His Father's name is Mr Joshua Bassey. E who happened to be a minister in the Apostolic Church Bashua Assembly. He fell in love with music when he saw Dr. Panam Percy Paul, a prominent Nigerian gospel music icon in a concert over twenty years ago and since then, his passion and love for music has grown and translated into various musical experiences.
In his early years, Nathaniel Bassey developed a rather uncommon interest for jazz music and began listening, imitating, scoring and playing to the music of some well known jazz gurus namely Louis Armstron, Miles Davies, Krik Whalum and other jazz luminaries.
His passion for the jazz form would later stir him to seek out bands along the jazz lines. He then joined a top jazz quartet in Lagos, Spectrum 4, where he played alongside his childhood friends.
About that time Nathaniel Bassey was approached by one of the most respectable figures in the Nigerian jazz and music circle. He served as band leader and lead trumpter at THE STEVES RHODES ORCHESTRA for a period of two years and later moved on with his music career.
As time passed, he began sensing a deep yearning within. There was more to his music than he thought. He later took time off his jazz pursuit to seek the Lord under the Mentorship and guidance of Late Pastor Eskor Mfon, the former Pastor of The Redeemed Christian Church ofGod, City of David Parish.
This decision attracted criticisms from friends, Artistes and colleagues who thought it unthinakble abandoning what was a thriving mainstream music career to serve exclusively at a local church.
