They were unveiled at an event and presented with cheques of One million naira each as sign-on fees except Kunle Ajayi who signed on for free.
According to Kunle Ajayi, the mission to start up a record label started as a vision of Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
“He found out that everywhere he has been to, he hears joyful noise and he discovered that there are talents in RCCG that we can use to preach and sell to the world and to bring about change to the world,” Ajayi said.
“Daddy is looking for a way to project these talents and he supports it in every way. It is a vision that he is into.
“The aim is not just to entertain but to bring change into the world of entertainment.”
It was also revealed that the artistes would be going on a tour of Europe and Nigeria in a couple of months.
Director of the label, Pastor Lanre Oyegbola said
“the purpose of RCCG setting up One Hallelujah Records is for those that can actually sing meaningful songs that can bring down the presence of God to have a platform, hence we decided to sign these 10 bubbling music ministers on the OHR imprint.”
Leke Adeboye who was also there said it’s been long overdue since RCCG should own a record label.
“We are sitting on a volcano of talents and we don’t want it to erupt the wrong way so we got to channel the energy the right way and obviously with the right backing we might start small but we can only grow bigger from where we are starting.”
