ADE – Elu Agogo
Inspired by the drums and rhythms of Africa, Adepeju Dawodu strives to take gospel music lovers on a journey where the words of faith wrapped in music creates an atmosphere to experience the spiritual.
I am a psalmist, a prophetic voice to the nations says Ade (AH-day), as she is often called. My goal is to sing and affect the lives of people, to call them the victors they are in Christ.
Through her unique combinations of originally composed lyrics, she gives worship music a universal feel that she relates to in her own life. The saying art imitates life, is very true in her case. Ade believes that music is a language through which people can connect and tell stories.
Ade grew up in Christian household. Her late father was a pastor in Guiding Light Assembly Lagos, Nigeria. There, she discovered her love for music, where she went on to join the choir and rose to the status of praise leader. She subsequently began writing songs, and over time, compiled the music that resulted in her debut album M.I.H ( Made In Heaven).
Ade moved to the United states but maintained strong relations with her native Roots, in Nigeria.
In her music career, Ade has been background vocalist for notable African artists, as well as a praise and worship leader and soloist in various felloweships and churches in the united states.
Ade has travelled far and wide on account of her inspiring music. She is currently back in the studio working on her upcoming worship album
