If we were to outline all we’ve learnt this year, all the expressions in the world won’t be sufficient. Jokingly, people claim 2020 turned out this way because it was overhyped. How true?
In May, two fabulous souls blessed us from their wealth of knowledge, trust me, December won’t be an exception. My interviewee’s simplicity is second to none and I admire her resilience. If you’re current, you’d know she recently released a mindblowing track. I bid you all, read with an open mind and share to motivate others.
Compliments of the season!
The word, “fascinating” can’t illustrate how incredible you are. I’m super sure there’s more to the lady we see on Instagram. Kindly tell us who you are and what you do.
My name is Ayomiku Mary Alabi, I was born May 7 1998, I studied music at Bowen university and I am a graduate to the glory of God.
I know for sure that you are a spirit-filled music minister, how did you discover your singing potential?
I discovered my singing potential when I was 8 years old, my interest in music was quite spontaneous. I didn’t even have to listen to song three times before catching the lyrics and it didn’t even matter what genre of music it was.
In most cases, parents find it difficult to accept God’s will for their children especially when it has to do with the ministry. Describe how it felt like convincing your parents you wanted to be a music minister.
I didn’t have to convince my parents that I wanted to become a music minister. They were already musicians so it was just right that I am too.
How do you think young minds out there can earn a living from their God-given talents?
I think the first thing to do is to be sure that it is truly what they have been called to do because it is a different thing to have a talent and it is a different thing to have a purpose. Sometimes our talents and our purpose are not the same but most times they are.
At some point in our lives, we do things that make people make fun of us. What’s your most embarrassing moment?
I can’t remember any embarrassing moment.
What are your most essential ingredients when preparing”Efo riro”?
The Efo itself (LOL)
Instagram or Twitter? What’s the reason for your response?
Twitter because you can easily express yourself and it really helped in the END SARS Protest.
Almost every youth in Nigeria believes they cant thrive without connections. Do you believe in standing on the shoulder of giants?
I don’t believe in standing on the shoulders of giants but believe in the power of networking.
What important lesson did 2020 teach you and what do you hope to do differently?
2020 taught me to take everything more seriously and use time wisely with family and friends. And I hope to appreciate things differently than I used to.
Challenges are a part of our growth process. What challenges have you encountered and how did you overcome them?
A lot of challenges but how I overcome them is through prayers.
What does My Inner Awesomeness mean to you?
My Inner Awesomeness is what sets me apart from others and it’s the fact that I don’t differentiate people from people.
Do you believe social media can usher in profit-making opportunities? If yes, why?
Yes, because there are a lot of people making it through influencing, brand deals, etc.
How will you describe fulfilment? Working for The kingdom of God and simply winning souls for God.
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where people compare your voice with that of your mum?
Yes, every time.
Where does your passion come from?
It comes from God?
Kindly leave a word of advice for youngsters out there.
Believe in God, believe in yourself and believe in your calling. Don’t compare yourself with anyone, your pace isn’t another person’s pace.
Thanks for your time.
