Iconic Gospel artiste, songwriter, and publisher, Dr. Faith AJIBOYE, has released a new inspiring song, titled NARA EKELE, to comfort Nigerians who are viçtims of the hard times, violence, and insecurity ravaging the nation.
Speaking in an interview, Church Times, Ajiboye said the purpose of the album is to console Nigerians who have lost their loved ones and properties as our nation is engulfed in gory violence and insecurity.
“I want them not to lose hope, for God will soon answer our prayers and end this crisis that is beyond us’ he stated
” This song was born out of my daily relationship, devotion, and deep communion with God. I was in deep meditation and pondering about so many things that I have gone through in life, and how God delivered me out of them all and brought me to where I am today. I was lost in that thought and still in the gratitude mood when I opened my mouth and what came out was: Nara Ekele”, he explained.
“I shared the new song with a Christian Sister who stays in the same compound with me. And immediately, she joined me and we started singing and worshiping God with it. This was the first signal to me that this is not just an ordinary song, it is the song God released to me to bless humanity, said Ajiboye who recently lost a dear relation.
In Nara Ekele, AJIBOYE featured one of the Best African Gospel music Female Vocalists today, PSALMOS, who contributed immensely to the song with her God-given grace and amazing vocal prowess.
The song is produced by ace music producer, HYKEY and jointly mixed and mastered by HyKey, with great assistance from Tope Alabi’s new producer, Kunle Oniyo, and Femity at Sound Incredible Studio.
Fast-rising audio-visual producer,Femity also produced the classic video of the song.
