Hoszia began his journey of singing Full-Time from 2006, he always loved to sing, but didn’t want to sing other people’s songs, he spent long evenings, creating and writing his own music to whatever was going on in his head.
Hoszia’s younger days were days of struggle and hardship, as he tried to maintain provision for his other 12 siblings, he grew up in some difficult times, which had easily entwined him to his former gangster lifestyle, and there were many negative influences that pushed him down the wrong pathway of life.
One day he got into a brutal altercation with another man causing him to be seriously harmed, fainting out unconsciously, when he awoke, he found himself with an almost severed hand, and tremendous blood lost in an operation room in a local hospital, while there in the room, a voice spoke to him, at first he thought it was a nurse, but after looking around in the room, he saw no one, and fell back in the bed, a few seconds later he heard the same voice, that said “Hoszia it is time to serve me the Living God,” when Hoszia regained strength he was startled at the fact that God spoke directly to him and he knew that this was the turning point for his life, he gave his Life completely to the Lord in 1996.
Although he felt he made the right choice and became a Christian, the environment around him tugged at his heart, he battled with the mind and the pleasures of this world, but he was determined to be a strong God-fearing Christian and willed himself to the things of God. He had a desire to do God’s work even though he was faced with poverty, he continued on his journey in pursuit of the King of Kings, to fulfill God’s purpose. He learnt to beat the odds and persevere through life challenges to become a victorious and successful singer.
