‘I use music to save souls’

By Damilola Akinmolayan


A gospel artiste, songwriter and composer, Adenike Olaitan, says she does music to ‘save souls.’

The artiste, who recently released her debut single, ‘ Orin Tuntun told Friday Extravaganza how she has always been a lover of good music and appreciates how the music industry have evolved in the past decades.

Olaitan said her music career started about 25 years ago when she started singing as a choir member in her father’s church, Jesus Harvesters Ministry, Owo.

“My Choir Master then was Deacon Monday Akinwale. I started as a lead singer. Then, the Choir Master took us to many programmes both within and outside Owo to sing.

“Aside from the teachings I got from my pastor, music helped me to have better understanding of the gospel, which is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

“I realized that many people do not understand the gospel that way. Hence, I decided to, through my music, relay this message. I think deeply for all my lyrics because I know some souls will be saved when they listen to my music.”

On what inspired her debut single Orin Tuntun , the gospel artiste said, “It’s a song that gets you to dance and praise God. This is a preamble and I hope my fans will stay with me through the journey because there are more to come.”
