If you ask NK Maduforo what drives her she would not mention her singing ability from a young age or that she started writing songs in lower primary school. Her answer would not be experience gathered from years of performance with various church choirs and school choral groups or her stint as a choir mistress.
She would not mention her ability to own the stage or her fearless approach to ministering through songs. She would not tell you about her vocal range and her voice control. She would however tell you about her walk with the Lord since her teenage years and how hearing His ‘spoken’ voice clearly in her bedroom in those years shaped her future. She would reiterate the testimony that everything she was told by Him came to pass exactly as was described. This profound experience set the foundation for taking NK from a singer and songwriter writing and singing for pleasure to a minister whose sole purpose is to restore true worship.
Leading worship is something she thoroughly loves and she has this unique approach to singing hymns and worshipping with the lyrics. “I love hymns and spend loads of hours reading the lyrics in my hymn book and making up tunes for the less popular ones or new tunes for the well known ones,” NK says.
Little wonder her last EP , Rock My World, born out of her personal devotion and experience features a couple of hymns rewritten as upbeat songs; a testament to worship not being determined by the pace of the beat.
” At the end of the day, music is a form of worship and not the definition of worship”.
