Philip Olaomi is an intense worshiper with a strong passion to bring down the presence of God through worship. Philip discovered his love and passion for music at a tender age of 14 when he joined his local church choir as a tenor singer with deep roots in classical music. He started writing songs and playing the trumpet at the age of 18. He later added the saxophone to the list of instruments he plays proficiently.
Philip Olaomi in 2019 bagged two trophies at the African Gospel Music Awards (AGMA 2019) for: ‘Best Male Performance of the year’ and ‘Best Gospel Song Writer Of the Year’. Following the release of his 8-track album, GRATEFUL: an original composition with various genres and hints of traditional rhythms – it is available on all digital platforms.
Philip recently premiered the anticipated visual for “Hallowed Be Your Name,” a fan- favorite that stands out from his debut project ‘GRATEFUL’ released in 2018. With this new video release, Philip Olaomi continues to set new heights for himself. His passion for music has also translated into various musical experiences.
It was not difficult for the grace of the Lord upon his life to be discovered as he was appointed as the Choir Director of this college fellowship where he met his sweetheart and they are happily married with three beautiful children. He currently serves as the assistant choir director at his church, The Gospel Faith Mission International, House Of Change Baltimore Maryland, a fast grow church in the Baltimore metropolitan area.
When asked about how music fits into his ministry, he said: “Music is the way I relate more intimately with God. It is my undenied and sure access to God. I have seen Him move quickly when I lift my voice in praise. “ Philip Olaomi was born to Christian parents and have upheld Christian values from his youth, but the time came in his teenage years when it became obvious that he needed to know God for himself. It was at this point that God became (in his own words): “My God” and it has been an awesome experience since then.

Philip Olaomi’s Christian journey in Christ is well explained in the song lyrics below:
“In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.
Philip Olaomi’s desire in ministry is to be a vessel of honor that God will be proud to present at any time for His glory and honor as explained in 2 Tim 2:20.
2 Tim 2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor.
