MEET DELE PAIMO, THE FIRST SON OF CHIEF LERE PAIMO MFR (EDA ONILE OLA)
With sons and fathers bears an inexplicable connection and imprint of a father that will forever remain on the son. A son will always replicate the greatness that has been instilled in him by his father; this is the case of Dele Paimo.
Chief Lere Paimo MFR remains a titan who has distinguished himself as a remarkably talented actor for the last 60years. Eda Onile Ola is indisputably a fulfilled man that has successfully instilled greatness in his first son, Dele Paimo.
Unknown to many, Dele Paimo is a sublimely gifted international gospel singer. His voice is beautiful and sonorous, sounds like sun birds and bees. It’s rare to find a male with a soprano voice like his.
Growing up in Ibadan, the capital city of Oyo State, Dele Paimo started singing as a small boy. He eventually joined the choir in his church at a very tender age and never stopped singing since then. Singing became his passion and it propelled him to become a professional singer.
He created his first gospel album, “Fullness of Joy” in 2008 and he kept the flag flying by spreading his tentacles and also improving in his passionate profession of gospel songs. No doubt, he is focused and determined to make a great a great name in his chosen career.
By the time he decided to release his second gospel album in 2015, he decided to take it a step further by going as far as South Africa and Ghana to shoot the album titled “End Time”.
Talking about his relationship with his father, Dele Paimo mentioned that his father is the most supportive and understanding man anyone could ask for. He said Chief Lere Paimo MFR always encourage him to be optimistic and be of good repute by telling him to remember the son of whom he is in all his endeavours.
By default, many people just assume that his life would be a smooth one as the first son of a veteran actor but contrary to that opinion, he had his silent battles which made it impossible for him to proceed to the university after graduating from Loyola College, Ibadan.
He disclosed that what inspired him to pursue his passion was the positively inclined people in his life who kept advising him not to give up, especially his lovely wife, Mrs. Grace Paimo. Asides the kind words of encouragement from people, he mentioned that his voice also gives him confidence that he’ll make it in his chosen profession.
Dele Paimo decided to face music professionally at the completion of his secondary school education. As mentioned earlier, In 2008 he released his first album titled “Fullness of Joy” featuring his dad, Chief Lere Paimo MFR. The Album which was released and marketed by S.T Omoola Records has three tracks namely:
- Jesu mi
- Aleselewi, Alewilese
In 2015, he raised the bar higher by recording his second album; which was shot in South Africa 🇿🇦 and Ghana 🇬🇭. The album titled “End Time” has six tracks namely:
- Opin Aye
- On the last day
- The lord has set the task before me
- God’s will
- Igbeyin Aye de
- Source of my life.
Dele Paimo is currently working on his third album titled “Glory” and it promises to be the apex of apexes, the best of the best and the primus inter pares (first among equals).
Dele Paimo is a great dancer like his father. When he isn’t singing he can be found in the kitchen preparing tantalizing recipes or reading books. Asides cooking and reading, he has a sagittarius personality which explains why he loves to travel and having adventurous experiences. He visits beach to relax, reflect and enjoy the cool breeze of the sea.
Before I conclude, let me also ask you all if you are ready for Chief Lere Paimo’s first son on your television screens. Dele Paimo intends to step in his father’s shoes by carving a niche for himself in the movie industry the way his father, Eda Onile Ola did. As you wait in anticipation for his third album, Glory; also anticipate for his first movie titled, “Irinajo Eda”. The movie is going to be epic, trust me.
Evang Dele Paimo got married to his sweetheart and fellow indigene of Ogbomoso, Mrs. Grace Paimo in 2016. They are both living happily in Ghana with their kids.
