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
The release of this song during this crucial time in Nigeria is to give hope to Nigerian youths who are hoping for a better Nigeria. Also for anyone facing one personal problem or the other.
