Mmema, one of Nigeria’s top gospel artists, is thrilled to announce the release of not just a single this time but two new singles, entitled “Idara” (Rejoice) produced by Roy-Xperience.
“Idara” (Rejoice) is a song of celebration structured in familiar arrangement with verse and chorus so the average listener will immediately feel at home. “Idara” is a traditional song with a contemporary feel carved out of Apostle Paul’s popular charge in Phillipians 4:4, “Rejoice and again I say rejoice.” It’s vibrant, melodious with punchy phrases.
Once again it’s a mixed blend of two local dialects and English language. This combination gives it a soothing embellishment making it danceable and enjoyable. “Idara” has a rich variety of interesting instruments which make it distinctive and memorable. You will have a reason to put on your dancing shoes.
“IDARA” (REJOICE) LYRICS
Kop idara ke esit mmi 4x
Its time to dance and celebrate the Lord
Lord I wanna take this time
To thank You for all You’ve done for me
You have blessed me
And all around me
Is deeper than the ocean floor
You are tasted and trusted
You are the great God
Even when the enemies gather
You have always been my Father
I call you Jehovah
Idi Olopu Judah (Lion of Judah)
Afo omodiong mi o (You have blessed me)
Ndinam nso nno fi (What shall I do in response)
Edidem mme ndidem (King of kings)
Di bo ekom ke inua mmi o o (Take the praise from my lips)
Itoro enyene fi ke nsinsi (Adoration is Yours forever)
Ndito abasi edi tiene mi ekwo .. (Children of God join me and sing)
