The Holy Spirit is in Pastor Airen Ekhosueh

Pastor Airen Ekhosueh just released a new song ‘Nothing Without You’

Pastor Airen sat down with Loveworld Music to answer some questions about the inspiration behind his incredible music. Mega-producer Pastor Airen Ekhosuehi is an incredibly inspired person. One can hear immediately how much he is getting from the Word of God. He breathes the holy spirit with is music sounding like a direct message from Jesus himself.

Pastor Airen released his brand-new song ‘Nothing Without You”. The song is a tribute to the Holy Spirit and the work he does for us. The Pastor says that the “lyrics are a constant reminder that He is the very essence of our existence and without him we are nothing. It brings to the forefront of our consciousness the fact that we are walking in the will of the Spirit on a daily basis. This song is invigorated with a power to change and you will surely be blessed as you listen.”

Like all Loveworld artists, Pastor Airen Ekhosuehi is completely filled with the power of Christ. The gospel producer and artistes gets his inspiration directly from the Holy Spirit, as his song strongly implies. ‘ Nothing Without You’, is a testament to the meaning we get from the Holy Spirit and the Lord Jesus Christ. Without them, we are empty. He has said that his fellowship with God, has given him endless creativity, something that all gospel artists are fortunate enough to receive.

According to Christ Embassy spokesperson, “these artistes are given a platform by Pastor Chris to spread their words and minister to millions of people around the world on mega stages.” Pastor Airen has said about his worship song “this worship song brings (Him) to the forefront of our consciousness that truly He is our everything an because of Him, there is no seemingly impossible situation or challenge we can’t overcome!”

“He is the same Spirit that raised Jesus and He is Alive in us! So no matter the situation you find yourself, you sing this you know you have the victory”. Pastor Airen indeed preaches some powerful words about the impact gospel music can have. The producer and musician feeds his fans the nourishment that is the words and melodies of his music. I guess we all have Loveworld president, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome to thank for nurturing and boosting such incredibly talented musicians

Amen.

Mercy Chinwo Treats Us to a Highlife and Gospel Crossover

Nigerian singer, songwriter, Mercy Chinwo who came to prominence in the 2012 Nigerian Idol’s competition is back with another album.

Local airwaves have been featuring Chinwo’s hit song “Excess Love” quite a bit lately. The song has become a staple in the Nigerian church music scene, giving churchgoers some head bopping tunes heaps of inspiration.
It’s no wonder that the gospel starlet’s album is such a hit. The new album is a wonderfully melodic celebration of God and artfully incorporates the warm nostalgic sounds of traditional ‘highlife‘ music, a style of music that originated in Ghana during the early 1900s and has its influences in Yoruba and Igbo cultures.
Chinwo’s album features the highlife-style tracks such as ‘Bor Ekom’, ‘Regular’, ‘Imenem’, ‘Correct’, ‘I am’ and ‘Inhedinma’. These songs are infused with jazzy brass melodies, smooth basslines, and a hint of calypso flavor.

Mercy who comes from a humble background in Rivers State, Nigeria, is the first of six children. The singer recalls how supportive her family have been of her ever since she gained an interest in music. One can certainly sense Mercy’s passion for music from listening to her albums.
Her masterpiece, the track entitled Bor Ekom is a true stamp of Chinwo’s magnificent vocal prowess. The song features a scat and Zulu drawl that beautifully encapsulates that South African flavor, an influence that the artist has really gravitated towards.

The artist brings listeners harmonies that reminds us that artists like her have fulfilled their “responsibility to tell the world about God. She delightfully sings the words, “You never change…You won’t start now” and applies some intensity when she sings the line, “How excellent is your name”. ‘My Responsibility’ is the perfect recipe for new levels of worship.
Music in Africa magazine reviewed Mercy’s latest album described the track ‘Igwe’ ft. Fiokee Chinwo “as a soft ballad fit for a musical. “Her voice becomes slightly animated as the digital instrumentation does a pizzicato number. It’s almost like a whole orchestra comes in at “Oh, what a father I have in you”, immediately creating imagery of heaven’s armies coming to the rescue when you choose God over anyone else. This is the album’s most classical piece.”

Other notable tracks on the album include “Omekannaya” a soulful acoustic ballad with a divinely Zulu acapella feel, “Imenem”- reminiscent of Kenny Kore’s ‘Hallelujah’ and Correct, a modern calypso-inspired delight.
The album is of course filled with great songs and is an expected hit by Nigeria’s favorite gospel starlet.
