John Olumayowa – ”Freedom” (+Lyric Video) || @johnolumayowa

Five singles and one studio video in and he has another one on here. 2020 has been a very productive year for Nigerian singer-songwriter – John Olumayowa. The prolific recording artiste returns again with a song for the moment titled – ”Freedom”. 

On October 20, 2020, Nigeria witnessed yet another tragedy that shook everyone in it to the bones especially the youths and while a lot has been said, is still being said and will continue to be said concerning the infamous incident that is now been referred to as the Lekki Massacre, John Olumayowa decides to pour out his emotions in this emotional song. 

#PCRECOMMENDS: Glowreeyah Braimah – ”Stronger” Feat. House of Praise Choir

“My eyes are full of tears as heroes are falling/ blood is gushing/ our hearts are bleeding”. Lines like this make the song heavy with emotions, pain and hope. 

Concerning the song, John Olumayowa says – “The tragedy of 20.10.2020 will forever be on our minds. I could feel the pain of the Nigerian youths; those who lost their lives and parents who lost their children. Many lost their jobs and properties were vandalised in the madness that engulfed the country. Right now we know that the only voice that matters is the voice of God and we call upon Him to grant our dear country Freedom. We pray to God to turn around the fortunes of this country.”

John Olumayowa is currently working on the visuals of the song and a future release has been slated.

Produced and mixed by dharpsykord.
