…Narrates His Foray Into Music

Chief Executive Officer of Honest Richy Hotel (HR Hotel) Mr Oluwatosin Davies Egbedeyi, has disclosed ways hotel owners can run a successful and lasting hotel business in the country, stressing that honesty, security and good customers service must be taken seriously.

According to him, his hotel is situated at Itele Road, opposite Obasanjo Police post, along Lafenwa Road, Sango Ota, Ogun state with another operational head office located at Iyana Iyesi, Nestle bus stop, Odo- Eran in Ota.

Egbedeyi who spoke with Travellers Network Magazine recently pointed out that, for a hotel to be recommended to someone else, the security, the management, the standard of the rooms, the restaurant and the food they have must be attractive.

He said “Every business venture carry some form of risk, in fact, doing anything in life at all is a risk. In running a hotel, you have to be careful with clients and the staff. The major challenge in the hotel business is power supply. You must be able to provide light for the customers round the clock and even for workers.”

“My advice to the hoteliers is for them to be honest. Any serious hotelier must be able to offer good services to their customers and train their workers to have good customer relationship. In addition, they should be sincere and trustworthy. They should not do away with any of their customers’ properties. If any property is lost and found, it should be returned to them as soon as they are found. I have travelled to many African countries, but due to my current business, I am unable to go to Europe countries, but now I am in music, I can go anytime”.

While giving a brief of his person, Egbedeyi a man of many faces recounted “I am a businessman, a dealer in scrap iron, hotelier, a musician and Chief Executive Officer of Adonai David Band. I am a native of Ogun state. My primary education was at St Julius Primary School, Ota, Ogun state.  My secondary education was at Sango High School and I had my tertiary education at Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU), Ago Iwoye. I studied Marketing and Management Science. I love to sing gospel juju music. I always sing for God; and whenever I do so, people admire my songs. In most cases, they advise me to go into full-time music and practise my art commercially.”

“Not long after, God revealed something to me, I was in the office when I heard the voice ‘This is the time”’, I received the message through my talking drum and from my senior brother who encouraged me to take on the career. The sign I saw that day made me to finally go start off my music career”.

“I settled for the name – Adonai David World Entertainment. I started just two years ago, however, going by the achievements I have recorded, a lot of people think we started a a very long time ago. I am grateful to God for how well the music band is moving, way beyond my expectations. I have started work on my second album. The launching of my first album was on the 5th of May, 2019, my second album is coming up soon,” Egbedeyi concluded.
