So i have been inspired to start a weekly series on this blog, called the #GospelMusicMasters. The idea is to celebrate the people who are behind the amazing songs we worship with and listen to in church.
This will include Choir directors, Christian music artistes, Outstanding Choir members, Instrumentalists, and many more doing an outstanding job in the music ministry.
Mind you, they don’t have to be famous. After all, God almighty is the one we aim to please with our service, and not the adoration of men.
That being said, our Gospel Music Master this week is MINISTER DAMOLA JOHNSON! a graduate of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Nigeria, COPA (Campus of Performing Arts), College S.A Durban, South Africa, with a degree in Digital Media Production & Radio Broadcasting, and he also studied Audio Recording, Mixing and Mastering from Multimedia Training Institute, Lagos. DAMOLA JOHNSON is the Music Director of LOVE-WORLD MUSIC MINISTRY Durban, KwaZulu-Natal Zone, South Africa.
In April 2013, he coordinated the first live recorded concert called “In His Presence; Chapter One” by the LMM Durban Group”. And the Rhythms of Life Concert / Live DVD Recording in August 2013.
Fondly called “Big Dee”, DAMOLA JOHNSON is a song writer, fantastic keyboard player, sound engineer and choir director. He’s passionate about the music business and even more passionate about the gospel.
When he’s not doing ministry work, Big Dee describes himself as a “business man to the core”. His other interests are advertising, PR and broadcasting.
He is presently studying at Campus of Performing Arts Durban which is affiliated with Academy of Contemporary Music UK. and according to DAMOLA, when he’s done with that, It’s time to rock the music industry like never before!
And did i mention his fashion sense is epic? No one rocks a bow tie like Big Dee!
