The Creative side of the Adefarasin Family



When you hear the name Adefarasin, the first thing to come to mind is Ministry. This is understandably so because of the Metropolitan Paul Adefarasin and his elder brother Wale Adefarasin.

Wale Adefarasin is the Senior Pastor and General Overseer and Guiding Light Assembly (GLA) while his younger brother Paul Adefarasin is the founder and Senior Pastor of House On The Rock.

The Adefarasin brothers are also televangelists. Paul hosts a weekly program Something Is About to Happen and Wale co-hosts Heart of The Matter.

Needless to say, these brothers have embarked on similar paths in life.

However, the next generation of the Adefarasin clan is taking on a different direction.

Adeolu Adefarasin, the son of Pastor Wale is forging his own path in the entertainment industry, Nollywood to be precise.

He’s been featured in many movies & series such as Skinny Girl in Transit, Wedding Party, LAGOSA and is now set to host a new talk show Men Talk Real Talk.

Temi Dollface who is a relative to the family has also taken interest in the entertainment industry and quite frankly has built a name for herself through her musical skills.

She’s an award winning electro-pop-soul singer with hits like Pata Pata and Beep Beep.

It’s great to see the family doing well in the different paths they’ve chosen, whether on the pulpit or creating visual and melodious content, at the end of the day, all that matters is the social impact of their work.

    As the Sherlock that I is na, your girl had to come through. So I went and found the ‘meaning’ of the post you people have been finding.
    Hia you’ar.

    Since y’all didn’t comment on the first post… in fact you probably didn’t notice or open it – despite the Adefarasin written gbagada in the header o! BN had to get innovative and they now sandwiched him between his more popular familik. Mission accomplished, people have sha opened the post.

    Now how can a grown man like this be trying to swerve us with his family name? Dude, it’s not a good look. Plus not all of us are cool with y’alls little family ‘business’. It would have been nice to continue on a clean slate you already started with on SGIT. but it’s none of my business tho…lol.

    GLA is Uche Pedro’s church; So picture this exhibit:
    1. They belong in the same department in church
    2. They had a departmental meeting last sunday and the departmental head gave a sermon on the importance of helping your fellow brethren. That is using the resources at your disposal to lift up the brethren.
    3. Uche decided to cook up press for the dude even though there’s nothing so press worthy
    4. This would have actually worked but you see Uche just had to pass to a staff who came up with the cheesiest writeup ever after all it’s BN fam. They’ll eat it up.
    Relax I’m only joking….. (but I’m not)
