A sonorous contemporary and gospel songstress,
Patricia Temitope Alabi was conceived on the 27th of October,1970. She was conceived in Lagos state, Nigeria, and she was the only girl God given to her family some years ago.

Tracing back to her secondary school days, somewhere in the range of 1982 and 1984, Tope Alabi joined the Jesters International, a group at Ibadan for her adoration and enthusiasm for music and show. She picked up her first experience of dramatization there. Tope Alabi is a local of Yewa, Imeko of Ogun State.

Tope Alabi further proceeded onward in her education because she was always mindful of her destination in life and because her parents, Pa Joseph Akinyele Obayomi and Madam Agnes Kehinde Obayomi, didn't tolerate slackness from any of their children.  Tope Alabi studied Mass Communication and graduated in 1990.


Before  Tope Alabi finally surrendered her totality to CHRIST and took the cross of a full-time gospel singer, she  has worked as correspondent at NTA Ibadan and NTA channel7, Lagos. She got her groove back on in theater art profession and joined the prestigious “Alade Aromire Theater Group” in 1994. This was where she capitalized on her talent as an actress and singer.

Her voice stands her out of the crowd with its uniqueness. She has over 350 movie soundtracks and 8 albums in one decade and has performed on different stage, locally and internationally.

Sometimes Around February 2017 In A Chat
With Punch’s Saturday Beats, Tope Alabi Revealed:

I have been through thick and thin in this industry and I thank God for everything. Things have not always been rosy for me especially when it comes to gospel music. The major hindrance gospel music faces is that people do not want to help gospel musicians and this is very discouraging. If you go to meet anyone to help you to finance your project, no one would be willing to help out. Also, it is not easy receiving songs from God, putting them together coupled with the fact that you don’t have enough money to go to the studio.
“I have been in situations whereby I would beg churches before I could perform for free. If God was not with me, I know what would have happened to my career. Even this programme that I am showcasing, it is only my husband and I that are funding the concert. Things are easier for secular musicians as they can easily find sponsors for their events but no one wants to put money down for a gospel show. I don’t know why they don’t want to promote the gospel of God. There were days I would go for three days’ church programme and sing my heart out and after the event, the organisers would just tell me to go home that they would send money to my bank account but I would never receive any alert. That is how I started; I was just managing in life until God decided to bless me. I bless God for bringing me to this level and I want to say a big thank you to Him and that is the essence of the concert I am staging.”
