Music has always been part of me for long. Tho my motivation towards becoming a gospel artist is my late brother “Tolu Crown” blessed memory. He is an Icon I always want to be like, and also fortunately for me God also joined me with my kind like of friends (You know that feeling when you are a singer and all your friends are instrumentalist?). lastly I derive joy in Church, if am not at home or at work, go to church, you’ll find me.
Do you ever make mistakes during music ministration/performances? How do you handle that?
During our sent forth in school I was leading “Lean on me by Micheal Bolton”, the second verse I did not score. I had to switch off the Mic and believe me nobody noticed. All attention was on the sound engineer who was my roommate. I actually told Him about it and apologized
