Multi-award winning Gospel artist Muyiwa, has always broken boundaries in his delivery. He is the first and only UK Gospel artiste to sell out the Ocean Music Venue, Hackney, He is also the first and only UK Gospel artiste to sell out the 02 Arena, London. Muyiwa has also topped the UK Jazz and Blues Album Chart for a 5-month period. In 2009, Muyiwa became the first-ever international act to perform on America’s popular entertainment channel, BET, for the prestigious annual celebration of the Gospel show.
It has been 3 years since the distinctive UK Gospel artiste released a work, therefore it is only right that he makes a grand comeback.
Come May 11th, 2018, Muyiwa will release his latest effort titled “Alade Wura”. The unconventional urban music presents Muyiwa in new light, accentuating his return as resplendent due to the unusual style Muyiwa chose for his expression.
Muyiwa has always be known for fusing Conventional Gospel music with Contemporary elements and Afrocentric vibes. Also, he has always been a lover of the Hip Hop genre, therefore he should not come as a big surprise that he is tapping into the genre for a grand comeback.
“Most people are obsessed with trying to create something that fits another people type, another culture. I am doing me. I am British, I am African, I am me,”Muyiwa posited.
He employs the expertise of UK-based Urban contemporary Gospel Rap artist Guvna B to give “Alade Wura” that all-round Hip Hop feel.
“Those who know me know that Hip Hop was my thing and that I was a massive garage head. So for me, it was me reaching back to what I love. Guvna B is like a brother to me and one of my personal favourite artists. We’d never spoken about a collaboration until now.”
Produced by Ghana-based Francis Kweku Osei, ‘Alade Wura’ will be available on all streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music and Google Play.
We have patiently waited for the release of “Alade Wura” by multi-award winning Gospel artiste Muyiwa and it is finally here! It is a song of reassurance in the face of the vicissitudes that life presents, we can be confident of God’s constant love.
Muyiwa taps into one of his favorite genres – Hip Hop – which sees him expressing a side of him that will catch many by surprise. He fuses elements of Trap Music (a sub-genre of Hip Hop) on Conventional Christian instrumentation. He has always presented his style of music with out-of-the-box technique fusing traditional Gospel music with World music. Muyiwa enjoins the expertise of UK-based Urban Gospel Rap artist, Guvna B to give it that well rounded Urban feel.
“Those who know me know that Hip Hop was my thing and that I was a massive garage head. So for me, this new song is me reaching back to what I love. Guvna B is a good friend of mine and one of my personal favorite artists. We’d never spoken about a collaboration until now. “Alade Wura” is a celebration, a coming out loud saying I love Jesus, He is on my side. We are not the minority we are the majority,” Muyiwa inputs.
Muyiwa is not the average Gospel artiste, he is an experienced performer, broadcaster, and presenter. He is the director of UK radio station Premier Gospel broadcasting to over 180 million listeners per month. He has presented the TV programme Turning Point, with an estimated global audience of 70 million. He became the first-ever international act to perform on America’s popular entertainment channel, BET, for the prestigious annual Celebration of Gospel show. With his group Riversongz, he became the first and only UK Gospel artiste to sell out O2 Arena in London. He is also the first and only UK Gospel artiste to sell out the Ocean Music Venue, Hackney. Muyiwa has also topped the UK Jazz and Blues Album Chart for a 5-month period. He recently shared his interview where the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby engaged him on several issues, including the prayer – Thy Kingdom come.
