Nosa is simply an amazing singer.
His vocal dexterity is..err…permit me to use the word “enviable”. Every song performed by the “Always Pray for You” maestro were delivered with simplicity yet sound professionalism. No “wash”! I’m only trying to capture my love for this great man’s gift in the best possible adjective I can think of cos he does deserve it.
Now with that said, let’s get down to the song at hand, “Why you love me”.
This is contemporary high-life at its best.
The beat and instrumentals are just right. The lyrics, though in his signature pidgin english delivery are intelligent, well planned and thought of, not some mumbo jumbo and burukete burukete burukete (where did that come from?) which features in most of our songs nowadays, even our very own gospel music.
Ok, now my grouse with the song is that the name “Jesus” or “God” was not mentioned in the full song which is supposedly about God’s love. See, I could as well insert “Rihanna, why you love me” or “Buddha, why you love me” without stress and it’ll still pass. So the question would be Why WHO love me?
Was that on purpose? So as to be relevant in both the secular and gospel sphere?
But seriously, do we need to remove Jesus or God from songs to be relevant?
Can we preach a message without The Message?
Oh well, someone would argue that its “Inspirational Music“. Please spare me the worldly jargon which. That is just an excuse that most gospel artistes use so as to have a bite in the secular market share .
The message of Jesus is the life transforming GOSPEL and not an INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE.
Peeps might say, he’s not just a gospel musician na. And i’m like o……………………..k.
AS YOU KNOW, THIS IS ONLY MY OPINION. Don’t mind me o.
Overall, the song is a plus for me. Love it. Now your turn, what do you think?
