced by a gospel track, because everywhere you traveled to and you have a pair of working ears and then the vicinity is not dominated by 18th century Buddhist and monks, there’s a 99% chance you’ll hear the track gracing your ears.
So it was safe to say that at the time, if you can affirm that you never heard of the song, it’s either you were recently delivered of deafness or you were left in year 2000 and you recently just arrived in 2018.
Yea, the song was that rampant and viral.
Steve became a celebrated gospel singer after “you’re great” and birthed more gospel songs resulting to wide acclaims and positive appraisals.
