My name is Timi Phoenix, I am a Contemporary Gospel artist based in Lagos Nigeria. Starting out in 2011, I have remained dedicated to releasing excellent contents that have included five albums, several singles and a catalogue of captivating visuals[videos] to further propagate the gospel. I have also collaborated with an array of gospel artistes contributing to projects in various capacities; from songwriting to singing, and performing at gospel shows. My commitment to contributing a quota in establishing gospel music as a valuable genre for this generation and beyond has remained a driving force. After My first introduction to the Near Protocol in June 2022, I saw a vision of an all-encompassing Decentralized digital platform that will yield an explosive growth. This vision is what led to the decision to execute a debut project under the NxM DAO. and in recent time work on other project in the Blaqk-Stereo DAO Near Tribe and more
