“I was a gospel artiste some years back. And I had some experience with ladies. I was in the choir and I had stuff with about four choristers and I was sacked from the church. You know when you sing in church and you are playing keyboard people get inspired. And, when I came into the secular world, the whole thing was just crowded. It was a lot. I went for therapy. I needed to get out of that space because it was very distracting.”
The music star also admitted that he is closer to ladies than to men because he was raised by a single mother. In his words:

Genuine Christians should not participate in Wizkid, Davido concerts - Joshua Mike-Bamiloye
Nigerian gospel music producer and son to gospel filmmaker, Joshua Mike Bamiloye, has now sparked an online debate after sharing his opinion on Christians who attend secular music concerts.
Taking to his official Twitter page, the music producer explained how he does not think genuine Christians should participate in concerts by secular musicians such as Davido, Wizkid, Rema and more.
Not stopping there, Joshua went ahead to rightly predict that some people would argue over his stance. According to him, people who are guided by the Holy Spirit should understand how to set boundaries.
