Sir Shina Peters, famous Afro Juju musician, has been ordained a bishop of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church.
The legendary singer Shina Peters was ordained at a ceremony held at a Cherubim and Seraphim Church in the Iju area of Lagos on Saturday.
The veteran singer took to his Instagram page to share a video from his ordination, which is believed to have held on Saturday in Lagos.
The singer shared a video and photo of his ordination on his Instagram handle on Sunday with the caption, ‘‘Bishop with the swagger. God above all.”
In the video, he is dressed in a bishop’s outfit as a certificate was handed out to him by authorities of the church.
Born in Ogun state, Shina Peters’ career in music began at a young age when he played with friends under the handle of Olushina and His Twelve Fantastic Brothers. He taught himself the piano and later joined Ebenezer Obey’s band.
He would later leave Obey’s band to join General Prince Adekunle as a guitarist.
Adekunle’s band played in Lagos hotels such as Western Hotel, Palm Beach, and Executive Hotel. When Adekunle was ill, Peters acted as lead singer.
He later left Adekunle to form Shina Adewale, a band with Segun Adewale. The duo soon split. Peters had put out albums with Segun Adewale in the 80s before eventually forming his Sir Shina Peters & His International Stars.
In a separate message on his Facebook page, the ace singer wrote,
“To God be the glory. I will serve my god till the end’’.
His colleagues and fans have thronged his social media handles to congratulate him on his new role.
