Christmas is the perfect time to celebrate the love of God and family and to create memories that will last forever. Jesus is God’s perfect, indescribable gift, that came to earth to save mankind.
In the spirit of the season, Award winning Gospel artiste Yoyo, has released a brand new Christmas song titled ”Osiwi”, which means ”Saviour”. One unique feature of this song is the progression from the usual slow Christmas carol song to a groovy African, Niger-Delta praise joint. This is one song that we will not be surprised if it is embraced by most choirs preparing for their Nine-Lessons and Carol Service.
In her own words “This is my own Naija Christmas Carol”. The Song was produced by Ace producer Tiwezi. This song is simply Extraordinary. Sit back, relax and Enjoy ”OSIWI”.
Sensational gospel artist Fortune Ebel drops his debut album titled “I Rule”, the Gospel Crooner currently serving as a Lead Psalmist in House on The Rock, Lagos, NIGERIA is really proving to be a Cosmopolitan Lyricist/Singer indeed.

“I RULE” is a 12 track album with songs of extreme praise like ‘Raise You High’, ‘Na My Day’, songs that will lift you into praise and dancing. This album also featured other gospel artists like DannieLove and Blessal.

“This an early Christmas gift from me to you… this song was first produced jokingly in my mum’s Kitchen two years ago after the birth of my boys. My HOD Emmanuel Okolie aka Mc. Notindomi played the Keyboard right there in the kitchen. I wanted to tell an idyllic story about the birth of our King.
A story that is still relevant today, because our King lives forever. His birth was divinely orchestrated to restore man back to God. I wanted to paint a story of His birth that I could sing to my kids during bedtime, a story that speaks about the God we love and have choosen to serve…
To everyone who has been a part of this journey I say a big thank. Especially to my best friend, mentor, teacher, destiny partner, Pastor and husband – Femi Luther-Abegunde.” ~ El-woma.
The song was produced by Mr. Wols of Greenland music and the video was directed by the prolific director Sunny Peters.
