HOW I GOT SAVED: My Life. My Story. My Testimony- Aidepha Macrae (Geeblex)


Pls don’t scroll over this like it’s a Microsoft agreement, you’ll be blessed! Hi. My name is Aidepha Macrae, I’m a part-time gospel music artiste and a full-time Missionary. THE PAST I started music when I was about 13 years old back in college in 2008, not yet recording but writing. I wrote a couple of secular songs which I never recorded but hoping to when I’m done with High School. I couldn’t sing gospel songs or play Kirk Franklin in public because people would label me a “Devout Christ-ian”, matter of fact, I was ashamed of the Gospel. I wouldn’t think that my lyrics were “hot” if the “F-Word” isn’t a part of it. I got stuck in the quicksand of juvenile lifestyle, followed the bad boys, coming late for classes, greasing the palm of the gate man to let us flow in and out, involved in truancy but never smoked, drank or chase the ladies or got into drugs with them, I was pertinacious though; (Somehow I got the grace to be a hard-headed lad with a difference and stay off those till I got saved). One night I got a call from one of the bad boys asking me if I wanted to be a ‘man’. I told him “No” bluntly. All he wanted was to initiate me into a cult group, but all I ever wanted was to be a tough guy, not some bad boy on the block, so at that point, I knew it was time to leave the platoon, I had this “Radical Rejection” attitude toward sin. But I was way too controversial and always getting into trouble with the school authority, I was known for stirring steal waters. THE MIRACLES Finally done with the examinations I needed to get to college and was going do settle for a little musical time before that. I fell sick and had to go through surgery, out of the fear of the afterlife I made a deal with God and literally told him that “If I get to be wheeled out of the OR alive, I’d completely switch from secular music to gospel”. And it went perfectly that way. After a few weeks, it was now time to record my first gospel single “Have a Dream”. I needed a #1000 to add up to the one I already had for the record. Had no idea where I was going to get it from. Was not going to dare to ask my parents for a dime as they never wanted to hear me rap. So I went to my room, knelt down and talked to God like a dad and just after praying, out of faith, I called the artiste I was going to work with and told him to get ready, we voicing tomorrow, came outside to the front of the porch and was looking up to the blue sky while rehearsing my lines, and just when I looked down, I saw a #1000 right on the ground close to flower palm tree. I was shocked to the bone marrow and that was how I got to the studio to record my first Gospel single the next day. I’d consider that a divine approval. Remember they always say “Miracles are normal”; if you are a believer.

THE DIFFERENCE: The Present

I’m no longer ashamed of the Gospel. Everyone is got a purpose and I think mine is to help people uncover their purpose in life. People have priorities in life. for some in life, perhaps on social media could be to impress people for a thousand likes. Mine is to inspire, motivate and bless over a thousand lives. Because I understand that the moment you become born again, at that very moment a responsibility comes upon you, and that’s the Great Commission, We keep talking of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ; half the world has never heard of the first. Each time I stare at the mirror, I recall the words of Hudson Taylor; “I often think that God must have been looking for someone small enough and weak enough for Him to use, and that He found me.” God could speak to you through, visions, dreams, Bible passages and devotionals, prophecies; feeding you with informations on who to meet, how to go about winning souls, strengthening souls for the expansion of His Kingdom, the people you need to connect with. And no matter how big the dream is never think yourself as something less, because God is Big. In 2015 I was invited to a church and a Man of God made a prophecy about me becoming a world renowned soul-winner (Missionary) which I shared on Facebook, after that came I received more of such prophecies from different bona fide men of God and God Himself has been speaking to me, showing me which way to go, and people I need to connect with. All these gave birth to the new vision and mission of Kingdom Quest Movement. Kingdom Quest Movement 24:14 is a non-profit, non-governmental organization, set up to win, motivate and impact souls with the Gospel of Christ. As we are about embarking on soul-winning, humanitarian aid real soon. KQM used to be a musical clique, the phrase “Used to be” doesn’t in any way make me a former rapper/singer. It’s just a little addition of purpose to be able to connect physically with the good news of salvation and give humanitarian support to souls, to people living in remote areas too poor to have access to technology, to listen to the gospel we preach through music. while I watch them get a relief from the mental stress of poverty. That gives me more joy than the feedbacks I receive from musical fanatics world over. And to end this story, I say LIVE A LIFE OF PURPOSE, THAT PUTS SMILE ON THE FACE OF HEAVEN.

Rapper Aidepha Mac-Rae ‘Geeblex’ Wrote an Open Letter To CHH Artistes In His Hometown via Instagram @aidepha_macrae


Open Letter (gospel artistes : Benue, Makurdi)- Geeblex Aidepha Macrae

I don’t mean to cause any reverberations considering the fact that i have been tagged ‘controversial’ over the years. But Lemme quickly say this. The concept of “clashing schedules” i don’t think is new to anyone. Gospel shows, concerts, events have been held, videos were shot, a lot went on (In Makurdi, Benue State, specifically) in my absence. But the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence; I could remember a night i prayed for the success of a particular concert, i knew time or distance wasn’t going to lemme attend physically, but for real, i was there in the spirit. The point is, i get questioned sometimes by close musical fanatics about not showing up, it gets more crazy when i get to see annoying posts on facebook by some insensitive and callous ‘gospel artistes’, about not showing up, i could apparently say were directed to timeless artistes like myself. That makes me want to imagine how much and deep the knife stab to my back went, but they should be glad I’m two classes away from getting baptized. They are prolly quick to judge because of the delusive thinking that “beef” is actually going on between me and couple artistes doing CHH. The fact is, as humans, we interact constantly, there’s tendency to develop conflicting philosophies and ideologies, but that doesn’t mean i would want to sever ties or withdraw any little support i could offer for the expansion of His Kingdom, no matter the dissension. Do you know why there can’t be competition amongst genuine gospel artistes?, its because we all seek to win all souls for one God. Look, i don’t even see my self as a musician anymore, i have more weighty dreams to pursue; to me.. im just an expressionist before the microphone, so spare me the drama. Nevertheless, you can only live freely without worries when you’ve realised you you can’t disassociate criticism from existence. I’d be glad if you have a rethink and stop judging a free spirit with a clean heart- #PeaceOut @aidepha_macrae

Dear Secular Artistes


DEAR SECULAR ARTISTES I understand people misunderstand people, so most of the time i choose to keep my mouth shut. All i see presently are conflicting posts and comments about gospel artistes. Few weeks ago i saw a post on facebook i’d ignore but describe as “Crapola” made by a secular artiste about gospel artistes not supporting secular artistes by sharing links and all that.. Hey, how would you expect me or any other gospel artiste to share songs with contents that conflict with every bit of the message we put out for public consumption. I do not see my self separated from you guys. As long as we have clean spirits and make good music that sends a positive message, we can always support and collaborate with each other. I mean.. I don’t see secular artistes as sinners, and even if anyone thinks they are, that’s not a good reason to keep a distance. we all have choices and everyone has a consequence to bear respectively. Music is meant to heal, to give hope, to bless, to motivate, to inspire, to entertain, but when your expressions become perverse you can’t get support from all people. we have specific audience the shared stuff could get to and it’s obvious 18+ songs with lewd content don’t appeal to them, so respect and understand our decisions and stop calling us hypocrites, we’d only be when we give in and share the filthy stuff. Backclash come alive when you show up with the delusion that there is a line between. Put tribe and religion aside. I’m a ‘christian’ rapper, i also do gospel rap/music. #Peaceout

Looking For Opportunity To Donate to a Charity? Help Fund Kingdom Quest Missions In Africa Today


Kingdom Quest Movement 24:14 is a new non-governmental and non-profit movement, a community of Christian believers with strong passion and ardent interest for soul-winning across the globe. We have come together as a rugged and effective team guided by biblical principles and priorities to spread the Gospel of Christ with the aim of fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28: 19-20). The population of Africa is about 1.216 billion. We acknowledge and avow the fact that quite a number of lost souls spread across the Continent need the Word to be revived and to survive. Hence, we respond by provision of material, financial, medical, humanitarian support to people living in disaster and poverty stricken areas, recognizing and seizing the opportunity to give spiritual support. We hope to change the world and make it a better place through selfless commitment and a spirit of devotedness. This is borne out of our consciousness to contribute and uplift low human living in the society. We aim to curb the menace of hunger, depression, abject poverty, living in wilderness, we also aim to bring smiles to the faces of people by supporting widows, single mothers facing difficult times and students. To do these, we resolved as follows

1. Tax ourselves, make contribution to give a helping hand to those who are suffering below standard

2. To source for finance through members, reaching out to meaningful people for help

3. Organize empowerment training programmes for peoples at various levels and solicit for funds to establish them for financial stability

4. To help and distribute foods to hunger driven people and strengthen them to stability within a short period of time.

We alone can not do this we need everyone to join us in this crusade and change the world to a better world for all. Thus it would require us making donation and helping people. No amount is too small
