The single ‘Prophetic Declaration Upon Nigeria‘ produced by Bode Afolabi is an exquisite sound production, a healthy & beautiful blend of Western & African idioms. It is an excellent piece, which is rich in content, melodically catchy, lyrically engaging, & stylistically welI blended. It represents the ‘Specific Word’ Nigeria needs at this crucial season we presently are.
The opening choral construct wasn’t quite suggestive of the full content, an attribute of any good artistic work. Distinctiveness in terms of instrumentation. One curious & intriguing aspect on a theological front is the solo & choral response ending… ‘Eyin agbagba orun, e dide’. Even though the scripture affirms that there are different beings of different orders in heaven, each saddled with its assignment, we can equally contend that it’s the intervention of the host of heaven that is being sought, since God is described as the LORD of Host, Mighty in battle & the terrible one.
It is with great pleasure this single ‘Prophetic Declaration upon Nigeria’, is hereby released for the listening pleasure of all concerned patriotic Nigerians, and more importantly, for their awakening. The time to cry for our beloved nation’s deliverance is NOW.
