FUNMI AYINKE Reflects On Her New Life @ 40

Funmi Ayinke is 40 and fabulous. That is what the invite to her birthday dinner says. It is a wine-and-dine affair.


Funmi deserves to celebrate. Funmi deserves to be celebrated. She has done well for herself. She has had an accomplished career. She is many things rolled into one. She is an Engineer. She is a musician.



And she is a mentor to thousands of young people.

Last year, October, she was tagged as Nigeria's power house by Spotlight USA Radio. And in December, she launched her new career in Reality Speaking, after 20 years in Humanitarian services. Last February, Funmi, whose real name is Funmilayo Waheed-Adekojo, released her Carry Me video to celebrate the Valentine's season of love.


How does she feel @ 40, we asked her? "I don't really know. I can't say. I still have a lot to do, like it's a challenge to do more for myself and my environment. I also appreciate God that I escaped whatever it is the enemies had thrown my way and at me from age zero to 39 years.


I am feeling like an achiever, but one that still has a lot more to accomplish. That is how I feel."


Funmi Ayinke is juggling all her roles well. She is doing so well in music. She made her entry into Music not too long ago and she is making waves. She is an accomplished lady of substance, who has her fingers in many pies. She is what you could call an all-rounder.


She has always been an inspiration to the youth. Funmi. She sings well. She performs well. She entertains whenever she performs.


She released an official video of her song, Carry Me. The official video shows one thing about Funmi. She is blessed.


How did music start for her? What was the attraction? She told CityPeople about it recently.


“Many don’t know I started singing during the Endsars crisis in Nigeria,” she explained to CityPeople.


“I wanted to go for a meeting in Lagos, from Abuja, and I was told there was lockdown. No flight was coming to Lagos and all that.


I told my driver to take me to the studio. That is how I began to sing and since then I have been singing.


That was just it.”


What was the attraction? It was to add my voice to the collective voice of Nigerian youths that we are all tired of the country’s situation.


I know that we can not all be on the street. So, I wanted to use music to add my voice.”


If I write, the majority won’t read, but I know they love music, and that was why I did that song titled IT IS OUR TIME


Talking to everyone both within and diaspora, that it is our time to all come home and touch our homes and change our country.


Within the space of a year, I did my album titled THE JOURNEY.


That got me an award for the best motivational singer in West Africa by the West Africa Gospel Forum; the motivational song of the year was given to one of the tracks in my album titled” I can make it“


In my album, I featured the likes of Jaywon, Obey Ebenezer, Magnito and Klintz De Drunk


“After this, I noticed another problem in the country: we don’t love ourselves.


Lack of love has been the main problem of every crisis in the world and our country.”


In my Album, I have a track titled “The only thing that Matters “.


But, l felt one track about love wasn’t enough to pass my message, and the terrible thing I heard our youth saying up and down is this annoying world from the gate of hell tagged as “Breakfast‘.


That means the devil is hypnotising the young minds not to believe in a long-lasting marriage, and the majority don’t think there is anything called true love when someone like me is enjoying Sixteen years of blissful union with four kids, and I still have my career


I told myself it was time again to pass another message via music


All five tracks are Love songs, which we have titled CARRY ME. I just released the official video.




In the space of fewer than two years in music, I got invited to O2 Arena in London, which I went to last year in November, and the performance was lit.


To God be the glory as I keep the fire burning and I also keep rekindling the fire of hope to our people.


God alone takes all the glory


I have released an EP titled NEW DAWN


CityPeople can authoritatively reveal that Funmi is not only doing well, she is also enjoying her career in music.


As she turns 40, CityPeople wishes her a happy birthday and the whole world is waiting for Funmi's next project. We would be the first to tell you.


Stay tuned. Stay blessed.
