He has made a number of appearances both locally and internationally in countries including Nigeria, Canada, Russia, and Germany. One of such highlight performances was being hosted by their Honours, Lt.

Other performances include singing at outdoor and public events, church concerts, anniversaries and other christian events and outreaches in Nova Scotia and other provinces across Canada.


Emmanuel has an aptitude and passion for teaching as much as he does for performing and composing. He is currently accepting new students of all ages and interests in singing, theory, piano, composition, music analysis. See Music-tutoring for more information.


  Emmanuel is a classically trained musician, a devout Christian who is zealous about sharing the good news of the gospel to all nations through his music.  Besides performing, Emmanuel is a keen songwriter, music director, tutor, composer, producer and experimentalist. He is the founder and manager of Bikkurim Music Studios (BMS), a new and growing establishment solely intended for the creation and teaching of music to younger and older demographics of people interested in music education; as well as to cater to the needs of those who are financially incapacitated to afford music lessons. The other stream of BMS is a vision to create sustainable groups of musical ensembles-vocal and instrumental-that explore spirituality and human connections achieved through the combination of different personal experiences and artistic influences, and out of those mix and matches emerge something eclectic but unprecedented, artistically intricate and unique yet simply gratifying--something significantly palpable that in its wake unifies every caste of the human endeavours regardless of their social stratifications. BMS productions would be an experience to look forward to.

Emmanuel is currently the Artist-In-Residence at Dominion-Chalmers United Church, Ottawa ON Canada. He now resides in the downtown western region of the capital city.
