Nigerian gospel artist, Osinachi Okoro, popularly known as Sinach, has become the first African to top the Billboard Christian Songwriters Chart.

Her song ‘Waymaker,’ originally released in 2016, recently gained massive popularity following performances by The Elevation Worship and other Christian rock bands.

But it was Leeland’s Waymaker (Live) that shot the song into Billboard Top 10 hits. Another version of the song by Michael W. Smith featuring Vanessa Campagna and Madelyn Berry also lit up the charts.

Sinach took to Twitter on Wednesday to share the good news.

 

She also expressed gratitude to God, for being the first black person and first African to achieve this.

Other songwriters on the list are Jason Ingram, Matthew West, Lauren Daigle, Chris Brown, Steven Furtick, Jeff Pardo, Paul Mabury, Hank Bentley, and Ethan Hulse.

The lockdown measures across the world occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic have forced churches and worshippers to move their activities online.
