Hi I'm Ayodele Alexander Akinmoladun

I was born and brought up in Nigeria,but i live in Italy I am a rap artist,song writer and composer and guess what? i'm a Mormon.

About Me

This is one thing i'm not good at doing,talking about myself, Anyway,i'm a very outgoing person,music's part of my live, Love reading,history and archeology's my thing,they give me joy, I live and work in Venice Italy, I've been a member of The church since the beginning of 2013 and so far, it's been the best of all decisions i've taken.

Why I am a Mormon

This is my testimony, I'm a recording artist and was working on an album, At that period in time,thing were going pretty fine, I had one of my songs number 10 on the italian DJ chart, Was going to meet a well known producer and get a record deal and so on.... I was in my prime,transgressing and breaking commandments, And all in a sudden,got fed up of everything including my musical career, I actually found out about certain sacrifices i needed to make in order to become famous, I got worried and started making researches, Found out a lot of things and one day surfing the internet for books, I came across The Book of Mormon, I had previously never heard or known anything about the church, my words can't really explain how much i wanted to read this book. I tried downloading the pdf version and couldn't,then a page opened up, Asking for my name,phone number and address to get a free copy at home. I usually don't give out these informations,but this time around, I did,not even knowing how,as if my body was possessed. After few minutes of giving out these informations,i received a phone call from a missionary. I wasn't expecting this call and wouldn't respond kindly to the caller, Few minutes after ending the call,my words can't explain the sense of guilt i felt, So i decided to redial the number, I could feel how excited the receiver was knowing it was me calling back, So i asked more informations about the church,and booked an appointment the next day to meet with these messengers of the Most High God,After few weeks,i finally quitted all addictions and got baptised. (that's after almost 10 years of not attending a church) I know the whole process wasn't my doing,but God's,I really could see,perceive and understand how much He loves,care and was willing to assist me during my ,moments of darkness, This experience is more than a guarantee this is the true church of God. I hope and pray my testimony will touch and change a life in the Name of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

My faith in God is still in process of growth, I realise it grows stronger when i put to practice my callings, In my ward,we are about 60 to 70 members and i'm the secretary,historian and translator. At first,I felt my callings were too much for me,but the members and missionaries have been of great help, Words can't explain how happy i feel participating in helping my ward.
