Can we meet you ma?
My name is Foluke Omodara. I was born into the Arowodasa’s family of Ondo State in the South West of Nigeria to my parents Elder and Mrs Patrick Arowodasa. I am the first daughter and the second born in the family of four.
I am happily married to a wonderful husband Olufemi Omodara and we are blessed with children.

When did your interest in music starts?

Since I was very little. I grew up in a musical family thus, music has been part of my life since birth.

How will you describe your music?

I am a music minister, a performing and Recording Gospel Artist, a Song writer, Praise and Worship leader with a heart set to lead God’s people to the presence of God, bring His glory down and be a blessing to generations through my ministrations by the grace of the Almighty God.

The gospel music is a bit over crowded, how do you intend setting yours apart?
By focusing on God whose praise I sing. The sky is big enough for birds to fly. To stand out in anything you have to be dedicated, focused, disciplined, diligent and have total trust in God.

Who inspired you musically?

The Holy Spirit inspires me. I also got inspiration from life experiences.
The experiences of lack, sorrow, stagnancy, to God, be the glory, He is making ways for me and met all my needs.

I also inspired to praise God more after I was delivered from an accident.

I have some gospel artistes that have inspired me over the years like Cece Winans, Shirley Caeser, Juanita Bylon, Sinach, Pastor Wale Adenuga, Don Meon, Kirk Franklin, Nathaniel Bassey, Pastor Moji Alawiye, Donnie McClurkin and Gbenga Adenuga among others.

What are your favorite musical instrument?
My favorite musical instrument is my voice,  but I also love other instruments like keyboard and drums.

Can you share with us your love life and how you met your husband?

I and my husband met in the church, RCCG Chapel of Reconciliation, Gbagada, Lagos state. We were just friends, co-labourer in Christ. He was looking up to God for a life partner, I was also trusting God for a future partner.

He went to our Pastor and told him that he loved me and would want to marry me. Our Pastor informed me and I opened up to him about a revelation I got before confirming he was the one.

He gave us the go-ahead to start our courtship, my husband proposed officially and the rest is history

How were you able to combining music career with family obligations?

It’s been by the grace of God. I thank God for the support I have been getting from my husband, family and loved ones. They help a great deal with the children

Have you been sexually harassed before in the music industry?

Not really, I haven’t so far since I got married.

What do you think is responsible for sexual harassment in the gospel music industry?

Sexual harassment is everywhere. I will say the one who yields to the work of the flesh is the one responsible for it.

Fleshly desire, lust, covetousness are caused in man. The one who is given to lust might now use the vulnerability of a musician needing support, funds and help as a means of satisfying his/her lustful desire.

What are your challenges in life?

Life is full of challenges so I have had my own share too.
But as a music minister, I can say the major challenge I have encountered is sponsorship and finance. Music ministry is a huge one that needs lots of funds and support.

What is your advice for the beginners?

They should be humble. They should not despise the days of little beginning.
They should work on their relationship with God, stay focused and have a good character. They should strive to live a holy life.

What is your advice on parenting?

After God, the well being of your family should be your priority.
Children should be given lots of attention. Try to be there for your spouse and children. Parenting is a lot of hard work so you must rise to the task. Raise them up in the way of the Lord so that when you are old, you can have peace.

Buhari: 12 million Nigerian children are afraid of attending school

post-image

According to President Buhari, 12 million children in the country have been traumatized and are frightened to attend  school because of the high prevalence of kidnapping.

On Tuesday, October 26, the President announced this during the launch of the Safe School Programme in Abuja.

The President, who was represented at the ceremony by his Chief of Staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, also stated that dealing with security concerns in the country has been difficult.

“The incessant attacks on the country’s education system such as kidnapping, abduction of pupils/students, increased activities of insurgence and general insecurity in our schools have exacerbated many factors responsible for the growing number of out-of-school children.

It is disheartening to note that even when the abducted students are released, the trauma of the incidences remains long in their minds; hence the plan to have teachers trained on psycho-social support.

There are more than 12 million children currently traumatised and afraid of…

Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), claims it would “convincingly” win the next gubernatorial election in Anambra and the presidential election in 2023.

John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker committee, said on Thursday, October 21 at the inauguration of the state congress appeal committee in Abuja that all members of the APC should see disagreements “within the party as family disputes and should not seek to destroy the platform which helped them in the past.”

“With the huge membership strength we have recorded during the last registration and revalidation exercise, there is no doubt that Nigerians still trust us and that we will win all the upcoming elections convincingly, starting from the governorship elections in Anambra, to Osun, Ekiti, and to the 2023 general election,” he said.

“Therefore, there is a greater need to sustain the trust of our party men and women and indeed all Nigerians.
