His desire to touch lives with his songs has helped to stir revival platformed on the power and wisdom of God. He does this through singing, playing the keyboard and guitar, and teaching the word of God.

He is the convener of Upper Room (a weekly worship experience), The Outpouring (a revival meeting), and Code Red (a bi-annual prophetic worship event and notable gathering where men encounter the outpouring of God’s Spirit in worship). He acknowledges Dr. Pastor Paul Idoko Enenche, the Senior Pastor of Dunamis Int’l Gospel Centre, Worldwide as his spiritual father. They have both shared platforms at various times.

In 2016, Dunsin released his 14-track debut album – Code Red. Thus far, he has released over thirty songs, including the popular Na You, which featured Kim Burrell, an American gospel singer, and was played at The Experience Concert.
