“And [Jesus] called a child to Himself and set him before them – and said ‘unless you become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven’” (Mathew 18:3), so it does not come as much surprise if He chooses to send us a message of hope through a child as well.
Dublin based singer/songwriter, Yoma is 11 years old but God has used her to bring us an apt message of hope saying “Don’t Doubt the Lord”. The uptempo Techno-pop fusion follows the theme of the song both in the tone and mood as well with Yoma’s tender voice asking:
“Why do you still doubt the Lord? Has he not said it, will he not do it? He just needs your faith.”
Born in Galway City in the Republic of Ireland, Ogheneyoma Azania Dodo was born into a musical family, her maternal grandfather was a singer, her mum is a choir member at CACC Dublin and Yoma’s brothers Tevin and Troy also sing.
She developed a passion for music at a young age with singers such as Chrisette Michelle, Sinach, Frank Edwards, Tasha Cobbs, Kirk Franklin, Sonnie Badu, Pastor Donnie McClurkin, Sammie Okposo, Bob Marley and Sia shaping her style and prowess.
Yoma’s aim is to use her music to inspire and encourage people to trust in God, to worship and appreciate him. Yoma is presently a member of the CACC youth choir and the St Teresa primary school choir – the Superstars.
