Hi guys!
How are we all doing? Welcome to another amazing week of Afritunes musical performances. I went mia for two weeks, I know and I'm so sorry. I'm still writing my examination but the goodnews is that I have just one examination left so I'll be more available soon.


For this week, I decided to go back to my gospels because last time I sang a love song, I was told that I'm acting like someone that's being chiked😂 I hope I'm behaving well today. The culprits involved should leave me a review in the comment section.

On my reasons for choosing this song, first it's a lovely one and it's very meaningful. "Imela" is a Yoruba word that means "thank you". The song is that of gratitude. I'm grateful to God for a lot of things but most importantly for courage to get through life each day. For a long time, I'm talking about months, I haven't felt good. A lot of things I was handling went wrong so it weighed me down because I invested so much money and time in those things. I ended up so confused on how to move on and what to move on to. I wept for days, was lonely for other days too and very unmotivated. Looking at my blog, one could tell that I haven't written an article for ages because I can't put the pieces of anything together.

Despite all these, I'm grateful for life, for courage to wakeup daily and breathe, for ability to feel pain because trust me everything happens for a good reason and better days are coming.

I also asked God for provision. I needed money to surprise my brother on his birthday which was last week. It struck me that all my life I've never appreciated him. It's sad that I'm always giving people I'm not related to gifts, sometimes people who haven't impacted in me as much, people who turned out to not be genuine but I forgot my brother. I'm grateful because I was able to get him a quality gift.

Nathaniel Bassey ft Enitan Adaba - Imela

I also chose this song because of the combination of Igbo and Yoruba dialect in the lyrics. Since AfriTunes is about celebrating African music, I decided to celebrate the culture too.
So I'm hoping you enjoy my rendition and it encourages you to be grateful. See you all on the next post.

It's okay to feel this way sometimes but the good thing is that God always got our back every damn time. Everything will be fine.

As expected, you did justice to the song and your presentation is amazing.

Yes,, all these things come as speed bumps or potholes at different stages of our lives, not only to weaken us but to fortify us and make us stronger for more reality ahead of us.
Ive been there and I can't tell.

But with all we still say Imela to our creator and king

Awnnnnn... sister dideee
This your voice ehhh
Sometimes I wonder if you fell from heaven 😄.
Your entry is so nice.
You rock.

You too dey whine me this girl😂😂😂😂 Thank you darling. ❤️

I no de whine u o
It's the truth 😊

I had it in mind to ask about your exams. I trust everything i going going well. It's a privilege for us to have the grace of breathing in and out and the lord deserves our song of thanksgiving.
Well done sis.
Again, I am still asking. What does it mean to be chiked?

😂😂😂 Thank you dear. That last question made me laugh. Chiked is when a guy is toasting you. Like asking you out. You know when a guy is asking you for a relationship, he'll likely say some really nice things that will burst your brain and the girl will be smiling sheepishly. That's it 😁
