‘Birthday Boy’ Evangelist (Professor) Ebenezer Obey Fabiyi (MFR) with G.O. Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye
There is no
event like it in a very long while in the entire Ogun State. It was a grand event. It was a grand moment. It was a
grand celebration. It was the moment when the power of music played its
eminence over every other powers from politics, business down to diplomacy and

It was the moment when politics, religion, business, diplomacy and other
disciplines came in total humility to appreciate and bestow credibility on the
power and art of music.

Moreover, it
was a Monday morning (April 3rd). Yet, the crowd was massive. The
surge of eminent Nigerians into the ancient city of Abeokuta in Ogun State—South
West Nigeria was overwhelming. The venue was Chapel of Christ The Glorious
(CCGK)  Interdenominational
church situated inside the Obasanjo Presidential Library at NNPC area of Abeokuta.

 It was the day of Ebenezer. In Hebrew language,
Ebenezer means “Rock or stone of help”.
But in Nigerian social language, Ebenezer
simply means OBEY. OBEY simply means Juju. Juju simply means Miliki. Miliki is a rare brand of music.
On this
Monday morning in the fourth month of the year 2017, the creator of the Juju Miliki brand of Music, the
Commander and Professor Emeritus of music who is equally an Evangelist of our
Lord Jesus Christ turned 75. It was a
glorious day when the world dropped everything to celebrate Evangelist (Prof) Ebenezer Olasupo Remilekun Obey Fabiyi (MFR)
before children, family, friends and well-wishers.
