About Of Nathaniel Bassey (Biography) Net Worth, Songs, Family

Nathaniel Bassey is from Ikot Ofon Ikono, Uyo local government area in Akwa-Ibom state, South-South Nigeria.
His father, Mr E Joshua t:Bassey, was a minister in The Apostolic Church Bashua Assembly and from an early age he developed a love for both music and the gospel.
He was inspired when He saw Dr Panam Percy Paul,
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 jazz music and began listening, imitating
and playing to the music of Louis Armstrong, Miles Davies, Clifford
Brown, Charlie Parker, Stan Getz and Kirk Whalum, Phil Driscoll, Hugh
Masakela and other Jazz luminaries. His zeal for the Jazz form would
later stir him to seek out bands and groups along the Jazz lines. He
then joined a top jazz quartet in Lagos, Spectrum 4, where he played
alongside his childhood friends.


About that time Nat, as he is fondly
called, was approached by one of the most respectable figures in the
Nigerian jazz and music circle, Elder Steve Rhodes to lead, arguably,
the first Jazz Orchestra in the country – THE STEVE RHODES ORCHESTRA. He
served as band leader and lead trumpet player for a period of two years
and later moved on with his music career. His peculiar and particularly
soulful trumpet playing style caught the ears of top Artistes and
composers within and outside the country. Teemac, Ayo Bankole Jr,
Cobhams Asuquo, Wole Oni, Yinka Davies, Adlan Cruise, Funsho Ogundipe,
Peter King, Sotiris Papadopoulus, Paul Petersen, The French Cultural
centre, American International School, are but a few individuals and
organizations that have sought his musical ingenuity.

As time passed, Nathaniel 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 Mentorship and guidance of Late Pastor Eskor Mfon, the former Pastor of The Redeemed Christian Church Of God,
City Of David Parish. 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 at a local church. 
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
Nathaniel, the main thrust was WORSHIP – Music of heaven – one that
ministered exclusively to the Lord and an avenue through which HE
related with His people. His trumpet playing coupled with a calm singing
style has since ushered many in concerts, crusades and churches into
the presence of the LORD.


Nathaniel, a graduate of Politics and
International Relations at the University of London, also serves as the
director of music at the t:RCCG;
The King’s Court. He has attended music courses in and out of the
country including the Middlesex University Summer School UK, where he
studied popular music and music business. He writes, sings and produces
his own music and records with diverse groups of musicians.
Nathaniel’s debut album Elohim was
recorded and mixed in Cape Town, South Africa in the year 2008. It has
been described as a spiritual and Artistic masterpiece with the hit
track “Someone’s knocking at the door” a soft-rock tune currently
generating so much interest locally and internationally.
