Way Maker, the critically-acclaimed song written by Nigeria’s own Sinach has won the song of the year at Dove Awards 2020 in the United States.
Way maker was originally released by Sinach in 2015, but it re-gained popularity in the last year after being covered by Michael W. Smith and others.
Sinach performed the song during the awards show with Leeland and Mandisa.
She expressed her delight and gratitude in an Instagram post earlier today.
