There are several songs that she will always be remembered for and taking a closer look at these songs is another way to celebrate her. Osinachi is very popular in the eastern part of Nigeria because she is one of those gospel singers that sing in the Igbo dialect. The song Ekwueme which means the God who talks and does is a song that she was featured in but she dominated the song. The instrumentals of this song are enough to lift one’s spirit and hearing her voice as she exalts God in Igbo heals the broken heart, the weak-hearted, and the weak in spirit. If one was ever in despair, this is the song to listen to and watch your spirit come alive. In the same vein Ikem, once again centers around God being the only source and the one that changes any and every situation with his power.

Listening to the lyrics of her song, one can sense her pain and feel that she literally poured her heart out to God looking at what she was going through that she couldn’t share with people. The Cry calls out to people to accept Jesus because he will not wait forever. The cry is a cry for everyone to choose God over all things because he is the one that can do it. There is one particular spice singing in one’s dialect adds to a song that makes it stand out and seeing how Osinachi goes to the depth and sings from her soul is just beautiful. You No Dey Use Me Play is a song by gospel artist Ema Onyx featuring Osinachi. Osinachi sang the last few verses of the song predominantly in Igbo and it was from a place of love for her craft and art. Jesus Christ is another feature of Osinachi by Minister Umoren. In all these songs, one can definitely tell that singing was a way of escape from the hell she lived in called marriage. Listen to Ekwueme here:
