Speak the name Kayode Olusoji, and visions of dynamic worship songs and lively praise of African tunes spiced with a Contemporary flavor will rush to mind. He is known for his Cross-cultural songs and smooth blending of African tunes with a contemporary flavor, creating a unique style of music which he described as Afro Contempo Gospo Music. His ministration is always filled with the aura and the presence of God, leaving his audience speechless, craving for more of God.
Kayode is a man on a mission. His mission is to reach out to the world through songs and groom the true worshippers who will worship God in Spirit and in truth, in accordance with the mandate given to him by God in 1996.
One of the major turning points and landmark in his ministry was his encounter with the man of God, Pastor E.A. Adeboye. He shared his vision with him in 1997 and he encouraged him and prayed for him. In 1999 after listening to one of the messages of the man of God titled “His Ministers’ Flame of Fire”, his heart was pricked and he developed an unquenchable thirst for the fire of God. According to the message, you can either receive the Fire of the Holy Spirit from the Rock of Ages (God) or from a man of God who has the fire already by laying of hands. After seeking the face of God, he prayerfully approached Pastor E.A. Adeboye who prayed for his ministry and laid hands on him. Since then the power of God came heavily upon him and his ministry has not remained the same.
Kayode successfully combined music with banking for a decade. Two solo albums later, his latest being the critically acclaimed recording “Gidi Gan” which means, “abundantly or more than enough”. Prior to the release of “Gidi Gan”, he has previously released, “The Unchanging God” and “Arise”.
