Tell us about yourself
My name is Rose Oye, I am a gospel singer and a business woman. I am also in the medical field here in the UK. I have my root in Nigeria, even though I have lived in the United Kingdom for a long time.
What is your drive for doing gospel music?
Yeah, Gospel music is an assignment for me. God has given me the mandate to reach out to people with my music.
So what drives me is the instructions and directions of God. I write music about salvation, love, humanity and everything that preaches to everyone (not just Christians), but to every human created by God.
How would you define your kind of music?
I write music from different genres with different messages. I have written songs on the R&B genre, pop, Afro beats, and I am working on several others too.
Do you have any plans for a gospel concert/event in Nigeria?
I look forward to hosting a mega concert in Nigeria by 2022. One of my events, 'An evening with Jesus' is a community concert we
started in the UK. We want to create an African version to be hosted in Nigeria by God's grace. Plans are already going on underground,
very soon we will be launching our Nigerian team for this project.
Which Nigerian artist(s) do you look forward to working with?
In one of my past projects, I have worked with Kenny K'ore, going forward I am preparing a track to feature Mike Abdul.
I want to also create all round music with some other top gospel stars in Africa, yet to be disclosed.
We are in the middle of the year already, do you still have plans for any song project before the year ends?
Yes, I am going to be shooting some of my videos anytime from now. And I am planning on recording a new single track.
What personal message do you like to pass across to your fans?
Never to give up on their dreams. It might get tougher and look very uneasy, but they should keep trusting God for a fulfilled vision.
