Electrical Engineer, gospel artiste
Sold out to Gospel music
Godswill Bright Asonye is a young and upcoming music artiste from Abia state born into the family of HRH Prince, Chief & Lolo Bright Asonye.
He started writing songs while in secondary school, while trying to decide which should come first: his love for music or enrolling in the military.
After school music took control and the military career was pushed to the back burner.
Since then he has been working hard to make his gospel music career a success.
He has an upcoming debut album he is putting finishing touches to before releasing it into the market for his fans by first quarter of 2016. To make this a reality he shuttles between Lagos, the entertain hub of Nigeria where he promotes the upcoming album, and Port-Harcourt where he does his studio sessions.
He loves God, church and religious activities. Also, he enjoys going into stuff/projects that are uplifting and add meaning to his life.

Q-Philosophy in life?
A-Being honest and truthful is the basis for being trusted
A-My role models locally are Frank Edwards and my elder brother Bensong who is also into gospel music, globally I have Lucky Dube.
Q-Your challenges in the industry/profession?
A-I know that being a successful artist is hard work and a huge responsibility. Nothing good comes so easily, but the entertainment is very harsh for the up and coming artist: studios are becoming so expensive, radio stations are difficult to get to play your songs and we haven’t mentioned the high cost of shooting a decent music video.
Q-Advice to upcoming talents?
A-My advice to upcoming talents is to understand IT, being that thing you discovered you are good at and make it your strength by investing in its development everyday.
Its only then that you will grow and it becomes a passion that drives you, makes you happy when you are down and gives you relief from the challenges of life.
Q-What the future holds/new plans?
A-My album ‘Glorify’ is not yet in the market, but I am doing the promotions for it so we can launch it by the first quarter of 2016.
