I may have heard this terrific song once or even twice, but never really bordered to analyze and appreciate the velvety-voiced, Port Harcourt, Rivers state born gospel act until the Holy Spirit arrested my faculties to go and appreciate the wonders of my hit of the year if not the decade. As often happens, once I get hooked up on a particular track, I just continue playing it, hoping to get bored, but this has not happened in respect of Chinwo’s “Chinedum”.
The lady pours out everything, energy, soul and the synergy of her backing group as well as the piano player who seem to infuse the powerful support on everyone concerned with the musical production. When I switched to the YouTube for the video back up, it was even more heavenly with the backing dancing and vocal support.
This was when I realized that Africamusiconline.com blog we publish has paid little or no attention to the gospel music of the times over the past one and half years we have been publishing.
Gospel music has grown massively in Nigeria, indeed the entire world over the years. And Nigeria was not going to be an exception in the emergence of great icons of the art. Chinwo’s variety of gospel music is special and designed to bring you down to earth and begin to appreciate God’s gift to humanity and the enormous blessings he can usher on the life of a human like Mercy Chinwo. Who is the real MC?
“She is a Nigerian singer-songwriter and actress.
Chinwo first came to prominence after winning the Etisalat and Pepsi sponsored Nigerian Idol Season 2 in 2012. Chinwo’s father died when she was at a young age”, noted the profile.
“The single is produced by Eezee Conceptz and it is a sizzling brand new song titled Chinedum”.
