Inform us about your self

I’m Lekan Remilekun Amos, an anointed gospel music minister. I’m a son of the Ilaje, Ondo State-born gospel legend, Dr. Remilekun Amos of blessed reminiscence. I’m the second in a household of 5. I’m at the moment the president of Remilekun Amos Worldwide Gospel Ministry. I schooled at Muslim Mission Major College, Oworonsoki, Lagos. I then attended Orisigun Excessive College, Ketu, Lagos earlier than continuing to Federal College of Expertise Akure (FUTA) the place I studied Physics/Electronics.


You like speaking about your lacking dad, what about your mom?

I have a mom however she is late. She died in 2009 after a short sickness. My mum was a dealer; she gave up the ghost at the age of 57. I derive pleasure speaking about my dad as a result of I typically refer to his abilities in my songs.

How was your rising when your dad was round?

It was enjoyable. You understand the son and father relationship is at all times an enviable one. I grew up having the love of God and his phrases as my information. I used to be at all times with my dad, shifting round to minister. Exactly, I began approaching stage as an again up artiste at the age of 13, we researched lyrics and composed songs collectively. I believe that was because of the prophecy that got here earlier than my delivery. The prophecy says I’d grow to be a songwriter and music minister. I used to accompany dad to the recording studios in 1997, and I participated in his final recording as an again up artiste in 1999.

What led to your dad’s mysterious disappearance that he couldn’t be discovered lifeless or alive? 

That’s a thriller. He went on a missionary journey and was declared lacking. Sadly, he couldn’t be discovered until the date.

It was rumored that the minister accountable for the church your dad attended had one thing to do along with his disappearance, how true is that this? 

I’ve mentioned it repeatedly that it was hearsay. Members of the family and family members, and even the police weren’t in a position to get the very fact of the case. All investigations proved baseless. Solely God is aware of what transpired; that’s why we’ve left all of it for God to evaluate. The minister accountable for the church was lengthy lifeless earlier than the hearsay broke out, and shockingly, the person who allegedly confessed died after doing so. Hope you see that it’s not traceable.

Did the household of the alleged killer, who occurs to be the minister in cost, do something to defend his picture and that of the church? 


They did through the media. Even, we had been attending the church and dwelling round (the realm) when the hearsay broke. I left the realm and moved on with my life. For me, it was heartbreaking that he went lacking and we couldn’t discover him, lifeless or alive. Like a Yoruba adage says, ‘Omo eni ku, osan ju omo eni no’ that means ‘it’s higher to lose a baby than for him to get lacking’. I consider God will reveal the thriller behind it sooner or later.

Have the police deserted the investigation? 

The case was reported on the police station and I believe they did their job. Like I mentioned, we’ve gone over it, as a result of I see it as a bend and never the top of life. I’ve dreamt about dad numerous instances and I’m positive my siblings would have identical expertise. My dad received a lacking on November 4, 2000. He informed us he was touring to Akure to minister with songs, and he by no means returned.

Most of your songs stylishly assault those that had been allegedly concerned in your dad’s mysterious disappearance. Why did you achieve this and what number of albums have you ever launched in comparison with your dad? 

That’s not true. The one album I did in his honor speaks typically concerning the thriller of life; why males are sometimes deprived of folks God despatched to strengthen their paths. It wasn’t directed at anybody. After that exact album entitled, Aye Soro, I launched an album with messages God impressed and instructed me to present out, as a result of I’m philosophical. As a gospel artist, I’ve at all times preached the gospel in my songs. Dad launched 14 albums whereas I’ve launched solely 9. However, his legacy lingers.

How did you handle to graduate having misplaced your dad at a young age?


It was a tough journey for me, and I see it as a thick and skinny journey. I truly buried my mum on my matriculation day. I misplaced all hope with the disappearance of my dad, however, I had a dedication that schooling was a should for me. I truly dreamt to grow to be a college lecturer, however, at a time, the prophecy was so robust that I couldn’t get admission into any establishment regardless of passing my JAMB exams. I used to be even supplied admission right into a notable college in 2003, however, I didn’t have the cash to pursue it. I then determined to honor the calling, as God had designed it, after which the admission got here and I graduated to the glory of God.

Are you able to bear in mind your first remuneration as a younger artiste and also the saddest second of your profession? 

I used to be a backup artiste for my dad and I didn’t get any encouraging remuneration. Even after I went solo, it was tough, I used to be handled the identical means up and coming artistes had been handled. However thank God, right here I’m right this moment. And as for the saddest second, I don’t assume I’ve any apart from the one I had after I misplaced a band member in an automotive accident some years again.

My most memorable second was after I shared an identical stage with legendary Ebenezer Obey, King Sunny Ade, Bola Are, and host of others. Additionally, one other cherished second was after I noticed my music video on nationwide TV. It was dream come true. I’ll like to characteristic those who have comparable traits with me.

It is going to be the video of my final album, Majemu Titan (New Covenant).

How do you deal with your feminine followers? 

I like my feminine followers however the relationship doesn’t transcend that. They’ve been so instrumental to my progress.

I’ll recommendation up and coming artistes to know their calling, stand by it irrespective of the challenges and anticipate the suitable time God has destined for them to excel.
