AFTER four years, female Christian performance poet, Damola Adesina, has released the Yoruba version of her album, The Praise of the Father.
The new work entitled Iba Olodumare is due for launch tomorrow at the Coral Reef, 10A Ikoya Avenue, Off Mcpherson Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, at 12 noon.
In a statement, the artiste said: “Olodumare the Supreme God has no shrine, no special drum rhythms nor any definite object of devotion. Praise, pure worship is all it takes. And this is what I have achieved in Iba Olodumare offering thorough sacrifice to the Creator of heaven and earth in a chant mode wholly biblical in content with flavour from awe-inspiring phenomena revealed by modern science, interlaced with captivating sound effects around phrases of classical music rendered in traditional Yoruba Oriki structure.”
She recited 697 verses of scriptures to offer listeners a significant level of spiritual upliftment, eliciting spontaneous responses. Her recitation of these verses showed Olodumare that “inhabits the praise of His people. God is bound to be pleased.”
