Celebrated Nigerian gospel singer Buchi Atuonwu revealed details in how his house in Lagos was gutted by fire. The renowned gospel artiste said it was a test of faith.
In an interview with Punch, Buchi disclosed how his house and studio in the Ogba area of Lagos State was destroyed by fire some months ago.
“When I lost my studio and a part of my house to fire last year, I was performing on stage in Warri. I had to cut the trip short and returned to Lagos. It was so bad that I had to live in a hotel with my family for a while. So you see, I did not only lose personal belongings and equipment, all of which ran into several millions of naira; I was temporary rendered homeless by the fire incident.”

Buchi claimed that the fire consumed all his property except his bible.
No incident has ever tested my faith in God as much as that particular incident Everything got burnt inside the studio, except a copy of the Holy Bible. When such a challenge comes up, somehow you may want to pack it up and go in another direction. At a point, I was tempted to call it quits, but I didn’t.
