Recorded Live at the Hammersmith Apollo, London in 2012. Muyiwa’s song ‘Hey Ya’ was born from the 100 year Azusa street celebrations in Los Angeles California in 2006.

When asked the story behind ‘Hey Ya’. Muyiwa had this to say…. ‘I was in LA broadcasting from the 100 year celebration of Azusa street, while there it had all the leading names from around the world from EA Adeboye to Brian Houston from Hillsongs, also had diff Christians from diff parts of the world and different streams. One of the days I walked into a room and I could hear was ‘Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya’ and it was American Indians all dressed up as they would in American western and they were chanting Hey Ya Ya saying these things about Jehovah and then responding with ‘Hey Ya Ya’, then I said to myself I am going to take this back to London, write a song about it and say things about God ‘Who is he that gave His life so you and I can be set free? Jesus Christ the son of God, He’s the King of kings and Lord of lords and end it with Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya Ya hey OOH’

Following an intensive production process, Lois decides to drop the lyrics of Victorious before the official release date of the hit single.
With a strong emphasis on simplicity and clarity, Lois makes a shift from the regular song writing pattern most listeners are accustomed to. In clear and unique choice of words, she makes delivery of her advisory lines compelling everyone to hold strong and never throw in the towel if they intend to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Victorious comes with lines that are very easy to memorize. It is her desire that we all sing along with full content mastery when the song is finally released on the 19th of August. 

Kindly find lyrics below:


Victory is in you 

We’re born victorious 

Nothing can stop our victory 

If we don’t give up

i know you’ve had a tough life

Nothing seems easy 

You always have to 

Fight for what you want 

But Don’t give in to defeat 

Stand up strong on your feet

You had alot young dreams 

Where you wanna be 

But life throws stuff to ur face

But don’t give in to defeat 

Stand up strong on your feet 

And know that

The battle’s Already won

No matter what life throws at you 

Just come to realization
Chorus

That we are the Champions 

We are victorious 

We are the Champions 

Through Christ who wears the Victor’s crown

Finally you got a hold of something 

Something worth a while 

But life throws stuff to ur face 

Don’t give in to defeat 

Stand up strong on your feet 

They you’ve gotta know someone 

Say you gotta pay something 

This isn’t fair you say 

But don’t give in to defeat 

Stand up strong on your feet

And know that 

The battle’s Already won 

No matter what life throws at you 

Just come to realization

That we are the Champions 

We are victorious 

We are the Champions 

Through Christ who wears the Victor’s crown

I’ve been living my life 

In fairy-tales

I’ve been believing in whatever 

People say 

But now I know who I am 

And where i stand 

I am more than victorious 

And more than a conqueror

We are the Champions 

We are victorious 

We are the Champions 

We are victorious 

We are the Champions 

Through Christ who wears the Victor’s crown

Multiple award winning gospel artiste, Song writer, and Music Director, Tim Godfrey has announced that his 5th Studio Album titled Fearless WRSHP will be available in stores and online platforms from Sunday 13th August 2017.
The Agidigba crooner took to his Instagram account to break this news.

“HERE IS MY BIG ANNOUNCEMENT I AM GRATEFUL TO GOD AND SO EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE FEARLESS WRSHP ALBUM IS READY AND THE SONGS ARE SET.
THE ALBUM WOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER ON ALL PLATFORMS AFTER THE LAUNCH ON THE 13TH AUGUST DURING THE FEARLESS CONCERT. HERE IS THE ALBUM COVER 

HALLELUJAH WE ARE FEARLESS.”

The Fearless Wrshp Concert


The highly energetic and dynamic minister who is currently set to host 12 time Grammy award gospel singer, songwriter and music producer, Kirk Franklin in a live recording concert on August 13, which shares the same theme with the soon to be released Album, Fearless believes that God has given him a clear mandate which is to set the pace for the new and coming generation of worship leaders and gospel artistes that anything is possible once God has his hands on it.

For Tim Godfrey, “Fearless” is more than a mere concert or album, it’s a movement.

“Fearless is beyond just a concert, a live recording or an album, it is a movement, it is a charge to march to the gates of the enemies and take back what is rightfully ours through the victory that is already won by the finished work of Jesus Christ.

As I always say to my team, we are not fighting for victory; we are fighting from victory, Halleluyah”.

The first edition of Fearless held in July of 2016 with over 6,000 worshippers converging to raise a praise to God.

The second edition holds on Sunday 13th August 2017 at The Rock Cathedral, House of The Rock Lekki Lagos. Gates open by 2:30pm for the Red Carpets and Concert/Live recording starts at 5pm Prompt.

Ministering alongside Tim Godfrey and Kirk Franklin include Frank Edwards, ROX Nation Artiste, Blessyn, Mike and De Glorious, Wilson Joel, NOSA, and Onos Ariyo.

The launch of the Fearless WRSHP album will take place during the concert/live Recording on the same day.


Same OG is dropping a FULL BODY OF MUSIC. It is her Debut project as she has initially dropped singles which has earned lot of good comments via tangible dissemination.
Being the first body of work, Same OG who is a young independent female artist shows some versatility, passion and ultimately wants to make a huge impact hence putting up a campaign structure to make this work well known.

The aim of this campaign is to take Same OG and her songs on this project to the END OF THE WORLD. #Amen.

We intend to dominate the entire Social Media, Online properties (website and apps), BBM, WhatsApp, Third Party affiliation/associations, Radio interviews, TV interviews, etc.

So you are enjoined to be on the lookout as Same OG would be right in your face.

Here’s a video preview for a tip of what to expect:



The “Kedike” crooner and winner of the 2010 MTN Project Fame music competition went on social media to frown against feminine disunity and points on the Biblical essence of feminine unity.
She quotes:

God wants to bring sisters together. Every Mary needs an Elizabeth, stop your bickering and your badmouthing, drop your guns and your gossip, drop your verbal swords, God put something in your sister that you need and He put something in you that she needs. When you come together for prayer and mutual support, powerful things can happen.

It is of no suprise that such could come from her. Does it reveal the troubling disunity amongst females? Does it unveil why females prefer to have a male friend than a female? Whats your take on it?


International gospel music minister, Sammie Okposo is up to something! The music maestro and multiple award winning psalmist took to his Instagram handle to share a message that says;


‘’Breaking News! Big Announcement this October 2017. Brace yourselves. More details coming soon’’.


We don’t know what the world famous Wellu Wellu master is up to, but from the tone of the message, it’s going to be really massive. Something really Big!


Sammie has always surpassed our expectation in his craft, music and events and we having a feeling that this is one of those redefining moments. If we are to do a guess, we know he has promised us he is coming out with an album titled SWAG, we also know he is yet to do any personal event of his own this year, we also know he is yet to buy a private jet (OK! this was a joke.), and a couple of other things that would come to mind. But until he tells us, all we can do is guess.

 

So like he said, brace yourselves, get ready, something big is coming this October 2017!
