As gospel music styled secular singer, Yinka Ayefele arrived the country Tuesday, following a six-week musical tour of the United States, there appeared to be a ‘dent’ on the emotion of the artiste, whose fulfilment of the concert was partially shattered by the disappearance of
three of his band boys.
According to the statement released by his publicist, David Ajiboye, Ayefele and his band left the
country on September 2, to perform at Washington, Maryland, Baltimore, New York, Atlanta, Houston and Dallas.
Only for 3 of his band boys to abscond - Ojoyido Adegbenga Ezekiel (Keyboardist), Solomon Olugbenga Motimoke (Vocalist) and Olusola Kayode Isaac (vocalist).
Olusola Kayode Isaac defected at the LaGuardiala Airport, New York on Monday, 14th October on his way from Houston with three other members of the band.
Ojoyido Adegbenga was said to have disappeared from the group at the Howard Johnson Inn on Rockaway Boulevard, New York on Tuesday, 15th October, while the third man Solomon Motimoke (Yatty), left the band while still at Washington DC on 11th October.
Reports say the ‘gospel tungba’ crooner, has written to the United States Homeland Security to track and deport the three guys who defected at the tail-end of the inter city concert.
In a mail sent to the US agency, Ayefele urged the department to look for the defectors and act accordingly, so as to serve as a lesson to others.
