Popular gospel singer, Yinka Ayefele is set to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the ghastly auto accident that confined him to a wheel chair and changed his life forever.

According to the musician, in appreciation of God’s mercy, he has concluded plans to mark two decades of the accident with a week-long series of activities in Oyo and Ekiti states between December 12 and December 17.

Ayefele said he believes the incident, though a sad one, was what transformed his life and he has to reach out to people in order to appreciate God’s magnanimity in his life over the last two decades.

Hence, on Tuesday, December 12, Ayefele and his friends will be in his hometown of Ipoti, Ekiti State, to commission a multi-million naira hall he will be donating to his alma mater, Ipoti High School. Also on that day, the musician, through his Yinka Ayefele Foundation, will be putting smile on the faces of 100 women of Ipoti stock by empowering them with various cash gift.

Ayefele and his team will also visit various orphanages, old people’s homes and hospitals, particularly, the University College Hospital, UCH in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, where he will present buses, cash gift and food items to the less privileged in the homes and patients in the hospital.

And the climax of the remembrance will be on Sunday December 17 with a thanksgiving service, launching of the 20th year remembrance album and public presentation of his first book titled ‘You and Your Spine’.

The event will hold at the Music House, Challenge, Ibadan.

On December 12, 1997, Ayefele was involved in a ghastly motor accident along Ibadan/Abeokuta Road. The tragic event in which he lost the use of legs has been the motivation for many of his songs.

Ayefele is a recipient of over 200 awards, including the Member of the Order of the Niger, MON, a recognition bestowed on him by former president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.a
