Its been Months #InspireSunday Last Segment Was Published , We are Up again, Brighter and Bettter.We Hope You Have Enjoyed our Highly Spiritual Contents….Okay, Back to the High point of today’s Episode of #InspireSunday, We have a Super Duper Gospel Producer and Artist in the Building today, He goes by the name “Tolucci”.
Alright to start With, Who is “Tolucci”? Introduce Yourselves in a Short Bio
Tolucci : Tolucci is an embodiment of many things depends on whatever demand is activated at each point. I refer to myself as a Kingdom Based Multimedia Content Producer & Entrepreneur. Breaking it down, I’m a MusicProducer, Music Video Director, Music Minister, Conference Speaker and youwon’t be wrong if you say Evangelist. I’m actually an ordained Minister into Music, Media and Entertainment. Though I keep that coded but can’t deny the fact that I function within that grace and calling. I am the CEO of KOINONIA Entertainment and Convener of Music According 2D Streets N Scriptures (M.A.S.S). I’m Mathematically trained and Financially groomed but extremely Ministry inclined.
What Initiated The Name “Tolucci” ?
Tolucci: Tolucci was initiated in the music class while in secondary school by a friend. I was very good on the piano back then and made tremendous effort to compose my own Church/Organ classical pieces. It was one of those playful sessions when they tried to distort my real names Tolulope to sound like other great composers we studied in theoretical music – Beethoven, Handel, Mozart, J.S Bach and the likes.
How Many Songs Do you have to your Credits/And How Many Artist Have You Produced For?
Tolucci: Ambitious!!…I have lost count. I have been on this road for a very long time. On song productions I have worked with notables like Segun Obe,Provabs, Nathaniel Bassey, Mike Abdul, Kore, LcBeatz etc mostly as features on other artistes and my own songs. I have also worked with several campus based choir albums and a lot of new entrants, who are still trying to learn the ropes. I function more as a Project Producer not a Commercial one. My multi skilled nature enables me to oversee different parts of a media project whether it’s a Music album, Documentary, Live concert recording, TV Show, Short Movie or full feature. So I might not cut your exact picture of the Producer you seek. Lol.
What Has Been the Major Challenge of Working As a Producer and Artist?#Smile
Tolucci: It’s like asking about the challenges of being a Pastor/Worship Leader. They are very much intertwined. It’s the same process to me. Being a Producer/Artiste affords me the luxury of being in control of the entire creative process. But the major challenge is most of the time you end up devoting the greater percentage of your time to making other people other than yourself. It also leaves you with no playtime, as you have to keep the two outlets very active. It’s sometimes a very tough balance, especially for my own kind of artistry that is very outreach/road trip inclined. Maintainingthat indoor studio rat versus on the road ministry lifestyle could be tough. I mean, very tough.
What Inspires Your Music/Production?
Tolucci: Well from the mindset that inspiration comes from only 2 sources. GOD inspires my music production. I also read and study a lot. Existing works of masters
What do Regard as True Worship?
Tolucci: Worship is not a style of church music but ultimately, a lifestyle of total reverence, dependence and submission to God. ‘’I beseech you therefore brethren ……’’
Time for Some Hot Questions, What has been the Most Embarrassing Moment For You?
Tolucci: that will be many years back where I was invited to minister at a bigyouth function at OAU. I travelled down and wasn’t called up at all till the wee hours. On enquiry from the organizing Minister, he was like ‘’ my brother…’’wait for your time’’ so loudly, almost into the microphones. Everybody just turned in my direction. This was the same guy who was practically on my case to come for his event. I couldn’t reconcile his new attitude. I didn’t know I was invited as a stop-gap measure if eventually, their ‘’BIG ARTISTE’’ does not show up. I almost froze at that spot. But I just consoled myself in the Lord…LoL. To everything under the heaven, there is a time and a season. That’s part of what has formed my resolve till today. I don’t beg to express God’s gifting’s. If I’m truly called and function in my place, there will always be a demand.
What has been the Most Memorable Moment For You?
Tolucci: That will be MASS Concert Tour 1.0 at Oshogbo, Osun State. OMG! That was one awesome night of warfare. I mean real warfare and the ease with which God showed up was scary. It gets me Shivery when I recollect some particular scenarios that threatened to stop that move until God showed up and 5,868 youths raised some awesome praise all night. Its one of my most humbling moments till date.
Alright That Was Fun, Anything New Your Fans Should Expect From You? Artist You Would be Working With in The Nearest Future?
Tolucci: Well, I don’t have fans, I have friends. There are no celebrities in myworld. I have friends, co-laborers, partners and associates. A lot of stuff is tobe expected from me as an individual and my company – KOINONIA Entertainment. So many song productions are in the works and my newest collection of recordings from the periodical WorshipUnplugged Series and other random online releases are being compiled for release to stores. We have already commenced the legwork on the 3rd (Trinitee) Edition of MASS Concert Tour 3.0 at a new city/state that will be announced soon. MASS Gigs will commence soon after the elections and this is strictly campus focused. Smaller and more compact but same quality of music and expression. This will be organized in partnership with campus based music groups with affiliation to us.
Within the KOINONIA Company, we are already tidying up the script of our first full-length movie to be shot last quarter of this year. While other TV focused productions are also on going at the moment. I will definitely be working with a whole lot of people, established and new. I’m presently working in the studios Oyindamola Adejumo (Baba Sala’s Daughter) of ‘’Baba Mo ohun ti Ose’’ fame, Sade Odetunde of RCCG National Choir Leadership on new praise oriented productions.
Your Comment on The Gospel Industry So far, Advice and Prayer?
Tolucci : A lot has been done, a lot still needs to be done, all hands must be on deck. #TimeIsShort. Ours is not showbiz, it is Warfare. Our Stock in trade is not Currencies but SOULS. All those that aren’t ready for a life of denial should gladly PORT.
You Have Any One You Want to Shout-out To?
Tolucci: Shout out to all my ministry friends and covenant partners over the years. I will not fail to mention the army of young people who volunteer annually on several music outreaches across the southwest. May we all not loose our heavenly reward. Amen.
