An Interesting & Dramatic Biography of Mike Bamiloye

By Charles Segun Adegbite 

The Dramatic Birth

In July 1959, when Nigeria, the most populous black nation in the world, was preparing for her independence, certain great dramatic events took place in the present day Osun State. The events confirmed the fact that life is a well thought-out drama in which everyone has certain part(s) to play; be it leading or minor roles.
Once the role(s) is(are) played and the time is over, the actor leaves the stage or is taken out for others to come in and act theirs.

Babalola left, Bamiloye came

On July 26, the then foremost revivalist in Nigeria and first General Evangelist of Christ Apostolic Church(CAC), Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola, left the stage of gospel ministry as he died.
Within that time, another child of destiny who would become a great drama evangelist across the world, was conceived, at Ilesha, in same Osun State.
It was seven years after The Redeemed Christian Church of God(RCCG) was founded by an illiterate farmer, Josiah Akindayomi, through whom God had began to unfold his new agenda; a church that would later spread across the world.

Divine Arrangements   

Nine months after, on Wednesday, April 13, 1960, this child of destiny was born at Ilesha, into the family of Pa Samuel Adejuyigbe Bamiloye and Mrs Grace Ebun Bamiloye of Ijebu-Ijesha descent, in same state.
That same year, in same Ilesha town, another son of destiny, Enoch Adejare Adeboye, who would later become the General Overseer of that RCCG to spread the church across the world, finished his secondary school.
