Gospel music singer and ‘Amona tete mabo’ artiste, Pastor Joseph Adelakun, also known as Baba Ayewa, celebrated his 75th birthday on Tuesday, June 11, 2024.

The milestone was celebrated with a grand banquet at his residence, attended by friends and family.

Various dignitaries paid tribute to him, recognizing his impactful gospel music and exemplary lifestyle.

Pastor Tunde Kajogbola, Founder of Graceway Chapel International, spoke highly of him, saying, “Baba Ayewa is my father and he is a worthy father, an amiable teacher, and a vessel of God’s grace. He imparts this grace to everyone around him, correcting with love and nurturing younger ones without highlighting their mistakes.”

Emmanuel, Baba Ayewa’s first born, shared, “Dad is an amazing personality and a man of God. He is straightforward, God-fearing, and prays frequently. His life is truly worth emulating.”

His daughter, Funmilayo, stated, “Dad is fun to be with if you understand him. He is disciplined, stemming from his military background, and he dislikes hearsay. Despite his strictness, he cares in his own way.”

Serah, Ayewa’s daughter-in-law, added, “Grandpa is a free-spirited person, a God-send. He has made significant impacts in many lives, including mine. Whenever I feel down, Grandpa’s encouragement lifts me up.”

Born on June 12, 1949, Joseph Adebayo Adelakun is a renowned Nigerian gospel singer, songwriter, and pastor of the Christ Apostolic Church.

He is set to retire from his pastoral duties on Sunday, June 16, 2024, to focus entirely on his gospel music ministry.
