Nigerian preacher and recording artiste, Damilola Oluwatoyinbo releases his debut album “I’m Not Alone,” available today on digital platforms. The 10-track project features guest appearances from Tolu Odunkoya-Ijogun, Faith Akano-Akpan, Moyege, Toju Oluwatoyinbo, and Dami Funso.
Sharing and narrating the inspiration behind the album, Damilola shares; “I felt alone one night. It was 2018, and I was right in the middle of so many responsibilities. I had just planted a church the previous year and was pouring in a lot of resources into it – spiritual, mental, emotional, financial, and material resources.”
Continues “In this same season, with my first son only 18 months old, my wife was pregnant with our second son. We were in a planting season. We were giving more than we were receiving, ploughing the ground and sowing seeds.”
“Yet at that same time, some of our friends and acquaintances, who we felt would be available to cheer us on, were conspicuously absent and emotionally distant.”
“In fact, some reportedly made uncomplimentary remarks in certain quarters, and they couldn’t outrightly deny those statements when I confronted them.”
“As I prayed one night in our kitchen – pouring my heart to God and talking to Him as a friend, waves of inspiration began to pour as melody into my heart,” Oluwatoyinbo reveals, “I mused, meditated, and kept writing these sounds till it was a full song and that was the seed for this album.
“Over a three-year period, I’ve been blessed to write scores of songs and I’ve put 10 of them in this debut album.” He concluded
Known in many circles as a wordsmith par excellence and lyrical genius, Damilola Oluwatoyinbo is passionate about connecting the hearts of people to God through inspired words. He is a captivating communicator, prolific songwriter writer, passionate worshipper and the dynamic Lead pastor of KINGS.
His new album, “I’m Not Alone” is produced by Wole Adesanya “Mr Wols” for Greenland Sound Factory.
