“Whatever your hands has found to do, do it diligently…..” says the popular biblical quote. It can be said of Oluwaseun Daniel Oluwabusuyi that he has put to good use the talent God deposited in him right from his days at Samuel Ajayi Crowther Grammar school till date.
The foundation stone of a worthwhile musical quest, though laid in the secondary school began to bud in the musical conservatory of the erudite music schorlar couple Mr. & Mrs. Boamah i.e Refunda School of Music, Iwaya where Seun studied intensely under the tutelage of his renowned mentor and brother(whose first name he shares) Mr. Seun Owoaje and was able to attain Grade 8 Theory of Music, Musical Society of Nigeria(MUSON).
The young man would not have believed it if anyone told him then that he would one day become the principal clarinetist of the MUSON orchestra, a seat he still occupies presently. Not resting on his oars, he also obtained several educational and professional certification in music which includes but are not limited to Theory of Music Grade 5 in 1998 & Clarinet Grade 8 with distinction from MUSON in 2004; and from the Associated Boards of the Royal Schools of Music, London.

To further the cause of profound tutoring tailored towards achieving a level of sound music appreciation and dynamic musicianship, Seun had several master classes under international music scholars like Professors Ralph Wilder & Paul Konye both from the United States; Linlin Pan from China; Thomas Kanitz from Germany, Dr. Sotiris Papadopoulus from Greece (whose Spice Band he performed with over a period of years); Marion Akpata, Mr. Seun Owoaje whom he studied Piano & Clarinet under in his formative years.
Other bands and music groups he performed or still performs with are the SR orchestra of the elder statesman, Late Elder Steve Rhodes; Preachers’ Band; Muson orchestra; Classicafricano Music(which he created and is a principal partner), etc. He also released his debut album titled “Stepping Out In Style” in 2007, a Christian inspirational outbreak produced by his mentor & seasoned pianist Mr. Seun Owoaje.
Ministerially, Seun worked in his church Mountain Of Fire And Miracles headquarters under the General Overseer Dr. D K Olukoya as music director of the youth choir with over 300 members between 2000 & 2007 and the Men’s choir with over 200 members from 2009 till 2011.
