Meet John Adekunle Shote
Genre:Contemporary Gospel Music

August, 2001
In his own words....
My name is John Adekunle Shote, and I am from Ijebu Igbo in Ogun State.

I graduated in 1995 from Yaba College of Technology Lagos, with a Higher National Diploma in Civil Engineering and followed that in May 2001 with a B.Sc degree in Computer Science from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

I completed the mandatory 1 year National Youth Service and served at Orire Local Government, Ogbomosho between 1995 and 1996 in Nigeria. I was recognized as Best Corper of the year 1996.

I love to sing, play indoor games, and love to travel and meet people. Helping people achieve their dreams always inspires me.

Known as "John", I arrived in the United States on May 10, 1997. I have led church choirs in many churches and Christian gatherings in the US.

In March 2001, I was on radio Performances with "ESQ" in New Jersey, United states. This is a program that is broadcast on Eko FM every Saturday in Nigeria.

My first album titled "Ranmilowo" was released March 31, 2001 and is available in all record stores .

My vision:
I am a born again Christian and I attend Fountain of Life Baptist Church, under the leadership of Pastor Raymond Fawole.

The Lord has been so good to my life, and I will not rest until I fulfill the mandate he has given to me.

I have being given the gift and talent to sing the praises of the Lord, and to tell people about the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ in the best way God has giving me.

It was not until I came to America, that the Lord arrested me, opened my eyes and showed me the only Living and True Way, by which one can come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

I started looking hungrily for a place to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth. I went to several places but was not satisfied. It was not until I went to Fountain of Life Baptist Church that I was inwardly at peace with myself. And the Lord started his purging cleansing and sanctification in my life.

It was not long; the Lord started to speak to me about the gift he has given me, which is the gift of singing, and preaching to people through songs. I started composing songs under his direction and guidance, until I came up with songs enough to make an album.

Here am I today, singing the songs the Lord has given me. "He has put a new song in my mouth. So far, this is my testimony of what the Lord has done for me, and as I am still under his guidance and leadership, I believe he has a lot of things to show me in respect to this ministry he has given me.

The Lord enabled me to organize the launching/dedication of the musical CD, and ever since then, he has being blessing me and blessing people who have listened to the CD.

I have started receiving testimonies about how the Lord, through my CD, has brought peace to their lives and how the content and the lyrics of the music, have brought laughter and have spoken to their inner mind.

I am so happy that the Lord is touching his people through this songs, and that is why I want to broadcast it everywhere, to all believers, who are waiting for the coming of the Lord.
