Music: Five Vibes Vol. 2

It’s Gospel (I’m trying to be consistent with the music posts, so here it goes). So, these songs are all Gospel songs that I stumbled across, and to be honest I’m still listening to, only having discovered a few not to long ago and some I’ve been rocking via YouTube for a while. I’ve listed these songs in no particular order. 1. Tim Godfrey & Lagos Community Gospel Choir ~ Medley I’ve started the video for you when the music actually starts because Tim Godfrey likes to shout. 🙄😐 My favourite part starts at 13:53… how I wish it went on longer just on this song. Twitter: @TimGodfreyWorld | iTunes | Spotify Unfortunately Lagos Community Gospel Choir aren’t that active on social media (they’re on Facebook) and I can’t seem to find their music on iTunes etc. If they do release anything I’ll update this post with their info. 2. Tosin Martins & Lagos Community Gospel Choir ~ Medley “Give Jesus a shout. Somebody RACE beyond your PLACE and PRESS beyond your PRESTIGE and give God praise tonight…” …

Music: The Vibe According To… Nonso Amadi and Khalid

Nono Amadi (@Nonso_A) When the 21 year-old, Nigerian-Canadian (Canadian-Nigerian) released “Radio” produced by Juls I just had a feeling that 2017 will turn out to be this young man’s year. My Twitter TL is a testament to this. I discovered his music by chance, last summer, while watching the Nigerian web series “Discovering ABJ” (episode 5) by Nappy Media. Thankfully his music was Shazam-able and available on iTunes and Soundcloud. I ended up downloading his songs “Tonight” and “Gele” and if you follow me on Snapchat, you would have heard me play these songs a couple times. Check out his song “Radio” and enjoy his laid-back-Naija-RnB sound. Khalid (@thegreatkhalid) Another young artist, at 18 is Khalid. This guy’s voice is very mature (if that’s a way to describe someone’s vocal ability). I stumbled on his music by way of Twitter-ville and his song “Saved” was added to my Soundcloud playlist immediately. Having heard his other songs on YouTube (“Coaster” is repeat worthy 👌🏾), I will be getting his album, “American Teen“, due to be released 3rd March 2017. I’m …

Music: Five Vibes Vol. 1

My first music post this year! Back in December I decided to spend an evening sharing music via Snapchat and it was suggested that I start Spotify Playlists… but like many things that don’t work here (i.e. Facetime), creating Spotify Playlists won’t be possible right now. Till then I’ll be sharing five songs I’m enjoying in any given week (they won’t necessarily be ‘new’ songs either). Enjoy.✌🏾 “Pain Killer” by @sarkodie & @iRuntown has me wishing I took my best friend seriously when she said I should know how to speak #Twi by now — Olayide M. (@OlayideM)February 8, 2017 “Pain Killer” by Sarkodie feat. Runtown “Temper” Remix by Skales feat. Burna Boy “Prayer” by DMW feat. Davido & Mayrokun “Fancy U” by Chike* “Ahaa” by Tim Godfrey & Xtreme  (Saints dabbin’ their way into heaven these days – Listen to this song with some good headphones!) All songs listed are available to purchase on iTunes.   Do you have any suggestions of artists to I should know of? Let me know! I’m always on the look out for ‘new’ …

Music: Everything Adekunle Touches is Gold

Release Date: 28 July 2016 | Record Label: YBNL The last week of July Adekunle Gold released his especially anticipated album, aptly named ‘Gold’. I remember sending a text to my friend, asking her to be my voice reason when it came to spending money on iTunes to buy this album (I just moved and every penny counted towards my days ahead so I held off on buying it then). Fast forward weeks later, not only have I purchased the album, but I also let Adekunle Gold know that there was an imposter lurking on iTunes (some brave fellow put his album up with a voice over all over the songs).** BUT since purchasing the album it has been on repeat. I like this album because… I tweeted what I liked most about the album and that was the element of storytelling. If you don’t already know I’m somewhat of a storyteller too (without the musical production) and for this reason I find the album extremely ‘easy’ to listen to and get lost in. His storytelling …

Life: Don’t Pity Me Because I’m Single – Vlogs & Songs

So last week I wrote about my singleness and how I feel about it, you can read it here. In light of that, here are two videos from young Christians talking about singleness and marriage, both from different Biblical perspectives. Ladies First: @Omoba_Debs | xSoulBeautyx on YouTube “I’m so in love with God in my state of singleness. I don’t see it as a curse anymore…” @whatisjoedoing from @chaseGodTV on YouTube “Your desire to be married is not an ungodly desire…but at the same time we can’t let this desire consume us and dominate us…” Also, enjoy this song from Falz (The Bahd Guy), with the helps of Yemi Alade and Poe, he talks about how eager women are to get married due to age, pressure from family, and seeing friends (and enemies) get married whilst they are [still] single (basically). If you understand the song I’m sure you’ll enjoy the funny punch lines but also appreciate the truth of the matter. “Don’t get it twisted, it’s not like I’m desperate/ I just have a life plan and it’s …
