IBADAN – Manchester-based Gospel singer, Bolaji Awoyemi, popularly known as Queen BeeJay De Grace, on Sunday, April 25, 2021 said God directed her to take the offer of Patroness from Cherubim and Seraphim Church Movement (CSMC), Ibadan Zonal District Central Choir.
The gospel crooner stated this at the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church, Agbala Ayo, Felele Straight, Ibadan, Oyo State where she was honoured and decorated as CSMC, Ibadan Zonal District Central Choir Patroness.
Appreciating the leadership of CSMC choir, BeeJay maintained that the position was an encouragement for her to commit more to the body of Christ.
“When I was informed about the honour, there was an outright rejection from me. It is because I am a young woman, I am in my early 40s and I felt the position is for elderly women. But, when God ministered to me, I was left with no other choice than to take the offer”, Bolaji said.
BeeJay De Grace also added, ” I understand the nitty-gritty of responsibility, I pray to God to help me as it is a great task. I believe this is beyond just appointment and I’ll use this opportunity to work better for God. May God help me”, she said.
She thanked the organization for finding her worthy of such a lofty honour, adding that she would devote the rest of her life to God, the promotion of a better society and philanthropic gestures.
The international singer assured of her commitment to the ideals of CSMC, who invested her life in selflessness, maintenance of peace, promotion of truth and harmony.
Chairman of the CSMC, Ibadan Zonal District Central Choir, Most Snr. Apostle Abayomi Ayeni JP, while decorating the new Patroness, said that Bolaji has shown sincerity and commitment in leadership and was worthy of the honour from the Zonal Choir members.
Most Snr. Apostle Ayeni stated further that BeeJay De Grace has done enough to be celebrated as a member of the Month District choir.
