After having teased her fans for weeks about the release of “Greatest Lord,” Sinach finally released her new single on Saturday, February 13th.
The song premiered with a music video on Sinach’s YouTube channel, where the song had already been played close to 70,000 times at the time of writing.
The five-minute-long song describes God’s mighty powers and how grateful Sinach is for Him.
“Greatest Lord” is Sinach’s first release in 2021, following “All Things Are Ready,” “Always Win” and “Peace in the Storm” from last year, which was an incredibly successful year for the Nigerian singer.
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 168 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.
Thanks her mentor, Pastor Chris
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.
“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.
Sinach started singing a little more than 30 years ago when she worked at and was a choir member in Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s Christ Embassy.
Later, she became a Christ Embassy worship leader and released her first album, “Chapter One” in 2008.
Since then, Sinach has released eight additional albums and won several awards, including two LIMA awards. She has also risen to fame across Africa, in the UK and the US.
