DIZZY K FALOLA is a Nigerian pop musician and gospel artiste.
EARLY LIFE AND POP CAREER. He lost his parents young. He took his undergraduate studies at the University of Ife. He met Tony Okoroji in the mid-1980s and soon began working with him. His album Baby Kilode became an instant hit. Other albums included Sweet Music and Excuse Me Baby. With Chris Okotie, Felix Liberty and Jide Obi he stimulated Nigeria's emerging music industry, but his last secular hit was African Jamboree, produced by Bisade Ologunde.
GOSPEL MUSIC MINISTRY. In 1989 he became a born-again Christian and, inspired by Ebenezer Obey, gave up a recording contract with EMI Music to turn to gospel music. He started his Christian recording in 1994. He toured with ministries through Europe and the United States, and his gospel music albums sold in the United States, Canada, Sweden, and throughout Africa. These five albums were: My Joy, Power in the Blood, The Healing Songs, I'm Blessed, Marvellous. From 2001 he began visiting Nigeria again, and in 2002 came to Lagos for the official African launch of Dizzy K Gospel Music Ministries with Centre of my Joy. He now lives in London and owns a studio that publicises youth problems. He is married with four children.
