Pastor Nathaniel Bassey is a Gospel Music Minister from Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. He is a Recording Artiste, trumpet player, singer/song-writer and a music producer. He serves as The Pastor of THE OASIS- The Youth Church of RCCG, The King’s Court. Lagos, Nigeria. Before accepting the call of God to full time music ministry, Pastor Nath was band leader of the Steve Rhodes Jazz orchestra, a member of the Spectrum 4 jazz quintet, and many other musical bands and affiliations.
Minister Bassey believes that music is primarily, a fundamental tool in the praise and worship of God and an avenue by which He (God) relates with His people. He expresses his deep love for God through his music and features in concerts, crusades, church events and other kingdom gatherings and continues to lead many to the LORD.
Pastor Nath speaks at worship and music seminars within and outside the shores of Nigeria. Inspiring the next generation of worship leaders and gospel musicians has also been a major focus of his ministry, regularly emphasizing the concept of a “TOTAL AND COMPLETE” music minister with SPIRIT, SKILL, AND CHARACTER.
His distinctly prophetic sound on the trumpet resonates far and wide, stirring a revival and passion to holiness, godliness and heartfelt worship in the body of Christ.
His debut album, ELOHIM, was recorded in 2008 in Capetown South Africa. He has gone ahead to release other albums since then; THE SON OF GOD(2014), THIS GOD IS TOO GOOD(2016), REVIVAL FLAMES (2017), JESUS: THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE(2018), THE KING IS COMING (2019), and HALLELUJAH AGAIN (2021) with Songs that have become church anthems; transcending racial, cultural and ethnic lines and boundaries.
His most recent project, a 15-Track album filled with Prophetic Chants, High Praise, Adoration, Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual songs, ‘THE NAMES OF GOD’ was recorded live in November 2021 and has become a major tool of worship for Worshippers of Jesus across the globe.
In June 2017, he kicked off the “HALLELUJAH CHALLENGE”, an online praise and prayer meeting which attracts thousands of participants from around the world to date.
He is married and lives in Lagos, Nigeria, with his wife and their children.
