John Francis Olajide also known as Johnny Praise is a dynamic praise and worship leader.
Apart from this he loves creativity in all ramification of the word, churning out great messages and helping to develop the minds of the people in his messages and songs.
His passion for the sector started quite early and he is ready to tell anyone who cares to listen that creativity actually runs in the family. Born in the United States but raised in Ibadan, Nigeria.
John was raised in a family that loves music. He was influenced by his uncle and aunt who are gospel artistes. He was also influenced by a lot of gospel musicians in Nigeria like Gbenga Wise, Soji Isreal and Tosin Martins.
Internationally, he is inspired by gospel artistes like Israel Houghton, Donnie Mclurkin and Chris Tomlin. He released his debut album titled (Created Me) in 2013 and follow up album called (Only You) in 2015.
“Growing up at a very tender age, I was always active in church. I was always involved in church activities, mostly church choir and school choir. I remember back then at the house fellowship, I used to attend, I was in a group then and we used go around singing.
Currently, he is working on some singles like “Joy Praise Medley” And “Oluwa Ese Revamp” which will be available later this year 2020.
