ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ASA ILE WA
I discovered from my journey to various countries how native language is embrace and appreciated, some of Yoruba children and even adults find it difficult to speak out Yoruba native language fluently and even most cannot speak it at all. The beauty and richness of Yoruba culture and language has been eroded and western culture has taken its place. This geared my passion towards bringing back that richness and beauty using this song to educate Yoruba people home and abroad about Yoruba language and culture.

ISE BERE
This song explains the importance of handwork and diligence which is a gateway or ticket to be successful in life. Since it is a common say that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, the song also advocates the importance of relaxation and adequate rest after engaging in handwork. This makes it equally balanced and elongates one’s life span.


ODOWURO
this is a prayer song of God's protection prominent then in the elementary school days. After each day’s activities, we pray for God's protection as we leave the school and to spare our lives and bring us back safely to school the next day.

TEACHER JOWO
Every activity outside the classroom has stipulated time allotted to each program. Assembly period, lunch period also called break time and closing period which terminates all activities related to each day. This song is about a student seeking permission to get something to eat during lunch break as the fragrance of the food is inviting to the student.
