A Deep Dive into Divine Worship and the Power of Music as an Offering by Chidi Collins.
In the broad landscape that is spiritual music, there is often at least one track that rises above its words and its melody to become an anthem of unadulterated praise.
Chidi Collins considers his song “Ancient of Days” to be that very anthem; it is a hymn that is sung with unmatched devotion while standing at the very footprints of divinity.
Chidi’s spirit always appeared to be moving to some kind of heavenly beat, even when he was very little.
His musical adventure started long before most people could even understand the language of melodies since he was born with the harmonies of the skies caressing his lips. He was a genius.
A heavenly flame lit inside him at the formative age of 15, marking the beginning of a lifetime mission: to guide people closer to the embrace of God via the ethereal power of music.
Chidi has become a prominent figure in the world of gospel music not just as a result of his extraordinary academic accomplishments at Abia State University, where he studied law, but also as a result of his dogged commitment to the field.
He is more than simply a musician; for many, he serves as a directing force, a mentor, and a lighthouse, shedding light on the way to worship in a sincere manner.
The extent of his achievements can only begin to be comprehended when one considers his positions as a music director, school founder, composer, and author.
Chidi does not see music as solely an aesthetic medium; rather, he views it as a religious responsibility. Each and every note that he composes and sings is infused with the gravity of this sacred obligation. It is complete and wholehearted giving up, diving headfirst into the regions of unshakeable trust.
His most recent work, titled “Ancient of Days,” serves as a demonstration of his commitment to his craft. This song is a mesmerising combination of Chidi’s calming voice and the harmonising echoes of his backing choir.
It was inspired by the diverse musical traditions of Nigeria. Together, they create an atmosphere of respect, a place in which listeners might forget themselves and discover grace from on high.
In the realm of gospel music, “Ancient of Days” is not just another song among many others. It is an adventure, a spiritual path that leads one into the very centre of worship, and it is an experience.
The world is waiting with keen expectation for the next glorious chapter as Chidi Collins continues to bless us with his heavenly tunes.
