All of the songs were compiled and mostly arranged by Pastor 'Deola Amudipe, a protégé of Pastor Tope Dada for over 30 years.


In an exclusive interview with CAC NEWS, Pastor Dada said that he feels elated and proud that the live performance of his musical works will be done today.


He stated further that; "they didn’t tell me about it. I got to know about it when they were publishing the book. This has been done for ‘white people’ in the past. My music works they are performing is even more than what has been done for some ‘white men.’ The booklet has about 127 pages. It consists of 25 songs covering 127pages. I am very elated that they are doing this when I am alive. It is a thing of pride. I must appreciate my children. I must appreciate Pastor Deola Amudipe for working on me that we should put the songs in a readable form. He published the book. Without publishing it will just die a natural dead. I have more than 1000 songs and I don’t see how we can publish everything. I must also commend my son, Tolu Tope Dada for leading the choir of the church to do this work. They had sleepless night doing this work. Everybody who comes on that day will enjoy themselves."
