I’m into Gospel Music to Impact Lives, Win Souls – Mo’lola



By Eric Elezuo

Mo’Lola, whose real names are Omolola Ajegbomogun) is a prolific Nigerian gospel artist, based in Calgary, Canada. Experience and grounded, Mo’lola has been in the service of the Lord through the music ministry for over two decades. In this short interview, she revealed her journey into the gospel world and the reasons she is sold to Jesus. Excerpts:

Tell us about yourself

I am an ardent lover of Jesus, a wife, mother, artist, educator, financial advisor and fashion enthusiast.

I grew up in a Christian home where songs of praise and worship were a daily occurrence.

Venturing into gospel music was inspired by my mother of blessed memory (Mrs. F. A. Odetola, a retired Deputy Registrar of the Obafemi Awolowo University).
She was a devoted Christian, who loved to worship and pray. During the course of her prayer and worship, she would compose songs spontaneously as she is praying, She had a song for every line of prayer she said. This legacy inspired me into composing songs by the help of the Holy Spirit.

I was a member of the Healing Streams Choir, Daystar Christian Center, Nigeria, under the tutelage of K Sticks, a renowned Maestro, before I left Nigeria for Canada. In Canada, I became an active choir member of The Grace Levites of RCCG House of David, Calgary, since I moved to Canada in 2013.

I am also a founding member of Goldmark Chorale Group in Calgary Alberta, under the leadership of Gospel Minister Deedee Berepiki.

Goldmark holds annual concerts tagged Praise Blast every summer in Calgary since its birth in 2015. Pastor Kingsley Ike, Mama Tope Alabi, Ada Jesus, Eben, Lara George, Samsong to mention a few have graced the stage at the concerts. I have been privileged to share the stage with this award winning gospel artists.

Why did you choose to be a Gospel Artiste, and what do you hope to achieve with it?

I believe the whole essence of my calling to gospel music is to impact lives while bringing more souls to the knowledge of Christ. I believe the role of gospel music in today’s society is to bring people to a place of divine encounter with God, changing souls for Christ, bringing the peace, joy and hope of Christ to all souls while also unifying all souls.

Speaking about Unity, The Christian Community is relatively divided along the lines of denominations, doctrines, administration and many more. What is your take on this?

The Christian Community is an institution on its own. Yes, there are different denominations, styles of worship, doctrine and so on… these have caused so much division and disunity amongst believers. This has also found expression through the various genres of gospel music over time which are all beautifully serving different kingdom purposes. However, some denominations would prefer not to mingle with other denominations due to doctrines among others. Some people are of the opinion that other genres that aren’t calm, soulful and reflective or as some will call it “worship” has an element of worldliness in it. Personally however, I strongly believe that every genre of music has its place and purpose . The overall goal is to:

1. Win souls to Christ

2. Bring people to a place where they adore God for who He is and just bask in the beauty of His holiness.

3. Rejoice in him and praise Him for all He is, what He has done, what He is doing and that Which by faith we know He will do, with our song and our dance, just like David did in the Bible with joy and thanksgiving.

Christianity is all about Gods love for humanity, Christ paid the ultimate price, He became the ultimate sacrifice . Why? to ensure no soul is lost to hell. He is the one who will leave the ninety nine to seek the one that got lost. God is Love, He loves us irrespective of our denomination or creed,He created us in his image and likeness and so when we express the various gifts he gives us, we exhibit different expressions of him .
If we profess to be children of God, we should exhibit his love for one another especially if we claim to serve God. We just must love like Jesus did. We must leave our ninety nine to seek that lost one? not by judging them or excommunicating and all those “holy capital punishments” we see this days.
Our lifestyle is the Bible the world is seeing, does your life draw people to Christ or does it repel them? In heaven, there wouldn’t be any denominations, it will just be holy saints paying adoration to the God, who sits upon the throne forever.

Satan plants all this seeds of division just to distract us. To take our focus away from the Holy commission.

How many songs have you released so far?

Kabiyesi was my debut single. So far, I have 6 singles – “Healing” being my latest. Everyone needs a form of healing in different areas of life. It’s a call to drink from the never ending fountain of life – JESUS. I had the privilege of featuring the amazing vocalist, Naomi Classik in it. By the grace of God, I’m also working on more collaborations due to come out this summer.

All my songs are all on YouTube ( and all digital stores.
My social media handles are: IG @itsmolola, Twitter @itsmolola, Tiktok @itsmolola

Mohbad: Ikorodu ‘Cultist’ Threatens to Kill Naira Marley




By Eric Elezuo

A man, who identified himself as Obama, in a viral video, posted by Ogunsuyi Kehinde David @kennywhite234, has threatened to kill Afro hip hop singer, Naira Marley, if he comes to Ikorodu.

The man, who appeared pissed off at the burial site of Mohbad, and said to be cult leader, was seen issuing death threat at Marley in company of other equally aggrieved young people. They accused the musician of being responsible for Mohbad’s tragic death on Tuesday.

It is imperative to note that ever since the death of the 27 year-old singer was announced, the internet has been awash with accusations of culpability against Naira Marley. They said he knows one or two things concerning the death.

Recall that Mohbad and Naira Marley were once part of the same music family. Mohbad, a young rapper, was signed to Naira Marley’s record label called Marlian Records. However, things between them turned sour, and they went their separate ways in 2022. There were hints of trouble before their split.

Mohbad had posted messages on social media, suggesting that he felt threatened and was having problems with Naira Marley and his team. He even shared photos from a hospital bed, claiming he was assaulted. This made people wonder if there were issues between them.

While many suspected that their disagreements might have played a part in Mohbad’s tragic death, there is no concrete evidence to confirm this.

Furthermore, the exact details of what happened between Mohbad and Naira Marley are still sketchy but nonetheless the music community is sad and it appears their anger is directed at the “Soapy” crooner.

Apart from the Ikorodo threat, Naira Marley has received condemnations and more concerning the death of Mohbad.

Mohbad, who died on Tuesday, was hurriedly buried on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after his death.

More will surely be heard concerning the death of Mohbad in the days ahead.
