Sesan Odukomaiya was born on January 16, 1983 and raised in Lagos, a city in Western Nigeria. He is the first born of the Odukomaiya family that comprises of his mum, two brothers and two sisters. He was a student of the University of Lagos. He studied Economics Education.
In 2005, Bámidélé joined The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Dominion Sanctuary, Acme, Lagos as a back-up singer for the Triumphant Teens Choir under the leadership of Andrea Iyayi (who is a friend of his) and he later joined the Tehillah Choir late 2008 as also a back-up singer. While in University of Lagos, he accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior in 2002. By the Grace of God, Bámidélé is Born-again and not ashamed to say it.
In 2009, he got a call from God to go to Nairobi, Kenya as a missionary. With the aid of RCCG, Dominion Sanctuary, Lagos he was able to carry out the mission assigned to him. He was one of the pioneer missionaries who came to set up, RCCG, The Ambassadors Parish at the Hilton Nairobi. He has continued to faithfully serve as a missionary and to the Glory of God; things are working out for his good.
Inspite singing from a tender age, it had not occurred to Bámidélé to venture out as a recording artist. However in July 2010, after the RCCG, The Ambassadors’ 1st Anniversary, a burden was laid on his heart to go ahead and release an album so as to Spread The Word to the Youths.
Initially, the album was titled The Blueprint but was later changed to Spread The Word.
Spread The Word album has Hot Debut Singles like What a Mighty God, Never Stop/I L.O.V.E. U Interlude, Forever More, I Go Love You Lord. The album has 7 tracks. The songs are multi-lingual in that he sings in English, Pidgin English, Yoruba and Swahili as a way to express his life experiences. The album can be termed as an East meets West affair and is widely expected to be popular both in East and West Africa. Similarly it was recorded partly in Kenya and partly Nigeria hence the unique merge of the two cultures in his songs. He has also been featured in songs by Kenyan artists, Saint P and Rough Tone.
