Nigerian gospel soul singer Shola Allyson is blessed with a voice that has turned many to Christ.
The ever-smiling songstress in a chat with Saturday Beat said her childhood was rough because she grew up without her parents.
“I grew up in different places and Ikorodu is just one of the those places. Most of my experiences are fading off now. I only remember clearly the absence of my parents and the struggles a little child should not have experienced that I had. Of course, I grew up and became mature quickly.

She further said:
“I do not think out my songs, I receive them from the Holy Spirit. I am a vessel through which God speaks and when I receive his message, I deliver them through my songs” .
