Muyiwa Olarewaju is a British singer, songwriter, and broadcaster. He is the first ever person in UK Christian music to be honoured with the OBE by her Majesty the Queen.
He is the one who is more than most helping to popularise the gospel by bringing it to a wider audience by mixing it up with elements of world music (from Africa, the Caribbean and Asia), soul, R&B and pop.
In 2009 he became the first-ever international act to perform on America’s popular entertainment channel BET for the prestigious annual Celebration Of Gospel show. With his group Riversongz he sold out Indigo2 at the O2 in London and Evetim Apollo with 5000 people; the first ever UK gospel act to accomplish that feat.
He has played at the largest gospel music event in the world, The Experience, attracting a 500,000+ strong audience. Muyiwa occupies a unique space as a leading gospel artist in the UK, a broadcaster and a thought leader.
Muyiwa & Riversongz is about to release their 8th project Glory songs featuring Graham Kendrick, Donnie McClurkin and more.
