There were many popular Gospel songs in the 1980s! Some of the most well-known include “Total Praise” by Richard Smallwood, “I Will Call Upon the Lord” by Kurt Carr, “We Fall Down” by Donnie McClurkin, and “El Shaddai” by Amy Grant. These songs were often sung in churches and at religious events, and they were well-loved by people all over the world. They also paved the way for the next generation of Gospel singers, who continued to create popular songs throughout the 1990s and beyond.

The history of Gospel songs in Nigeria is quite fascinating. The first Gospel songs in Nigeria were introduced by Christian missionaries in the 19th century. These missionaries brought hymns and choruses from Europe and the United States, which were translated into local languages. Over time, Nigerian musicians began to create their own unique style of Gospel music, combining traditional Nigerian sounds with Western influences. One of the most important figures in the history of Gospel music in Nigeria was Ebenezer Obey.

One of the most interesting aspects of the history of Gospel music in Nigeria is the way it has been used as a tool for social change.

Many Gospel musicians have used their music to address issues such as poverty, corruption, and discrimination. For example, the Nigerian Gospel musician Panam Percy Paul has used his music to advocate for the rights of women and children. He has also used his music to raise awareness about the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Nigeria. Does that sound like something you want to learn more about?
