About Buchi

Buchi is a legendary reggae musician and a true pioneer in the genre. With a career spanning decades, Buchi has left an indelible mark on the music industry with his timeless hits. Between 1987 and 1988, before he became a Christian, he was already playing reggae music with the likes of Ras Kimono and that served as a training for him. When he became a Christian in 1992, there arose a need for him to sing and he was already equipped with enough exposure to reggae music. Buchi began his gospel music journey in 1994 when he resigned his lecturing job with the University of Lagos. He then dominated the gospel music scene through his brilliant tracks and dedication to winning souls with his style of music. He has since released a good number of studio albums and several books aimed at evangelizing and bringing people closer to Christ.
