The veteran singer took to his Instagram page to share a video from his ordination, which is believed to have held on Saturday in Lagos.
In the video, he is dressed in a bishop’s outfit as a certificate was handed out to him by authorities of the church.
Born in Ogun state, Peters’ career in music began at a young age when he played with friends under the handle of Olushina and His Twelve Fantastic Brothers. He taught himself the piano and later joined Ebenezer Obey’s band.
He would later leave Obey’s band to join General Prince Adekunle as a guitarist.
Adekunle’s band played in Lagos hotels such as Western Hotel, Palm Beach, and Executive Hotel. When Adekunle was ill, Peters acted as lead singer.
He later left Adekunle to form Shina Adewale, a band with Segun Adewale. The duo soon split. Peters had put out albums with Segun Adewale in the 80s before eventually forming his Sir Shina Peters & His International Stars.
Recently, Peters featured alongside Teni, a Nigerian songstress, in one episode of the latter’s series ‘My XXL‘ life.
