Popular gospel singer, Tope Alabi, will be marking his 50th birthday on Tuesday, October 27, 2020, and she says she considers it a ‘great honour’.
Speaking in an interview with Sunday Scoop, she said: “I feel good being 50. It is a blessing from God and I consider it an honour. Now that I’m 50, there wouldn’t be much difference from what I have been doing but I would dedicate more time to my school of music ministers to groom a new generation of gospel music ministers. Beyond that, I would keep praising God and being a prayer warrior. I want to build the school so that I can help other gifted people coming up. I believe in God and I know there is nothing He cannot do. I would not mind if I get people to assist me on the project.
“I would also be releasing more albums. For the first time, I would be releasing an hymnal album. I would also release an album titled, Olorun, that would contain my 21-day worship programme on Instagram and Facebook.
“There are so many things to thank God for, including keeping my family. My job does not allow me to stay at home that much but the Lord has raised my children for me and taught them His ways.”
On her plans for her golden jubilee, she added, “I intend to celebrate the faithfulness of God in my life and ministry. I and the Gospel Vibes team have been together for the past 50 days praising God and it has been awesome. On the D-day, I would have a minister in my home to pray for me and my family.”
On if she had any unfulfilled aspirations, Alabi said, “There are many things one would like to do but there isn’t the money or time to do them. However, one thing I would love to do is travel out of the country for ministrations with all my band members. And, I believe that would be fulfilled any time soon.”
