ABDUL Fatai Abiodun Bello is bent on giving new life to Islamic gospel music so that it can be on the same level with hip-hop and other genres of music. “Playing religious music does not mean music lovers shouldn’t enjoy danceable and rhythmic sounds,” he said. I’m a Muslim and not a boxed up person. My music is inspirational and would surely lift you up and appreciate God.”

Khaolaq, as he his fondly called in the music world, is from Ilorin, Kwara State and he has been gradually carving a niche for himself. Thus far, he has featured in many hip-hop.

Signed onto Waslat Music and Films international, Khaolaq has become a most sought after musician particularly in religious circles and banking on the success of his debut album, he is veering towards making Islamic music popular among non- Muslims.

“Whether Christian or Islam, people should be able to dance and get inspirational vibes from what they listen to. My kind of music is not conservative because I have rap, jazz and dance hall in it,” Khaolaq enthused.
