He has so far, enjoyed a successful career winning several local and international awards alongside other recognitions.
On the inspiration behind the song, he said:’ I got this song in the heat of the pandemic. I thought about a song that will be a source of encouragement and also a praise to God for what He has done. So when this came, I immediately knew this was it and I also wanted it to be a collaboration”.
On his collaboration with talented Ghanaian US-based singer, Nana Adwoa, he said: ‘I wanted to do something a little different from just being specifically Nigerian.
“I wanted a song that will appeal to not just Nigerians. More so, I am very connected to the Ghanaian Community, my wife is Ghanaian.
“Nigerians also share almost similar values and sound in music with Ghanaians. So it just sat right in a good place to make it somewhat of a West African collaboration”.
The single, he said, will drop on June 11 on all online music stores.
