The man popularly known as “The Eagle” was born on the 5th day of November in 1985; he is a Nigerian.
He is a singer-songwriter, multi- instrumentalist, producer and recording artiste.
He is the only son of a Pastor father, Gbadebo Timothy Oyekan, and a pioneer of a Pentecostal move in Nigeria.
He started singing at age 10 and has from time been backed up by his now late father who also loved music and encouraged him to learn to play the guitar.
He stated in one of his interviews with AllAfrica.Com that;
“My father always wanted me to do music. In fact, he wanted me to study music in the university but my mother wanted something else.
She felt daddy alone should face the ministry thing because of the challenges that comes with it I guess were her reasons. But I kept at it, always rehearsing and practicing my guitar.”
His father was born in Ogbomosho on 02 June 1948 and passed away in Lagos on the 30th of March 2015. He was aged 66 years.
THE DEATH OF HIS WIFE:
There has been no source with much information concerning the death of his beautiful wife Doyin Oyekan.
However, the amazing thing remains that the minister chose to celebrate victory over death instead of mourning.
She was a dedicated and committed follower of Christ before her departure.
On the 10th of June he posted on his Facebook page;
“Instead of mourning, we chose to rejoice
What the enemy meant for evil, God has turned it around for good.
Join me, my family and friends to celebrate the VICTORY we have in Christ!
It’s a celebration of Life for my dear wife who has gone to glory!
On July 2, 2019, barely a month after the demise of his beloved wife, he used his Instagram handle to appreciate all those who showed up to celebrate with him.
His post is as quoted below;
“GLORY TO JESUS!!! #andthedevildied
Thank you for coming to enforce and celebrate with us the VICTORY that we have in Jesus Christ…. I’m certain about the testimonies that abounds.
I also want to use this medium to thank everyone who has stood by me and my family in this season! Thank you for the calls, prayers and genuine show of Love and concern.
Also, on the 16th of August which is her birthday, he released a music video in her memory. The song according to him is one of her favorites.
“Releasing this video today to celebrate the birthday of my wife who has gone to be with the LORD as this is one of her favorites… The memory of the Just is blessed. Love you Babes…”
On 18th May this year, he observed her one year remembrance..
Although his wife is late, Dunsin Oyekan was married to Adedoyin Oyekan, and is blessed with two lovely children.
This is rare among men and quite touching..
This is a message to those who have lost a loved one:
It is not the end of the world; you can really still find purpose in living if you view all hurting things in positive way like Dunsin Oyekan.
May the soul of his loving wife continue to rest with the Creator.
