Speaking on why she maintained the same theme for three consecutive years, Pastor Funmilayo Adeleke says, ”I believe the theme cannot change because love is eternal.
God is love himself. As long as we live, we are mandated to celebrate love. ”If you want to enjoy the best in life, you better live the life of love. I thank God for the life given to me to obey his voice by reason of spreading the good news of love to my generation.
“The theme cannot change until the whole world is touched with love because the only thing that is missing in the world is LOVE”.
She believes in God to establish the good news of love all over the world through her. According to her, “we are called to love. We are born to celebrate love and we are to die in love.
I will continue to run with this vision God has given me until the whole world knows and demonstrate the true love of Christ”. Pastor Funmilayo Adeleke who started her musical career in 1993 has produced 9 albums and 42 tracks in all.
