A gospel musician, Kushimo Gideon Oluwatosin Tolulope known as Divine Bass has released his debut album entitled ‘Ope Lo Ye.’

The all-praise instrumental album is also on Itune, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon and Google Play.

Speaking with our correspondent on how he found himself in music, Divine Bass who is also a Justice of Peace (JP) said, “At the age of five, I was able to identify the tune of bass lines while listening to music despite the fact that I could not figure out the tonic sofa. The most important thing is that the tone of bass guitar in a song motivated me so much till I grew up with a passion to play it.

“The fact that my father was a singer in the 70s singing secular juju in the streets also influenced me and all his children to play one instrument or the others. He encouraged any of us that has an interest in music. It is also interesting to know that my background is from the white garment church where we challenged ourselves on each instrument. Back then we only had drum, keyboard and percussion instruments, despite this, I had no interest in any of those instruments until bass guitar arrived,’’

According to him, another thing that helped his career was the fact that his sister fiancé was a circular musician who used to keep his instruments in their house. For him, that was where it all started. He added that every one of them chose the instruments of their choice while no one picked bass guitar because it peels finger as a learner.

What bolstered his love for music was when he joined Redeemed Christian Church of God. His words: “At Redeemed I have pictured myself to be an icon in the National Praise team. With God on my side, it came to reality in 2016 after graduation from the Bible College in the mission.

“Before I have played for many gospel artistes and also those in circular music before I gave my life to Christ and that decision changed my life for better. I have been through many challenges and God has seen me through and to him I give all the glory for taken control of my life.”

In his advice, he urged all upcoming gospel musicians to be focused and get ready to sacrifice for greater tomorrow. He added, “humility is the key so, be ready to learn by listening to corrections.  Keep your head straight, be confident and surrender yourself to Jesus Christ who will change your life for good.”
