This month is exactly eight years since he gave his life to Christ and the Man of God says it’s been a very humbling experience for him.
“It hasn’t been easy, every week there is something new coming up. It has never been smooth but God has been with me and that makes it humbling,” he told Showbiz on Tuesday, October 16.
