Muyiwa Olarewaju, a British-Nigerian gospel singer, has been granted the Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) award.
The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, honored the 52-year-old awardee with the Officer of the Order of the British Empire medal at an investiture ceremony conducted at Windsor Castle on Wednesday, January 12.
In the Queen’s Birthday Honour Roll of 2020, the BBC One talent show judge and radio personality was granted an OBE for his tremendous services to music.
The elated singer could not hold his joy as he took to Instagram to share the news with his fans. He wrote: “For Services to music. Thank you to everyone that has relentlessly invested in this ‘young man’. You made it possible. A lecturer of mine told me no one is paying attention to you doing gospel music. Years later, here we are.”
In other news, Bishop David Oyedepo, the leader of Living Faith Church, claims that his ministry’s present prosperity is a result of his many years of service to God.
During the continuing 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting, the richest African pastor declared that purchasing a jet did not put the church under strain and that they will continue to fly indefinitely.
He challenged the congregation to continue committed to God’s service, emphasizing that the fruit of their labor would be heard in the future.
In his own words:
“The labour of several years of many of us in the faith, who have refused to give up and to bow out will come to light this year.
“We were not driving a brand-new car when God gave us a plane and to show that it is God who gave us, we are still flying up till now and we are flying forever.
