According to her, Afia Sika had learned a lot from them so she could easily replace one of them if the need arises.
“For example if one of us cannot be available at an event, Afia Sika will be a perfect fit to do the work. She has been with the group for 15 years and can confidently sing all our songs. We have no regret signing her because she has paid her dues,” she told Graphic Showbiz.
Afia Sika, who said she was happy to be signed by Daughters of Glorious Jesus indicated that it was a privilege and a dream come true to be mentored and signed by such seasoned Gospel musicians.
