‘I Am Real’ is a song that means a lot to him as it contain some of the words God spoke to him when he was facing some challenges. Those days when the future looked so bleak that it seemed like a mirage.
About Preye Odede
Oyenkepreye Odede is the third child of his parents. Preye grew up in Port Harcourt Township Area of Rivers State, Nigeria. As a young lad he was part of an all-male acapella singing group – Born To Praise and was also a member of the Universal Love Choir of the Assemblies of God Church, Woji. Preye would also distinguish himself as a soloist with the Casor Reconciliation Choir [CRC] in Abia State University. He is a graduate of Microbiology
Preye was inspired to write the song – ‘Ebezina’ as a result of turbulent times his family faced with accommodation challenges for 9 years leading to their eventual ejection from a make-shift “batcher” home.But, even when it seemed all was lost, Preye didn’t loose his praise and a song borne out of a grieving situation which became the catalyst for a life transforming testimony.
Most recently whilst his elder sister went through a surgical operation which complications almost took her life, confused and distraught, Preye sought help from friends and colleagues at large, relying mainly on external prayer support but once again, GOD laid in his heart a new song – ‘I Am Real’ don’t take your eyes off me. And while he worshiped, GOD proved himself real and today his sister is hale and hearty!!!
