“I had so many challenges as a young boy, one of which was the fact that there was a point where my parents were so broke and could not afford to provide for me, God was our sustenance then as it was a great battle for us to afford a good meal even as a family” – Boluwatiwi Sings
I am Odufuye Boluwatiwi Edward popularly known as "Boluwatiwi Sings" I’m an IT Professional, On-Air Personality, a seasoned instrumentalist, a worship leader and a teacher of the Word sold out for the advancement of the Kingdom of God. I’m blessed to be the first of 4 children God gave to A/P Bolaji Odufuye and Mrs Abioye Odufuye of Ijebu-Isiwo Ogun-State Nigeria.
I attended THE KINGS SCHOOL Abaranje road Ikotun Lagos after which I proceeded to Federal Science and Technical College (Ijebu-Imusin) Ogun-State for my secondary education. Although I had the intention of studying Civil Engineering ended up studying Computer Science at The Gateway Polytechnic (Saapade) Ogun-State ( a decision I am ever thankful to God for).
Growing up on the streets of Mushin Lagos was quite interesting as I was exposed to a lot of bad things but thanks to the morals and spiritual guidance I received from my parents as it kept me modest.
My childhood was quite interesting as I had my fair share of youthful exuberance which led me into committing many atrocities most especially during my secondary school days. I used to be the best student in my class and also one of the greatest troublemakers in school which led to my being suspended in my 5th year in secondary school (SS2) for leaving the school premises without permission to go and play PlayStation. On resuming immediately after my suspension, I was appointed as a Prefect.
Funny it is but it was a position I deserved considering my academic performance.
I got saved eventually at the age of 20 after responding to many altar calls. It was on a family weekend celebration in RCCG and I was asked to represent the youth by preaching the Word on a Sunday service in the church. Because of the fear of all my sins being exposed by God on the altar when I'll be preaching, I fasted for 3 days and on the day of the ministration, God really took charge. That was the beginning of the journey with Christ but it took so many falling and rising and each day was an opportunity to get better... HERE I AM TODAY standing firm in the faith.
I had so many challenges as a young boy, one of which was the fact that there was a point where my parents were so broke and could not afford to provide for me, God was our sustenance then as it was a great battle for us to afford a good meal even as a family.
I also was faced with the challenge of being pressured by friends and peers but I was able to overcome because my parents knew I was a very bad boy but they never stopped praying for me.
Being an ambassador of Christ is the best thing that has ever happened to me because ever since I gave my whole life to Him, He has been planning my life for me and things have been falling in pleasant places for me.
My advice to young people out there is that they give their lives to Christ as it is only in Him that one can discover their purpose in life. He is the answer to whatever puzzle life poses your way.
