Gospel musician Kayode Jemisenia, better known as K-Spirit dropped a new single on Tuesday to mark Nigeria’s 59th Independence celebration but declares that the song is a personal testimony to the supernatural power of God.
Speaking to www.naijagistland.com, K-Spirit claims the inspiration for the song came at a time he was witnessing some distressing downtime in his life before God came through for him.
“Olórun Koseun Ti was written sometimes in the middle of 2019 as I was contemplating on some challenges I was going through and wondering how I would pull through.
“It became a source of hope, encouragment and motivation that every thing is going to be ok, and that everything is possible with God. It also doubles as a song of thanksgiving and praise to the One who can do all things.
“On completion of the song, I felt it wasn’t meant for me alone but to be a source of encouragement to others not to give up and keep holding on with an attitude of gratitude,” he revealed.
The single, his seventh, is a collaborative effort with another talented artist Dunsin Oyekan may yet be his most important work giving the maturity and volume of work which went into producing it.
Abuja-based K-Spirit has been around for a while with his debut single Mo le fo released way back in 2012. This was followed in order by Always on my mind, Let me love you, Not Asking, Praise Without Borders and No Rival.
Though he released an album which wasn’t too successful due to the shoddy job done in production and distribution, K-Spirit reckons that his current album, due for release by December 2019, will be his official debut album.
He said: “I had an album some years ago but due to quality of the work, we could not push it. Now, having grown and learned better in terms of quality, I ususally like to say my upcoming project will be my official maiden album, so to say.”
On the proposed album, he’s collaborating with two artists on two of the songs but he would be writing the songs himself.
“Olórun Koseun Ti is my first collaboration but the album I am working on has two other artistes. I must say I have been blessed and privileged to have been writing all my songs from day one till date,” K-Spirit explained.
The lanky artist is a man of many parts, equally adept at holding the microphone as well as the stethoscope as a medical doctor.
“Considering the kind of music I do and the fact that there is no strong structures yet to support it, I have another vocation which supports my musical push and that is as a medical practitioner,” he revealed.
K-Spirit insists his musical sojourn has been influenced by so many gospel artists that it would be nigh impossible to point at one particular person as having had the most impact on his music.
“It has been a difficult question for me to give a simple answer as, over the years, I have been exposed to different gospel artistes and genres both Nigerian and foreign that has shaped my style and expression of music today.”
Truly, it is difficult to fault him on this.
There is a hint of Panam Percy Paul, Donnie Mccklurkin among others noticeable in his work, an indication that K-Spirit learnt from the very best in the business.
