This group has done great things for itself in North Cyprus and has been replicating such feats in Nigeria and London, UK in bits. Also, having a mass choir worldwide in the long run is a desire which will metamorphose into a  huge platform for gospel singers in Nigeria and the Diaspora.
-Deborah Monebi, Visionary and founder.


On July 4, 2010 a group of young Christians with passion of sharing the good news of Christ to men came together to form a singing group called the SECRET OF DAVID.

“We want to meet the heart cry of people who are longing to encounter the living God through worship and songs”, Deborah  said.

With conviction, passion and clarity she lets us into the genesis of the name Secret of David.
“The SECRET OF DAVID was that he knew how to call on God, if you read through the book of psalms you we see he knew when and how to use the right word for every situation. We are here to take you to a place where encountering and interacting with God will no more be a difficult thing”.


-To evangelize

-To create an atmosphere of communication with God (worship)

-To give hope and encouragement to people and nations

-To bring revival to His church and nations of the earth.

-To portray in works and deed the power inherent in spiritual songs


Since ‘Secret of David’ is in Cyprus and now in Nigeria and London. The next step is working on gathering a mass choir worldwide and birthing a suitable platform via concerts, listening parties, trainings, to mention a few, for gospel singers/musicians in Nigeria and beyond.  Besides, SoD anticipates having a debut album pretty soon.

Singing Experience and Music: “My earliest memory is in the school choir of my primary school. I also remember singing a lot at home because my neighbours and siblings still talk about it- I was their worst nightmare. My parents were quite supportive about my interest in music. However, music was always an escape to me, a place where I could always find peace; something I loved doing a lot! Now, singing is more than a hobby or passion. It is my voice and more than anything, I want to be heard. I don't restrict myself to a particular type of music because I express myself through my music- I sing it as I feel it.”

Purpose and Aspirations:  “Someday, I want to tour the world and bless people's lives with my music the same way other ministers have blessed and transformed my life with the message in their songs. Today, I head an amazing group of young Christians in North Cyprus who share my passion for the gospel music ministry and together we do amazing things for God. We sing, dance, act and are ready to do anything that'll bless God's heart and the heart of His people. There's no greater satisfaction in life than doing that which you know you were created for”.

SoD and my Changed Life: “Secret of David has been part of my life since 2010 and I have cherished every single day of it. It has truly changed my life. I have learnt a great deal from my peers and colleagues in SOD. When I joined the family I wasn't a born again Christian but from the encouragements of my brothers and sisters in the group, I decided to give my life to Christ and it has never been the same”.

Gift and Worship: “My musical skills, career and network have tremendously increased. Back home in Cameroon, I used to sing in a group called Freedom. We did mostly casual Christian and motivational singing and people clapped and applauded our efforts. Then SOD taught me about worshipping God. Just like David, I asked God to create in me a clean heart so that I may worship Him too.

Love at Work and Plans: “I guess the secret in SOD is the love we have for each other. Though silent sometimes, we love each other very much. I have so many plans for the future! God help me! Musically I believe in God's grace in me to add color to the way people worship in Africa”.
