“Success is not accidental but intentional.” These are the words that actor, singer and super model lives by. A consistent jinks breaker, an exceptional mind, a passionate young man who symbolizes diligence and sacrifice, Onafuye Abolade Bobby was born into the family of Mr. and Mrs. Onafuye. Due to his parents love for music, little Abolade listened to Bob Marley, Lucky Dube, Ron Kenoly, Fela Kuti, Sunny Ade, Michael Jackson among others.
This can be said to be the solid foundation in his musical adventure . At the tender age of 4, Bobby as he is globally known, made a decision that he won’t only listen to good music but produce good music. This decision gave birth to a musical group called “FB Boys” which he started with his elder brother to entertain family and friends.
Consequently, in the year 2007, Onafuye Abolade delved further into the musical sphere alongside his brother and other relatives by forming a christian musical group known as “Hallelujah Crew” which was later renamed “Masters’ Mind”. Eventually, they became the musical quartet known as “The Masters’ Mind Empire (TMME).
” I believe music is life. I draw my inspiration from life – the happenings in my life and in the lives of people around me”. Bobby revealed the above as the motive for his new hit single “Global”. He is also doing well as an actor, model and a TV host.
Concurrently, it may interest you to know that Onafuye Abolade Bobby is the Mr. University Africa Ambassador (Mr University Africa 3rd Runner-Up 2018) Among many other benefits to be of service to self and humanity , the office grants him an opportunity to be a part of the One Word Africa Campaign on creating awareness for DXLESIA. He has modelled for top Nigerian brands like GLO, TVC and a DSTV Now Ambassador (DSTV Mobile App). Bobby is currently working on a television show with AIKTV and a movie which is set to drop in 2019.
Furthermore, his opinion on religion can be seen as exceptional. In his words” I believe so much in the creator. A creation is a proof of the creator. I don’t see myself as ‘Religious’ But I’m more focused on my personal walk with my FATHER; The creator of the heaven and earth” He concluded.
Onafuye Abolade Bobby is definitely a name to watch out for in the entertainment industry!
