Later that year, Kenny K’ore forged ahead as a solo artist with a lot of people second guessing his decision, but today he has become a testimony on how good gospel music should be done.
To clarify any doubts about his solo career move, he said in an interview HERE that “Infinity Is A Mother Ministry To My Ministry“.
He released his first solo album titled ELEDUMARE, which made national and global waves with songs like Somore, Eledumare & Yalako, to name a few. His follow up album NOAH also did pretty well.
