Glowreeyah Braimah has been on another level in the Nigerian gospel scene in the last two years.

gw: Whew, you have had quite a busy year, haven’t you? Kindly bring us up to speed on what you’ve been up to in the past year.
GB: To the ultimate glory of God, I gratefully and humbly admit that grace has enabled it all in the past year. My album, ‘The Expression’ featuring ‘Miracle-Worker’ has been greatly received by people across the world.
My team and I have been privileged to serve in various capacities, even beyond music. It has given me immense joy to stand on revered platforms and to lead great and small gatherings of God’s people in worship.
