Soul Snatcha, a gospel singer and former member of Rooftop MCs, emphasized that Christians don’t believe they should pay for gospel music. His decision to relocate to the United Kingdom in 2011 was driven by a desire to maintain his relationship with God. He acknowledged that if he had remained in Nigeria, he might have achieved greater financial success but at the cost of his spiritual connection.

The Rooftop MCs, who gained fame in 2008 with their hit track “Lagimo,” experienced a period of obscurity. Soul Snatcha clarified that they didn’t break up; instead, they were guided by a divine directive to pursue individual musical paths.

He says Rooftop MCs still exists, but they no longer do music together. In 2010, his partner, Sokleva, received divine inspiration to leave the country and they found themselves individually, as directed by God. Their relationship is still strong, and they maintain regular contact.

Soul Snatcha also highlighted the challenges faced by gospel artists, including the lack of early support from the church and the misconception that gospel music should be free. He stressed the importance of recognizing that music production involves costs, and artists should be compensated for their work.
