Nigerian gospel industry, not there yet

By Bamidele Kolawole


It was indeed a unique performance when Evangelist Olumide Falegan, popularly known as Shalom Music led some of his fans and colleagues in the gospel music industry to offer praises to God in different styles last Saturday.
The Akure-based gospel artiste, packaged the two in-one praises to appreciate God for keeping his life to see another year.
Falegan, while speaking with Friday Extravangaza, said that his passion for music has afforded him the opportunity to dine with kings.
According to him, Gospel music in Nigeria is not there yet, saying something’s are still wrong in the industry.
“God has been faithful to me and my family to make me stand out among my colleagues.
“I love music right from my childhood and I cannot do without music, It has been part of me, music has been my great experience.”
“Personally I don’t believe in competition because we are all running a race therefore there’s no reason for me to jealous of anybody because God is the rewarder men can only award”
“I considered music as career about 15 years, Revd Dr Felix Funke Adejumo and pastor Mrs Adewuyi are the people used to fan me to flame,” he said.
He noted that he received inspiration, directly from the Lord through hearing His voice and most times in his dreams and events.
He mentioned Bishop T D Jake’s as his mentor, saying he love following his feet step.
He identified his challenges as normal things to witnessed while trying to be great in life.
Falegan said that his aim is to sanitise the all world through his inspirational songs and to bring back those people that have gone astray back to God and to make heaven at the end of his race.
He revealed that he has been able to produce one album titled “My Help” since he has been singing and appreciated God who made the programme a success and everyone that witnessed the occasion.
He urged all gospel musicians to make God their priority and allow holy spirit to lead them in all they do.
