It’s been a while since we heard from Deo, a year to be exact since the release of his last single “Going Down” with Ikan and Mod3. But he’s back (hopefully for good) with Eleazar, the first single off his upcoming project “Crowns and Other Fancy Headgears” set to drop early next year.
The Song chronicles the transformation of a mind from a work based mentality to that of dependence upon the finished work of Christ. It opens with a statement of a desire, a dream to live a life totally committed to the king. Then goes on to establish the inability of one to do so outside of grace and faith. It then rounds off with a picture of a heart that’s dependent upon grace to do the works we’ve been called to do.
The Song gets it’s title from the name of one of David’s mighty men, Eleazar, one of the three that broke enemy lines to get water for the king.
According to Ossy Brown ~ “upon the launch of the “Love It 2x Best Dance Performance Contest” #LoveIt2x_BDP, we received more questions than entries so I decided to make a video to throw more light to the subject.
Making this video was really fun and knowledge gaining for me because I put myself in the shoes of a prospective contestant who may not have access to expensive equipment or studios to use but out of the easily accessible resources, creativity can be expressed in its maximum.
I took this opportunity to venture into one of my long-time dreams of being a film-maker and I’m so excited to premiere my first short-film.
So hey! don’t boo my dance, just do something a lot better, crazier and much more creative and the prize awaits you.
I’ll be on the lookout for amazing dance performances of this song between now and March, 2015 (exact closing date would be made known). Meanwhile, watch. enjoy and share my creative interpretation. Procedures are embedded in the video, and the voting process is in progress, so let’s catch some fun.”
