On the heels of the recently released album [Sounds of the Spirit] saxophonist extraordinaire King Mike Aremu drops a single off the album with an amazing animated lyrics video.
The album which was recently released on digital stores has gearned almost a Hundred thousand streams barely a week after it’s release.
The new single Not a Man is off the album and expresses the supremacy of God.
Not A man, one of my favourite songs of my album Sound Of the Spirit SOS, pays homage to who God is. The song was written from a place of remembrance and contemplation of the many times people and even myself had written off situations. However, I’ve come to realise that God’s thoughts and words will always supersede whatever any man may think or say. Because he is not a man… Mike Aremu
Following the release of the audio last week, M-ZOR Entertainment and Mike Aremu Vision (MAV) have released the official video of AKOWABA featuring Mike Abdul. The tune is positive and a very vibrant and contagious one.
The video has great energy, excitement, dance and dexterity. It is so fitting for the song, which in just a few days of release has captivated people and is gradually becoming an anthem. The video was shot and directed by Frizzle and Bizzle Films.

He comes with this breathtaking, heart-stirring, spine tingling Afro Cuban known as Salsa music which has so many intriguing, alluring elements of transverse horns ensemble with diverse coloration and rhythmic procession of luxuriant percussions, heavy bottled syncopations yet easy to sing along and danceable vibes.

To show that God is the only Igwe (King), Wole Oni recorded an acoustic, fluffy, warm, silky yet fat and inspiring sound of heaven.
