In Jos she also obtained a Diploma in Mass Communication from the University of Jos.
After her brother’s tragic demise, she moved back to Abuja in 2004 and started work at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport VIP lounge. In Abuja she was also backing up for most artistes at various studios.
In 2009 she moved to Owerri to further her education at the Imo State University Owerri, where she obtained a Bachelors degree in Mass Communication in 2012.

Eberry officially launched her musical career on the 19th of September 2019 at the Tongues of Fire Concert, a live recording concert held in Owerri featuring the Tongues of Fire Crew and PV Idemudia.

A wife and a mother of one, Eberry is a worship minister whose music strongly reflects her belief in Jesus and wants to lead people to know and fall in love with the personality of the Holy Spirit.
In a life full of uncertainties and chaos, it is obvious that a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit in His fullness is needed, to equip us with the strength that we need in these last days.
God wants to raise giants who will reveal Him to mankind, but first He wants men and women who will have a relationship with Him.
The new single by Eberry titled – ”My Lover” is one of such songs that will make you fall in love with the Holy Ghost again. Inspired by Songs of Solomon 1:4 msg,
‘‘The Holy Spirit is seen as a lover to elope with, to celebrate with and to sing with. One in whom your heart is secure with. He will not break your heart.”
My Lover was released 27th May 2020
