Up and coming gospel singer, Abimbola Akinbulumo better known as BB GOLD disclosed that gospel artistes don’t get recognition as much as the hip-hop singers.
I got attached to music from just loving to listening to a lot of it as a child and teenager and when God spoke to me about my purpose, I would literally get lost in different genres of music. I then noticed music touches my soul in a different way. That is why I am so creative with it.
I didn’t pay attention to singing at first. I was more into dancing, till I joined the youth choir of my church. I then realised the impact my singing had on people. It was in the University that I began to minister consistently publicly.
“God spoke to me about the gift and shaped me into being a vessel for Him to speak through musically. It’s been all up and forward from then till now.”
Abimbola who is released her first song lYIN in 2022, also added that her biggest dream as an alujo singer is for her music to heal people in every area of their lives.
“My biggest dream as an artiste is for my music and voice to heal people, soul, spirit and body. I desire or humanity to come to Jesus and know his love.
Sharing her thoughts on the growth of the Nigerian music industry, the songwriter said: “The Nigerian music industry is for me one of the biggest and greatest things happening in the world right now. It is the one thing a lot of Nigerians can smile about and brag internationally about. There is a lot of talents here and the world respects us for it. We just need to put a lot of structure in place.”
She, however urged her colleagues that they should wait unto the Lord, put God first in whatever they may be doing and let God show them the way to follow.
