The Oniya's is set to exploit Nigerian Culture to foreign countries

By Ajibade Alabi

Nigeria and African culture is set to be explore to European and American continent from the richest socio-cultural endowment continent  *AFRICA* by *Evangelist Omotayo Paul Oniya (NIM)* a gospel artiste,song writer, scriptwriter, movie actor,  musician and his wife  *Evangelist (Mrs) Ceecee Ibukunoluwa Oniya* and their group members, who have made their intention of making sure the other continents experience the rich culture of the African continent

Though as a  gospel musicians, they did not forget their culture and tradition hence the export of Nigeria and African culture to Europe and other continents

 since this couple are not new as far as Entertainment is concerned after dinning with the icons personalities that matters in the country

these couple especially *Evangelist Omotayo and Ceecee Oniya( Oyinbo Yorùba)* did not forget their african root of culture and tradition as they are always within the corridors of traditional rulers.

Visitation to *Her Royal Majesty Regent Margret Olayinka Adebodun Akosile, the Olojoda of Oda, in Ondo State* , confirmed their closeness to the culture and tradition of their people via grassroots and in appreciation to the visit  *Regent Margret Olayinka Adebodun Akosile* informed them that there is a lot of vast cheap land for companies and private investment or individuals which according to the Regent is to promote Nigeria art and culture.

The couple also visited *HRM Oba Samson Adesanya* , the *Onijagba of Ijagba Sagamu Remo, Ogun State. Nigeria* 

" We are still growing, part of what we want to do is to export Nigeria and Africa culture and tradition to the rest of the world and as we have started , we are not going to relent on our oars as we strive to make this year 2022 even better than the previous years especially in the aspect of culture and tradition"


The couple  matched their words with action when  they have an award recognize sitting Executive Governor of Ogun State, *Prince Dapo Abiodun* for his  good works and synergy towards Yoruba heritage, art and culture, music and drama movies in Yoruba land and across the region of Ogun State and Nigeria in general .

Way back in 2020 the couple had an opportunity to meet with *Evangelist Mrs Tope Alabi* and her husband/ manager, *Mr Soji Alabi* in a musical concert program in London and it was a fulfilled experience for them.

" It was a good experience to be on the same stage with Evangelist Mrs Tope Alabi"

And Evangelist Mrs Tope Alabi herself can not but acknowledged their dexterity and versatility as far as mixing culture with gospel music and acting is concerned.

We also learned that the wife *Evangelist (Mrs) Ceeeee Ibukunoluwa Oniya* the " *Oyinbo Yorùbá* " as she is populaly addresed by many (since she is a white woman) can also sing not only in Yoruba language,  read and write in yoruba, cook Yoruba delicacies and can also sing in *Igbo language,* Other African  languages such as *Lingala* from , *Kinshasa Congo* this is an exceptional talent and they are planning to take Nigerian culture across the board of inter-continents to positively touch many lives of many diaspora(overseas) with the good things they are doing and they still  have many things which they  would be unveiling soon.
