Multiple award-winning gospel artist and songwriter, Sinach has become the first African and arguably the first black person to rank at number one on the Christian Songwriters’ category of the USA Billboard, for her song “Way Maker“.
The songwriter, according to the data released in May, has dominated the chart for the past seven weeks. globally, various versions of the song have been streamed over 250 million times life-to-date on YouTube. On Spotify, top versions of the song now account for over 54 million streams life-to-date.
“In short Sinach has accumulated the most points out of any other Christian market songwriter for the past seven weeks. My analysis is that the large number of recorded versions of the song Waymaker are adding up to this accomplishment and acknowledgment. The other songwriters on this list have dozens of different songs recorded by other artists that are comprising their “points total,” said Les Moir, A&R Ambassador at Integrity Music Europe. Sinach who took to her Facebook to make the announcement expressed her gratitude to God, while also revealing that this is the first time a black from Africa is toping the list.
“So apparently We have been No 1 on billboard USA for Christian song writer for 7 weeks !! Look at God!! First Black Person…”
Married to Joseph Egbu, this talented singer is a key member of LoveWorld music team of Christ Embassy, and knows that gospel music is not for commercial purposes but to help promote the gospel of Christ and lift up the spirit of the hopeless.
