Biography

Introducing the venerable Mrs. Folu Moses, affectionately recognized as "Mummy Mo" within the refined echelons of the musical realm.

Hailing from Nigeria, this distinguished septuagenarian, a paragon of grace, weaves a narrative that transcends time and resonates with the timeless elegance of her musical journey.

Imbued with a penchant for hymns since her childhood, Mummy Mo graced church choirs with an exuberance that belied her years. Over half a century ago, she adorned the stage of church musicals, leaving an indelible imprint on the symphony of her life.

 On Valentine’s Day in 1971, Mummy Mo embarked on a transcontinental odyssey, traversing oceans to join her husband in the United States. A tale of fortitude unfolded as she seamlessly balanced the roles of a devoted wife and mother. The pursuit of knowledge led her to academic heights, culminating in a distinguished graduation with a BA in Accounting from North Carolina Central University.

The harmonious cadence of Mummy Mo's life encountered a dissonant note on June 24, 2017, as she bid farewell to her daughter Funke, a poignant victim of sickle cell disease. In the crucible of grief, she found solace in a divine composition, "Take all the glory," a melodic offering from the ethereal realms that became her hymn of endurance.

The dolorous journey persisted with the loss of her son Jimi in 2019. Yet, Mummy Mo’s spirit remained unassailable. Each note of sorrow was transmuted into a symphony of resilience, a testament to her unyielding faith. In the sacred halls of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Victory Temple in Raleigh, NC, where she stands as an Assistant Pastor, Mummy Mo drew strength from her unwavering faith, family, and the soothing chords of her own creation.

 

In her album, a magnum opus conceived during the nocturnes of her darkest hours, Mummy Mo reveals an artistry that defies the constraints of age and circumstance. Her tale is not merely a chronicle of loss but a lyrical testament to the transcendent power of music and the sublime grace discovered amidst life’s tempests.
