Hello everyone, it's of great joy for me to be able to make my debut today in Afri-tunes week 65. Actually i've been paying attention to the community over the last few weeks, you know seeing how things are supposed to be done and also the DON'Ts in the community. So today i feel like i am ready to make my debut after learning the basics of how Afri-Tunes community works.
That said, i'll be performing a cover of a song titled "Pray for me" by Darey ft Soweto gospel choir. why i choose this song is because i believe it's quite relatable, the song talks about a man who's willing to go into the "struggling" world to hustle in other to make it in life but in the process leaving his family & loved ones behind.
i know many nigerian youths are outside there going through this type of struggles and this doesn't leave me out. i can testify to this because i left home shortly after my Nysc program ended in year 2019 and was only priviledged to see my family and friends just 5 times from 2019 - 2022, its pretty hard because the type of job i got myself into doesn't give me time to travel or go on holidays.
The funniest part is during that "crazy" times at work, i got the opportunity to check on my family at home. lo and behold on getting home i found out that my kid sister had graduated from Secondary school and at the time already written her post utme in FUNAAB, i was like how? and asked myself has it been that long i left home.?smile's.
(oh by the way my kid sister is now a bonafide Funaab student🤍)
in a nutshell, Pray for me as the title implies means every single one of us out there needs our parents and/or loved ones prayers for us to find our ways and to survive in this harsh world.
Now sit, relaxe and watch me as i do my presentation. thanks.
PRAY FOR ME/ LYRICS
Woke up one sunday morning
Told my daddy i'm leaving home
Going off to the city tomorrow
Even though i don't know where to go.
Daddy said son don't be a fool
Cause life in the city is unbelievable
You could get broken oh you're just a little boy
And you may never find your way
And i said i know i could get loat ( i know i, i)
I know i could get broken (i know i)
Forgive me father but i've got to take a chance
oh i'm already gone so just
Pray for me (Gbàdúrà fuń mi)
Pray i find my way (Kori bamise)
Oh forgive me father but i got to take a chance.
Oh i'm already gone so just.....
Thank you so much for stopping by, means the world to me. i know i might be lacking in one way or the other but i hope to improve as time goes on. See you on next contest!!
