EVANG. FUNMI ARAGBAIYE & SIBLINGS HOLD MUSIC CARNIVAL FOR MUM

•How They Celebrated Madam COMFORT OMOPELADE OLASOJI FAWEHINMI

Friday 29th April 2022 was a day set aside for the burial party of Madam Comfort Omopelade Olasoji Fawehinmi in Ibadan. As of 10 am all was set for the celebration of the life of Madam Comfort who passed on at the age of 95. The deceased is the mother of veteran Gospel singer and President of Gospel Musicians’ Association of Nigeria (GOMAN), Dr Evangelist Funmi Aragbaiye. Celebrating the nonagenarian was nothing short of a mega party. It was a star-studded ceremony, well attended by the creme-de-la-creme of the Gospel music industry and eminent personalities.

The popular magnificent event centre in Ibadan, Mauve 21 Event Centre, played host to the ceremony. The hall was filled to capacity. It was indeed a celebration galore in honour of Mama Fawehinmi for a life well spent.

THE CEREMONY WAS HIGHLY COLOURFUL

It was a very colourful event as guests shone like stars, in their Aso Ebi outfits. The unique and dominant colour of the day was Leaf Green. Large parts of the guests were dressed in the lovely general Aso-Ebi Ankara, while friends and associates of Evangelist Funmi Aragbaiye, wore greenish dry lace. They all looked elegant in their various outfits.

The ceremony was no doubt, a big one. It was well anchored by Reverend Tunji Akintayo of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria. Every aspect of the party was glamorously conducted. Dignitaries were duly recognized and celebrated.

 6 TOP VETERAN GOSPEL MUSIC ICONS HAD A GREAT TIME ON STAGE

The burial party of Madam Fawehinmi is a remarkable one. Great gospel artistes across Nigeria were in attendance and their presence alone added more Glitz to the already glamorous party.

The big story of the ceremony was how 6 veteran and top Gospel music Icons mounted the stage to perform and rejoice with Evangelist Aragbaiye on celebrating her mother for a life well spent. These highly celebrated musicians are Evangelist Chief Ebenezer Obey Fabiyi, Evangelist Bola Are, Evangelist D.A. Fasoyin, Evangelist Timi Oshikoya Telemi, and Pastor JA Adelakun Ayewa, and Evangelist Toun Soetan. They all thrilled the guests and audiences with their lovely music which will forever remain evergreen in the mind of many people in the hall.

 GOSPEL MUSICIANS TURNED UP FOR EVANGELIST FUNMI ARAGBAIYE

The presence of members of the Gospel Musicians’ Association of Nigeria was well recognized. Every state where the association operates had a good number of members as representatives. They all stormed the ceremony to honour their leader and president, Evangelist Aragbaiye. This shows what an excellent and charismatic leader she is.  She is indeed strengthening the bonds of togetherness in the association. She is doing this remarkably well.

 WHAT EVANGELIST FUNMI ARAGBAIYE SAID ABOUT HER MUM

“No doubt, Motherhood is pride. Motherhood is love. It’s on this premise that I wholeheartedly express my gratitude and that of my entire family to God Almighty for granting us the grace to celebrate our dear benevolent and selfless mother, Madam Comfort Olasoji Fawehinmi, who gave her all to endure we are what we are today. My mother is one in a million. It was her selflessness and desire to make sure her children succeed in life that made her to stay with me for more than 30years before her death came calling. All through the years, she stood by me as my pillar of support, confidant, adviser and role model. She was with me through thick and thin, and constantly use her native and biblical knowledge to help me navigate things through God’s grace. To say I will miss her is an understatement; ditto my siblings.”
