We get lots of email claiming to be from Nigeria, but this is one of the few we've gotten that wasn't spam:
I am a Nigerian and found out about your band late last year on an internet radio (leadmetotherock radio) and searched for the song "One Way" on YouTube to listen again.We sent John some links for a bunch of free album downloads. Thanks to all of you who give to us so we are able to give music to others who cannot afford it.
I will like to download them but the PayPal gateway doesn't receive payment from Nigeria.
I only listen to your music on YouTube for now, which I can't download. Please -- I would have loved to make a donation or pay if I could afford your albums. I very much would like to get your music but no way yet now. Please can you kindly help me?
I love ranges of genre, just creativeness, truth and meaning being passed through the lyrics is what I think I am usually after. For now I can't say I have a favourite genre as when I listen to different musics, The creativity, truth and meaning they pass through is mainly what makes me overwhelmed.
Also kinda come to like your songs mainly cos I have being trying to stop listening to "secular musics" which you have resang in your parodies.
I have quite a lot of favourites in your albums..Ephesians, Ain't Been Nothing Yet, Corinthians, Receiver, Kick in the Wall -- a lot of them still, seriously.
I was born into a Christian family and usually pray the normal forgiveness prayer of sobriety and "wanting to change" but I really never took a personal rededication until 2007 when I prayed for God's forgiveness afresh and since then, I thank God for his Grace, Word and Spirit, though at times … hmm.
But I am growing by His grace. That I am very sure of. Thanks and keep up the good work.
