One of the most prolific Gospel recording artists in recent times has been Nigerian Christian Gospel artiste, Ibadan-based Singer-songwriter John Olumayowa. The singer who doubles as a pastor has released a plethora of music in the last couple of years, all with his trademark message of hope and worship.
For his brand new single “Rise Up” John Olumayowa says “On a fine Saturday morning, I was led to read Isaiah 60:1. The same passage where I got inspired to write my song “LET IT SHINE” which featured in my album “EFFULGENCE”. The passage made me recall my hard times, my state of hopelessness, and how God’s Superior power rose me up, set me on my feet, and settle me according to 1Pt5:10
‘Rise Up’ produced by ADOOC is definitely a song for the moment capturing the restoration power of God in a soothing delivery from John Olumawoya with beautiful harmonies which has now become part of his music. As we listen to Rise Up we pray the situation we find ourselves as a nation never repeats itself and for God to take us from this place to a higher place.
