INFINITY LOSES FIRST MEMBER

infinity2 

They’ve won all the gospel awards available. They’ve been referred to as the best gospel group in Nigeria. They’ve joined other acts like TY Bello, Lara George, Midnight crew, Rooftop MCs, Sammie Okposo and Nikki Laoye to give gospel music a new meaning. And they’ve managed to stay away from all the drama that often surrounds groups- until now.

 

The five-man group, who walked home with eight awards at the debut edition of the Nigeria music video awards last year and who have promised fans a second album -the follow-up to their successful olori oko debut- was on the way, may have set foot on the path to break up, following the exit of a key member from the group.

 

Kehinde Akinbode, one of the most remarkable talents in the group, has told his friends and partners he’s taking a walk, to pursue other interests. And, for obvious reasons, he will be sorely missed. He wrote the hit song olori oko – the group’s claim to fame, and their most successful song to date. Kenny, as he is called, also wrote aye ole and Jesus knows on the group’s debut album. He is also the group’s lead vocalist.

 

But, according to another group member Sam Nnogo, Kenny may be leaving, but there’s no way the group is breaking up. ‘‘Yes Kenny is leaving’’, he told AyeniTheGreat last week. ‘‘But you can’t call it a break up because Infinity will not die. The rest of us will make that a reality’’.

 

Although Kenny, who told Me he is leaving, would not go into details, those close to him say he feels the group does not ‘‘appreciate’’ him enough and, ‘‘more importantly, he feels his friends are not practicing what they’re preaching’’.

 

Infinity is made up of Nnogo Sam Uzodinma, Kehinde Akinbode, David Akintayo Adebiyi Thomas, Joseph Roberts Okougbo and Sunny Steve. It is uncertain if the remaining members will scout for a replacement for Kenny, of if the group will now continue as a four-man act.
