Chris Okotie

 “Nigeria has produced many great singers who promoted  the culture of the band, among them were Mikel Okri, Feladay and Chris  Okotie who is now a Pastor. He (Chris Okotie) was doing it live at that  time but what he did at that time was not right. He had all the  opportunity to help the young generation because he was the shining  light but he killed the essence of it by his Flamboyance to the excess  and his not wanting to listen to those  who were tele-guiding his  growth. Let these young ones not fall prey to that, is what we are  saying”.
