Sam Adebanjo is the principal of this Urban Gospel singing team Desire to Worship God and has a passion to see change in the music industry. “I have seen the negative effect certain genre of music has had on many people I grew up with,” he says. This ultimately spurred a passion for “the lost” and the birth of Sam Adebanjo and DTWG.

Adebanjo went from being a Muslim, homeless and trouble with the law, but he found God and made a 180-degree turn.

Adebanjo and DTWG are becoming a household name in the UK Gospel Scene. It’s not surprising with their rich harmonies, soulful arrangements and contagious melodies. Their songs are influenced by their experience of their daily walk with God.

Founded in 2003, they have many accomplishments under their belts. They have shared the stage with Mary Mary, Emeli Sande, Muyiwa & Riversongz, Sonnie Badu, Ron Kenoly and many others. They have performed at celebrities wedding’s and events including BBC. It’s clear to see that their music is well received by people of all walks of faith.

Other notable recognitions includes their 2011 appearance on the Channel 4 show Jamie Oliver’s Christmas with Bells; receiving both a Praise-Tek Gospel Music Award in 2012 for Great Contribution to Gospel Music and taking home the BEFFTA Award 2010 for Best Gospel Act.
