Our songs are always indelible and evergreen.
The ace Juju musician reveals a lot about his yearly supplication. “This is the 6th one, each time we approach the end of the year, we always have songs of prayer for our fans and it is tagged yearly supplication. It is always a pure and undiluted gospel; we don’t sing anyone’s praise in this kind of song. We always make sure that it’s always a spiritual song that can draw people closer to God. You can use it to communicate to God and it always comes out towards the end of November or in the last month”.
“Right now, I am delighted to inform you that this year’s Supplication series is already enjoying massive air plays. Lots of music presenters on the radio are already playing it back to back and the response we are getting from the listeners and our fans is that everyone loves the song. People say they have blessed by it. So, we thank God. It can only be God. I urge everyone to get a copy of the CD”.
