S’akawe is the first of 6 songs from the forthcoming Tosin Martins EP – Under The Influence, a comeback effort by the celebrated artiste after a long break.
It is an unusual afrocentric live recorded gospel piece, with the full complement of live instrumentations, performed by a collective of some of the best musicians Nigeria can boast of.
The song is an eclectic fusion of familiar genres (highlife, afro, ballad and CCM), with very compelling poly-rhythms and a sweet melody to move even the most stern of enthusiasts.
Recorded in Lagos, and produced by Dara Akapo and Tosin Martins, with additional production contributions from master guitarist Nsikak Okon and renowned audio engineer/producer – Edward Sunday.
S’akawe is an ode to the supremacy of God as the first and ultimate creative/creator.
The song suggestively admonishes listeners, to take God’s perfect execution of all we see in the material world, as a pointer to what masterpiece He can potentially make of the life of anyone who entrust themselves to Him, through faith in Christ.
Available on all major digital stores and streaming platforms, it promises to leave listeners spell bound and get them quickly singing along.
A befitting video will follow in a matter of weeks, to visually represent and further strengthen the message of the song.
