Nathaniel Bassey has since become the biggest gospel music export out of Nigeria for three years now. This Song Imela among others, is one of the songs that made him that. According to Micah Stampley, the song is widely sung in the US and many other nations. the song has been performed on many stages around the world by various gospel acts, now that is what is called making impact. Even Mary Mary’s Erica Campbell was not left out of the Nathaniel Bassey bug. Truly this man of God is a world changer.
Not only is the song is now globally popular, Nathaniel Bassey spent most of his late last year, outside Nigeria ministering on various stages. I remember calling his manager to book a recording, and she told me that he is not in the country. Nigerian gospel music will never be the same again.
Enitan Adaba also is gradually developing her brand and has also reaped from the collaboration.
And Your faithfulness each day
I’m convinced it’s not because I am worthy –
to receive the kind of love that You give.
But I’m grateful for your mercy,
and I’m grateful for your grace
And because of how You’ve poured out Yourself,
I have come to sing this song out in praise [Refrain] Imela, Imela (Thank You! Thank You!)
Okaka, Onyekeruwa (Great and Might creator of the world)
Imela, Imela, (Thank You! Thank You!)
Eze m Oh (My King) [Verse 2]
Who am I to sing Your praises?
Who am I to worship You?
It’s Your blood that makes the difference in me
And made a way to enter into Your throne
I could not come near Your presence
I could never sing Your song
But the sacrifice on Calvary’s tree
is the reason I can cry out today
Onyedikagi? Ekene diri gi(Who is like You? All Glory belongs to You)
Onyene mema (He who does good)
Onyedikagi? Ekene diri gi (Who is like You? All Glory belongs to You)
Onye nagworia (Mighty Healer)
