Pastor Victor Okereke’s Profile (DE EDIFIER) Victor Okereke was born in Oyigbo, Nigeria. He is from Okpala, Ngor Okpala local government area in Imo state, South-east Nigeria. His father, Mr Chima Franklin Okereke and his mother Mrs Grace Ihuoma Okereke. He is the second in the family of six children. He was inspired when He saw Bro Cornelius Benjamin, a prominent Nigerian gospel music icon in concert over twenty years ago and since then, His passion for music has grown and translated into various musical experiences. In his early years, he developed a rather uncommon interest for music (worship and ariaria)and began listening, imitating and playing to the music of Cornelius Benjamin and others. Joined a group in oyigbo as to develop himself. About that time Victor, as he is fondly called, was approached by one of the most respectable figures in the music circle, Uche Ibezim, who took him and trained in music. As time passed, Victor began sensing a deep yearning within. There was more to his music than he thought. He later took time off his numerous mainstream commitments to seek the Lord under the Mentor-ship and guidance of Uche Ibezim This decision attracted fierce criticisms from friends, Artistes and colleagues who thought it unthinkable abandoning what was becoming a thriving mainstream music career to serve exclusively. As he developed an intimate fellowship with the Holy Spirit, He then realized that music was more than an item to fill a space in time but was a fundamental tool in the praise and worship of the Lord. Soon after, a music ministry was born and for Victor,the main thrust was WORSHIP – Munath-Trust in the Lord with all your heart – one that ministered exclusively to the Lord and an avenue through which HE related with His people. His keyboard playing coupled with a calm singing style has since ushered many in concerts, crusades and churches into the presence of the LORD. Victor, a graduate of Electrical Electronics Engineering at the Federal Polytechnic Nekede Owerri Imo State, also had served as a music director in so many places. He writes, sings with diverse groups of musicians
