Gbolahan

gbolahan is a young man from Lagos, Nigeria who dared to pursue his dream of being a guitar tutor and a performing gospel artist even while he was an undergraduate at the University of Lagos. This dream he's actively pursued for the last 11 years and he's become a guitar tutor of repute in Lagos to over 300 clients with his most famous protege being Nigeria's own internationally acclaimed songbird, ASA. As a recording artist, his most famous song remains 'Agbanilagbatan' (Ultimate Deliverer), a Yoruba song he learnt from his late maternal grandmother. The song begins with his signature rhythm guitar and his smooth voice. Its a beautiful collaboration with one of Nigeria's best Producers Emmanuel Cobhams Asuquo. His Album Seni Ma Dupe (I will give thanks) is an album delivered in his two primary languages, English and Yoruba which he uses intermittently from verse to chorus in almost all his tracks. He adds, "This album is a culmination of the prayers, worship, pain of betrayal, depth of love, thanksgiving for victories that I've experienced in the past 4 years, and I am a witness to God's faithfulness even in the midst of life's storms."
He lives in Lagos with his wife of 5 years, Ademilola and he's built his own music school where he continues to execute his passion and lifelong dream of being a premier guitar, piano and voice tutor to hundreds and thousands of a new generation of Nigerian music icons.
