Gospel musician, Abolaji Banjoko, aka Beejay Sax, has said that though gospel music can be challenging, he considers it to be a higher calling.
Asked how the gospel music industry can rise from the current challenges it is facing, he told Saturday Beats, “In my opinion, keeping our focus on the reason we do what we do is so important. It can get frustrating but we must press towards the mark for the prize of the high calling.”
Speaking on his forthcoming concert, Beejay Sax Live, set to hold on Sunday, May 15, 2022, the saxophonist said, “2022 will be one to remember. This year, we are going all out. All I can really say is, come expectant and be ready to praise like never before.
“The testimonies from past editions of the event are countless. There has been healing, job breakthroughs, and souls have been won for Christ.”
On how he discovered his calling as a gospel musician, he said, “I was a music student in junior school, and I took particular interest in the saxophone. Over time, I realised it was more than just a talent, but an assignment and a ministry, and I ran with it.”
Speaking about how he has evolved as a music minister, he said, “With times and seasons, come growth. A lot has been learnt and we are still learning. More importantly, I have been ‘graced’ to walk in my path and fulfil my calling without losing my essence, which is Jesus.”
