Funmi Ayinke is doing well in music. She made her entry into Music not too long ago and she is making waves. She is an accomplished lady of substance, who has her fingers in many pies. She is what you could call an all-rounder. She is an Engineer. She also recently launched a new career in Reality Speaking, after 20 years in Humanitarian services. She was tagged not too long ago as Nigeria’s powerhouse by Spotlight USA radio.
She has always been an inspiration to the youth. Funmi Ayinke is her brand name. Her real name is Funmilayo Waheed-Adekojo. The big news is that lately, she has been doing a lot in Music. She sings well. She performs well. She entertains whenever she performs.
She just released an official video of her song, Carry Me, to celebrate this season of love, Valentine’s season. The official video shows one thing about Funmi. That she is good at what she does.
How did music start for her? What is the attraction? She told CityPeople recently.
“Many don’t know I started singing during the Endsars crisis in Nigeria,” she explained to CityPeople.
“I wanted to go for a meeting in Lagos, from Abuja, and I was told there was lockdown. No flight was coming to Lagos and all that.
I told my driver to take me to the studio. That is how I began to sing and since then I have been singing.
That was just it.”
What was the attraction? It was to add my voice to the collective voice of Nigerian youths that we are all tired of the country’s situation.
I know that we can not all be on the street. So, I wanted to use music to add my voice.”
If I write, the majority won’t read, but I know they love music, and that was why I did that song titled IT IS OUR TIME
Talking to everyone both within and diaspora, that it is our time to all come home and touch our homes and change our country.
Within the space of a year, I did my album titled THE JOURNEY
That got me an award for the best motivational singer in West Africa by the West Africa Gospel Forum; the motivational song of the year was given to one of the tracks in my album titled” I can make it“
In my album, I featured the likes of Jaywon, Obey Ebenezer, Magnito and Klintz De Drunk
“After this, I noticed another problem in the country: we don’t love ourselves.
Lack of love has been the main problem of every crisis in the world and our country.”
In my Album, I have a track titled “The only thing that Matters “.
But, l felt one track about love wasn’t enough to pass my message, and the terrible thing I heard our youth saying up and down is this annoying world from the gate of hell tagged as “Breakfast‘.
That means the devil is hypnotising the young minds not to believe in a long-lasting marriage, and the majority don’t think there is anything called true love when someone like me is enjoying Sixteen years of blissful union with four kids, and I still have my career
I told myself it was time again to pass another message via music
All five tracks are Love songs, which we have titled CARRY ME. I just released the official video.
We have DRAMA, JORO, CHOCOLATE
In the space of fewer than two years in music, I got invited to O2 Arena in London, which I went to last year in November, and the performance was lit.
To God be the glory as I keep the fire burning and I also keep rekindling the fire of hope to our people.
God alone takes all the glory
I have released an EP titled NEW DAWN
CityPeople can authoritatively reveal that Funmi is not only doing well, she is also enjoying her career in music. God will continue to bless her efforts.
