OFFICIAL VIDEO: Bethany Bola Thani – Tambira Jehovah || @BolaThani

“A dog that dances for its master will surely eat what the master eats” Pst. E.A. Adeboye. 

“I was a guest minister in a church in the States where the choir raised the song ‘Tambira Jehovah’ and the atmosphere changed with everybody dancing.” “Though I had no idea what the lyrics meant, I just whispered to myself – It is my turn to dance!”

On a second thought, I took a deep plunge into the Internet in frantic search for Tambira Jehovah. I was deeply blessed by Mkhululi Bhebhe/Joyous Celebration‘s version of the song – Tambira Jehovah.

Tambira Jehovah is a Shona folk song from Zimbabwe meaning “Come and dance for the Lord”. That nailed it. I was greatly inspired to pop up my version and on my return to Nigeria, I consulted with Daniel Adegbenro, a South African trained musicologist whom I was very certain could best interpret the song.

Tambira Jehovah is laced with English, Shona, Swahili and Yoruba languages. 

IT IS YOUR TURN TO DANCE! – Bethany Bola Thani.
