In later years of his life, he joined the New Realm Baptist Church, Ojo. While there, the music director, Pastor Farinde, saw something different in him, took interest and worked with him on his music. This divine opportunity helped bring out Michael’s gift quite impressively. He was quick to learn and adapt to new trends of singing the gospel through music.
He is graduate of Performing Arts from the University of Ilorin, Kwara state Nigeria. He took his music career to another level while he was in the University and was noted by his department and the university at large. The university provided the much needed environment for him to express God’s gift in him so he took part in so many performances within and outside the university of Ilorin.
He won multiple awards while in school and this marked the beginning of an appreciated ministry/career in music for him. The awards he won in school include; Best overall Opera Singer of the department of Performing Arts, Best male Opera Palmist Award, Best Male Vocalist from In His Presence Awards, Best male Singer High Praise Award, Best Male vocal Award from the Palmist Awards, Merit Award (NYSC Bayelsa State 2004), Best Male Vocal Singer (Psalmist Award 2013) to mention but a few. All these he said is to the glory of God.
