There is music and there is music. There is music to make you shake your “bum bum” and there is music to make you reminisce. In “Olorun Mi,” Tiwa Savage does more than reminisce: she pulls at your heart’s strings with nostalgic lyrics dedicated to the ones we lost. We all have that special person who has moved on to glory. We all have special people for whom we say a little prayer every now and then.
Perhaps, “Olorun Mi” could become the soundtrack to the prayers we offer when we reminisce about the departed. The song has the emotional vibe that will make you shed a tear. And, the video shot in a church with angels and flashes of lost ones fits the track like a glove. Check out the video at the end of this post if you haven’t already abused the replay button. There has been a deafening buzz around Tiwa Savage’s upcoming first album, “Once Upon a Time.” And, if “Olorun Mi” is an indication of the kind of music on the album, then her fans will not be disappointed.
Perhaps, “Olorun Mi” is a foreboder of the uniqueness of Tiwa’s first album. Perhaps, “Once Upon a Time” will be an island in the ocean that is the Nigerian music industry where “Afrobeats” is the current rave. And, where hits upon hits – mostly party songs from male Afrobeats superstars threaten to oversaturate the market. Perhaps, Tiwa brings a breath of fresh air. Wait and see! Let us know what you think of the single “Olorun Mi” and upcoming album “Once upon a time.”
