Having studied music performance from Muson Diploma school of Music with an associate degree and being awarded a diploma from Associated Board of the Royal School of Music, UK, he joined the Muson Symphony Orchestra (MSO) as the Principal clarinetist and a resident artist. He then moved to the US where he received a degree from the University of Dayton, OH in music performance with honors.

When he is not performing and touring, he organizes music workshops training different groups in the US and Africa.
He spends a little time teaching both kids and adults at his private studio when time permits.
Femi serves as the music director at the MFM Chicago, USA. He is committed to serving the Lord and depends on the Holy Spirit for inspiration and impartation. It was this inspiration that brought to life his long-term dream, Praise Experience. Femi Links: Facebook – Twitter – Instagram
