Mr. Deba Uwadiae, a Nigerian journalist and author, based in Columbus, Ohio, the United States of America (USA) has released a seven-track music album.
The album title: ‘Hallelujah Amen,’ was released with an accompanying video on Thursday, May 27, 2021.
The album is coming barely three months after Uwadiae released his two singles, ‘Ojomiloju’ and ‘Mogberi.’
Uwadiae, the publisher of ‘New Americans Magazine’ and author of ‘Coming to America: Early Life in America and Citizenship,’ in a statement to journalists, expressed delight at the completion of the work, which he said he started a few years back, stressing that this was the right time for him to praise God for curbing the spread of the pandemic in the globe.
He said: “There is no other way to express gratitude to God at this period than singing ‘Hallelujah Amen’ for bringing the pandemic under control.”
Other tracks in the album include ‘One World One Nation’, ‘Streetlight Out’, ‘Kose’, ‘Osa with Ojomiloju’ and ‘Mogberi’.
The album is divided into secular and non-secular music. Three of the songs: Hallelujah Amen, Osa and Ojomiloju are religious, while he adopted Afro music, Samba and Reggae for the beats.
Apart from English language, the songs were rendered in two other Nigerian languages – Yoruba and Edo.
The album, which was released in all digital platforms including Pandora, Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music, Tik Tok, Media Net and YouTube Music has an accompanying video for Hallelujah Amen, stressing that the remaining six tracks would be supported by video as well.
While previewing the album, the producer of Legal Angle and Columbus-based legal practitioner Emmanuel Olawale described Deba Uwadiae as “a man of multiple talents. It’s like your talent is unending,” he said.
The album is produced by Theo Odiifuo of OD4 Music.
