Plans are on top gear for the 80th birthday of Miliki king, Evangelist Ebenezer Obey-Fabiyi.

Chief Commander, as the music genius is fondly called, is warming up to the octogenarian league as he turns 80 on April 3.


News sources have reliably gathered that preparation by family, fans, and associates is in top gear to celebrate Obey’s big day.

According to reports, Obey’s birthday will also see the Juju music maestro being honoured for his immense contribution to the music industry in Nigeria and Africa at large.

The birthday celebration committee intimated that the leadership and members of Decross Gospel Mission will host Obey, who is also the General Overseer of the church, family, and dignitaries from all walks of life in a thanksgiving service on April 3, at the church headquarters, at 13/15 Oyewole Road, Iyana-Ipaja, Agege, Lagos.

It was also gathered that a grand reception will be held on April 8, at the popular Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) event hall, in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

In a bid to acknowledge the unprecedented role of the living legend in the industry, organisers of Headies Awards have concluded plans to celebrate the music icon with a classy event on May 22, at Eko Hotel and Suites, Lagos. The event will feature the convergence of the young generation of artistes and others to honour the music icon, just as a new biography of Obey will be launched at the event.
