Her main motivation is service to God through leading his people in praise and worship. Joke is multi-talented and very dynamic.

Music for her has always been a hobby and a calling in addition to catering, lecturing and Motivational speaking. She is in high demand for Church Music Consulting and Choir structuring/restructuring basically because of the number of Music Teams and Choirs that she has successfully turned around.
