About the group
although it started with a group of people of friends over 30 years in the neighbourhood in alagomeji in yaba as teenagers doing accapella.
The gospel music has not been financially rewarding as one would expect but it has been a fulfilling journey
The group has two albums to their credit
freeborn group has affected a lot of people through their music. in a recent music concert powered by kings church led by Pastor Dami Oluwatoyinbo in Main Auditorium of University of Lagos Tagged: Shout it Loud, Pastor Tolu Dami Oluwatoyinbo the wife of the pastor of Kings Pastor Dami Oluwatoyinbo said she she got saved by songs sang by the group when she was 13 years old.
To them their kind of music is more of the impact it makes in peoples live’s than the popularity it brings them .
in the words of one of the member of the group
you are going to get lost in the House of God within the teenage into the youth age so their kind of music will appeal to you while still talking to you ,while still chasting you , while still entertaining you while still talking to you, make you for give yourself brain as you dey go because at the end of the day the media is trying to get your attention
Their salvation story was that they loved music but music brought them to God
At one time the group transcended from a 13 number to four . it’s been a roller coaster ride according to one of the members of the group named mr ladi wilkki he said at a time they had issues with people not paying times, broke times , people pay you peanut times , some times the church not appreciating you because they feel your music is not bornagain and some issues with airplay because they once released a song that had the name of Jesus. Fugitive produced by cobhams mentioned 70 times. Some media houses said they were not going to air it but they did a remix increasing the number of times the name of Jesus was mentioned.

cobhams , kore and rooftop mcs
Upcoming event with freeeborn is a come back concert that will be holding in Lagos
