Maranda Curtis and Leeland are among the many artists who have covered Sinach’s megahit “Way Maker” over the years.
Riding on a wave of success
The new album comes after Sinach’s terrific 2020.
In March 2020, she was rewarded a gold plaque from YouTube for reaching more than one million subscribers on the video platform. She made history with the gold plaque, as she was the first Nigerian gospel artist to achieve such an award.
Sinach’s success on YouTube is also reflected in her song “Way Maker,” which has been played more than 171 million times and became a hit across Africa.
That song led to her breaking another record in the spring of 2020. Sinach topped Billboard’s Christian Songwriters chart for 10 consecutive weeks, and she was the first African person to do so.
The Billboard charts account for the online and physical sales, radio play and online streaming of songs released in the United States.
Since the release of “Way Maker,” several other Christian artists have covered “Way Maker,” and their streams and plays benefit Sinach on the chart because she wrote the song.
Among the artists are Michael W. Smith, Leeland and Maranda Curtis.
Among the most influential women
In 2020, Sinach also made it to Avance Media’s list of the 100 most influential African women for the first time.
The company behind it is based in Ghana and compiles the list from public nominations every year. The influential women are selected from 34 African countries and are considered to be leaders and role models in various fields.
Furthermore, Sinach triumphed at the GMA Dove Awards in October 2020 when she took home the award for Song of the Year. Also here, “Way Maker” paved the way.
Sinach took to Twitter to thank her mentor, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, after the victory:
“Thank you to my mentor and life coach Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Sir! And my LoveWorld family! You saw it before anyone else did. My team and staff across the globe always working so hard with me. I love you all! Africa, Nigeria this is for every dreamer! God is more than enough! We will always win in Christ,” she wrote.
