Twist Online : First of all, please introduce yourself to our readers?
Jovi Say So :​
I’m Ejovi Obus popularly known as Jovi Obus. I’m a 6 ft tall Nigerian. Born and raised in Warri, Delta State, Nigeria. I’m a Music Minister, Youth Leader and Entrepreneur.Husband to Marquita Logan-Obus and father to Oghoghome Mika and Ogheneruona Mercy Ejovi-Obus. I’m a christian, believer of Jesus Christ and the Trinity. I’m on a mission to let the whole world know God and His Mighty power, through music, fashion and community service.Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into the music industry?Jovi Say So : ​Actually I wasn’t inspired into the music industry, I am called into the music ministry.But, I have people that inspire me in the music ministry/industry some of them are; Sonnie Badu,Tye Tribett, Tim Godfrey, Dee Jones, JJ Hairston and some others too numerous to mention.

Twist Online : You are releasing your first Ep. You must be excited about it?
Jovi Say So :
​I’m so hyped about it and I can’t wait for it to drop. It’s a 5 song E.P that simply tells of my grateful heart towards God, singing of how beautiful He is and making super natural declarations over the people. I believe it will bless and encourage people and most importantly bring glory to God. For without him I’m nothing.

Twist Online : What was the main goal behind becoming a gospel artist?
Jovi Say So :
​Like I said earlier it was not my will to be a gospel artist. I swear if I was told 7 years ago that I will be doing this, I will not have believed one beat because I had my life planned out coming to the United States. But God interrupted my plans and gave me a vision to deliver to this generation and the next and I’m not regretting yielding myself to God to use me as he wants to. However, the main goal is to push the young and the old to a place in their walk with Christ,where they are able to embrace their calling in God to be able to fulfill destiny. This is because a man who does not know his/her purpose in life is just existing and not living and we all want to live life because God asks us in His word to choose life and live more abundantly.

Twist Online : What attracts you more, Working in studios or performing on stage?
Jovi Say So :
​I will say performing on stage attracts me more because I’m an extrovert. Because I’ve been called to lead people to praise and worship God, I love doing it on stage. Be it a big or small audience. I just love when me and the people I lead vibe together. It’s always a great feeling and anytime I have the opportunity to lead people, it’s always a vibe.

Twist Online : What’s the best part of being a music artist?
Jovi Say So : ​
The best part of being a music artist for me it’s being able to inspire people positively.In the world we live in right now, a vast majority of people with influence in the society,influence the young ones negatively and sorry to say, in this day and time the media only show us the negativity. But by God’s grace I’m that light through Jesus that is shining to show the positive path to this generation and the next.

Twist Online : Have you set any goals to achieve?
Jovi Say So :
​Yes, actually doing this interview is a goal that has been achieved. My goal is to spread this message like the corona virus lol. And it starts with one and before you know it, it’s everywhere.

Twist Online : Anything else you would like to share with our readers?
Jovi Say So :
​Lastly, I want to use this opportunity to speak to everyone reading this that no matter what they are going through, there is always hope and that hope is in Jesus Christ the savior of this world. The one who picked me up and set my feet on a rock and now I’m a living testimony of his power. And never forget the overall message is for you to embrace your calling because it’s in the call that life begins to make sense.
