Also, Mama is not the sole-composer of all their songs because they have a group and the choir has released 25 albums. Whenever they want to record a song in the studio, prior to that time, each one of them will have to pray and do personal Bible study then come back with what the Holy Spirit ministers to them during that period. That is why their songs are mostly based on the word of God.
Mama confirmed that many of their songs have healed people who sang them with faith.
Sweet sixteen added that she decided to make Igbo and Hausa versions of their iconic song, Odun Nlo Sopin, because it should not be limited to Yoruba language alone. The song now has Igbo and Hausa version and it was released on September 19, 2020.
