Dunsin Oyekan Early Life And Background
Dunsin Oyekan was born on 5 November 1984, in Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria. The family of Mr. Gbadebo Oyekan had no other children, therefore he was their only son when he was born. Although his father has passed away, his mother is still active and in good health.
Dunsin had his primary and early childhood education in Ilorin at the Airforce Nursery and Primary school. He began his secondary education at Federal Government College in Ilorin and finished the 6-year program at Baptist Model High School in the same city. Both schools are located in Ilorin.
Dunsinc, who was dissatisfied with his level of education, continued his studies at the University of Ilorin, which is located in the state of Kwara. There, he earned a degree in Industrial Chemistry. While he was attending classes at the University of Ilorin in Kwara State, he also met his future wife.
Adedoyin Oyekan was married to Dunsin Oyekan until she died away on the 18th of May, 2019, and they had two children together. He did not post a gloomy message on Facebook when he announced the passing of his wife; rather, he used the occasion to celebrate triumph and the fact that he feels that his wife is now in glory. Although the circumstances of his wife’s passing have never been made public, she was laid to rest in 2019.
For unclear reasons, Dunsin Oyekan does not appear to be interested in getting another wife, and he has not disclosed any plans to do so. On February 2, 2013, Dunsin began a relationship that would ultimately lead to the birth of his two children with his late wife.
Dunsin Oyekan Ministry
The ministry that Dunsin Oyekan now leads was inspired in the beginning by his father’s passion for music. His father encouraged him to take up the bass guitar when he was a little boy and taught him the basics. He complied, and by the time he was 10 years old, he had mastered the instrument. As a result, he developed an interest in music. He began his journey toward a career in the music industry by participating in the choir of the local singing club. Dunsin Oyekan is a music producer by trade. Although he began his musical education on the guitar, he has since expanded his repertoire to include playing a variety of instruments. At one point in his career, he was the director of music for the COZA choir, also known as the Avalanche of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA). It is said that a disagreement he had with the leader of the church led to his departure from the congregation.
Despite suffering a setback, Dunsin did not let it discourage him; rather, he persisted in advancing the gospel to the place where he is called to do so. He has ministered on prestigious stages like as “The Experience 2017,” where he performed the song “Na You” alongside Kim Burrell. Other gospel musicians, such as Tasha Cobbs, Kurt Carr, Don Moen, Byron Cage, Tye Tribbett, William Murphy, Chris Morgan, Kim Burrell, Sinach, Tasha Page-Lockhart, Frank Edwards, and Freke Umoh, have shared the stage with him and he has worked together with them. He has also performed alongside them.
Dunsin Oyekan has released over thirty songs and his debut album, which is titled Code Red and contains fourteen tracks, was released in 2016. He is officially a member of the Dunsin Oyekan record label’s roster.
Dunsin was recognized by Ynaija as one of the 100 Most Influential People in Christian Ministry in Nigeria due to the significant impact he has had in the industry of gospel music. At the Africa Gospel Music and Media Awards (AGMMA) that took place in 2019, his song “Imole De” was one of the songs that was considered for the “Song of Excellence” nomination.
