Terngu, Timothy aka Mas T, Sarah, Naomi and Jerry who’s also known as Daddy J are the five siblings that make up the contemporary gospel pop music group called Izik5 originally from Gboko in the Benue state of Nigeria.
The 5 were born and raised in a Christian home where both parents Isaac & Eunice were musically inclined. So it is not shocking that they were all drawn to singing and instruments from an early stage and they have been singing together for more than fifteen years.
Having grown up in a Christian home, they knew Jesus from quite an early age but Timothy or Mas T made his sinners prayer when he was 6 years old after watching and being moved by the movie ‘A thief in the night.’
Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me…
From an early age Timothy was certain of what he wanted to do, so by the time he was in high school he had started writing songs and had taken a keen interest in playing guitar. One day they played and sang at a night vigil and a guy with his friend who were on their way to the night club heard their songs and stopped and told his friend the music was drawing him. He left his friend, came into the church, joined us in praise and worship and accepted Jesus Christ. Since then there has been prophecies from pastors that they would reach the ends of the earth through music to win souls for Christ.
…The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
Their mission is to unite nations into “one family” through their music. Inspiring the youth and proving that it is actually cool to love Jesus, if not cooler! is also on the agenda. They also aspire to be good, formidable role models for children and teenagers as they bring glory to the Lord through their talents. So far other than releasing and getting amazing reviews for their music they are helping the underprivileged through their NGO: Caring hands for wounded hearts. In the future their goal is to build a children’s hospital in Nigeria.
The one thing they know about God is that if we delight in Him, He will surely grant us our heart’s desires.
