I love gospel music ( I mean what's there not to love about it?), it has helped me get through the stormy period of my life just in case you are wondering why I interview a lot of gospel artists (not to say I don't interview other artists oh!).
So with that said, today's interview focuses on another exceptional and Spirit filled gospel artist who has been around the world and back spreading the gospel through his songs. A member of Daystar Christian Center Lagos but has sang in choir for eleven years at The Living Faith Church aka Winners Chapel.
What is your full name?
My name is Gbenga oke adeyemi.
Who and what do you represent?
I represent Jesus christ on earth and i stand for gospel music till Jesus comes.
I do gospel music because if you are saved,redeemed,born again & will make heaven when you die, that's the only type of music you can do. Much more,God gave me an assignment in gospel music.
Why are you not doing secular music, I mean I hear its selling more $ moving market in Nigeria?
Like u said in that question "Sell More",the love of money will send many to hell fire so,anywhere I see quick & easy way to money, I take caution, that's another reason I will forever stay in gospel music no matter the challenges.
Can you share with us events you have touched lives with through your music?
I can't count the events God has blessed lives through me since I began but I can summarize by saying, God has taken me to 17 states in Nigeria to bless lives at different concerts and churches, I have also ministered in South africa,Ghana & the United states of America.
Is there anything that makes your songs different from other gospel artists?
God told me in 2001 that "Your music is to restore healing & hope to many" & to His glory, He has confirmed that word wherever I appear to sing. When you hear my songs or hear me live on stage,despondency & sicknesses disappear at once by the power of God.
Have you had any tough times and how did you get through it?
So many hard times has come & its the same keys that I have always used to overcome them; 1,prayer 2,Faith in God & my assignment 3,Consistency 4,Humility 5,Never say die attitude & 6,Declaring God's word to myself. These keys will silence & overcome any hard time under the sun.
What else will you find yourself doing if you were not doing gospel?
If not gospel music today,i would be a footballer. Lolzz
Do you have any hobbies and favorite sports
My hobbies are playing football,snooker & scrabble.
So is Gbenga single?
Yes,i am single.
What will be the qualities of your ideal future wife?
My future wife should love God & be submissive as God commands, simple!
To round up, few words of advice to your fans and upcoming gospel artists?
For those gospel stars who are emerging, pray always, please be focused, don't be in a hurry, don't live the life secular artistes live & please get a mentor who fears God, you will get there shortly.
