eMJOY – Dance Elele + Jamalo Shamalo (Keet It Going)

Dance Elele & Jamalo Shamalo cover art

Dance Elele is a jam for you to literally jump and dance to. It has that European dance genre sound to it, as well African bongo drums running through to bring it home. On “Elele” eMJOY shares a testimony of being saved by Jesus, from peril in this world. And the word “elele” means “to the fullest” as eMJOY defines it, although it’s a commonly used Nigerian street slang with a variety of interpretations.

 

Jamalo Shamalo (Keep It going) cover art

Jamalo Shamalo is more of a relaxed tone song which you can still bob your head to. Lots of African bongo drums pervade it but a constant beat on which eMJOY tries to pour his heart out, articulating his conviction of triumph through constant let downs.

Here, he believes in God. That regardless of what comes his way, he chooses to “let’s go (Jamalo), keep it going (Shamalo), keep following the Father (Je ka Ma Baba Lo)” as you hear in Yoruba language just before each chorus comes in. Taymie is the gracefully vocally endowed singer assisting on the chorus.

Not All Gospel Songs Are Healthy – Oluwatosin Ade-Ajayi

There’s this enchanting, smoldering, riveting, exhilarating and enigmatic feeling I have for this guy hubda, glazba, muziek, zene, muzik, tonlist, music, coel , musica, musique. Actually, I just spelt “music” in ten different languages. (You thought I was going to gist you about a guy right? *smiling* keep reading, you’ll find this even more interesting).

“Which one is this again! There are way too many rules. They said don’t listen to ungodly song, I tried so hard and happily succeeded (after sooo much struggle) and now just when I was settling down and feeling good with my achievement, they bring this ‘revelation’ again”.

I loooove music!!!

gospel-music

According to mdictionary.com, music is an art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony and colour.

Highlighting the word significant this implies that music, expresses a meaning, has a meaning be it hidden or not, it has the capability to influence. More so, anything with significance is never produced by mere chance, but for a purpose.

The kind of music we listen to affects our personality and who we eventually become” says a music lover. Scientific studies have proven that music relentlessly affects our psyche and our behaviour is dependent on the kind of music we listen to.

Let me tell you a brief story from my favourite non-friction book. An angel named Lucifer was exceptionally endowed with music. In fact he was the head of the music ministry in heaven. He was not only endowed with music but with beauty. He was even regarded as the morning star. (Read the Bible for facts- Job 38:7, Ezekiel 28:13-19, Isaiah 14-11-14)

But his splendor got into his head and he became very prideful, wanting to overthrow GOD , so the ‘Big boss’ displaced him from the heavens down to the lowest depths. When Lucifer the fallen angel was displaced, his talents where not ripped off him and instead of using his talents for what it was created for, he used and still uses them to lure human into all manners of sin. So that they will fall into the unpleasant, darkest, lowest depths like him.

Back to the significant characteristic of music, Music is not merely produced; this implies that every musical piece has its purpose. Music was originally created to glorify God, but when the music leader Lucifer rebelled, he started creating his music with a contradicting purpose.

Now, a music piece can only have one of these two purposes, which is to glorify God or not to glorify God. No matter how enchanting music sounds, it can either be from the pure source or the evil source.

. . . some godly music can be a disguise (The devil is a chief when it comes to deceit, II Corinthians11:14). When I was told about a decade back that not all lyrically good songs are from God and that there’s a spirit behind every song, in my mind I was like,

“Which one is this again! There are way too many rules. They said don’t listen to ungodly song, I tried so hard and happily succeeded (after sooo much struggle) and now just when I was settling down and feeling good with my achievement, they bring this ‘revelation’ again”.

Although the statement took me by surprise, I knew there was something deep about the statement “There is a spirit behind every song” so I took note of this statement and told God to explain this revelation to me.

One interesting thing about God is that he never condemns you. He reveals and explains things to you in bits until you grasps the whole picture and leaves you to decide for yourself what path to take. Now it’s crystal clear to me that the statement is true.

Obedience doesn’t come naturally to human so don’t be too hard on yourself to follow the ‘rule’ Just ask God, to reveal to you the truth about music and to help you love the truth. When you love something you’ll follow it without thinking of the opportunity cost. This is a simple secret on how to be obedient.

Oh o! This post is getting too long so I’ll highlight what I have discovered .

1. The lyric of a song is key. A song with clean, morally good lyrics is safe to speak meditate on. Mark 7:20-21

2. The personality of the artist. Although God can use whomever He pleases, if you’re observant, you’ll know an ungodly artist who is singing a godly song for the money.

3. How do you feel while listening to the song? Most importantly, how do you feel after listening to the song? Take time to observe this and be sincere. Does the song make you sad, lonely, depressed, happy, edified or at peace…

4. What spirit is behind the song? On the long run it’s either God’s spirit or the devils. E.g. if the spirit of peace is released from a song then it’s of God. Job 32:8 says the spirit of God in man gives man intelligence.

An artist who worships the devil will release a song with an evil spirit. The most effective way to discern the spirit behind a song is to be in constant fellowship with the Holy Spirit (The spirit of truth). With the Holy Spirit, in you, you’ll have a caution in your spirit to repel any song with an evil spirit.

5. Lastly the choice is yours. If you choose to become significant and fulfill the purpose for which you were created, you’ll listen to things that will aid your desire. The Holy Spirit can only guide you, not force you.

You can listen to godly gospel songs all day every day on Praiseworld Radio http://www.praiseworldradio.com an online gospel radio station. You can also download gospel songs for FREE on the official website.

I’ll love you to share your perspective on music, do you love music? What type of music do you listen to? How do you discern what type of music to listen to?

Re-Cap: Mercy Me – I Can Only Imagine

The song which was released in 2001, still feels fresh in the hearts of people who listens to it. It was written and composed by Bart Millard, and inspired by the death of Millard’s father as he considers what it would be like in Heaven and to be standing before God.

In writing the music for the song, however, the band faced more difficulty; Millard noted that “at first it was a fast song… it was all these random ideas”. Keyboardist Jim Bryson noted that “we were literally tearing down the stuff… [Millard] and I were talking about arranging it differently and doing a slower version, so we just tried out a piano intro… it was literally the first thing I played. It wasn’t anything to do with me, I think it was just a God thing. [Millard] said ‘here it is, this is what’s going to happen’, and we laid the song down in about five minutes.” At that time, the other MercyMe members were Robby Shaffer on drums and percussion, Nathan Cochran on bass guitar and Michael Scheuchzer on guitar. This line-up recorded the first version of the song for The Worship Project. In 2006, it was included in the ‘Platinum Edition’ of Almost There.

Dan D Humorous joke on Emenike and Amodu

 

As it is his custom, Dan D’Humorous delivers another quick 2-in1 Jab. First it was Amodu, then it turned on to Emenike – the two goal hero against Ethopia last Sunday. This video boils down to the fact that Nigerians are talented and place more passion in what they know how to do best. If you doubt, just take your time and watch it for yourself.
