Nigeria’s Multi-platinum ‘Afro & B’ artist Darey has announced his anticipated return with new single ‘Jah Guide Me’, accompanied by a stunning official music video, out 14th August on Livespot Entertainment.

Exploring the importance of hope and inspiration in these difficult times, ‘Jah Guide Me’ see’s Darey utilise a feelgood, relaxed production, filled with warm percussion and uplifting brass arrangements to bring his message to life that, even on a good day, everyone is looking to the higher powers who will help and guide us to a better and brighter future.

 

The striking visual, shot on location in Lagos and brought to life by Darey himself alongside director Mex Ossai, seeks to explore the vision of Africa from an African’s perspective. Showcasing the creativity and vibrance of the people, young and old amidst the stunning surroundings of the white sand and beaches Nigeria has to offer, the video see’s Darey guide us through sanctuaries to the fields and waters whilst encapsulating the essence and beauty of those from across the country.

 

“My latest single “Jah Guide Me”, represents a return to what I love best, creating and telling compelling stories that resonate with everyone” Darey explains. “The song comes at a critical period in our humanity where we have been reminded of just how fleeting life is and how supplication, prayer, spirituality, and the belief in a higher power often sees us asking for guidance as we navigate these tough times.”

 

Also discussing the music video, Darey enthuses; “the approach is carefully styled and curated and exudes a vibe I term Afrofuturism. Edgy, cultural, cosmopolitan yet very relatable as it mirrors life for the ordinary person.”

 

The son of the legendary African Jazz Musician and entertainer Art Alade, Dare Art Alade, professionally known as Darey is a multiple award-winning singer, musician, songwriter, music producer, showstopper extraordinaire and entrepreneur. Since gaining exposure across Africa as runner up in the 2004 season of Music talent search reality TV show, Project Fame, Darey has made an indelible mark on the Nigerian and African music scene.

 

As a seasoned live performer, he has graced the stage alongside Beyoncé, Wizkid, Jay Z, Ciara, Cardi B, Burna Boy, Sean Paul, Usher, R Kelly, Akon, Lionel Richie and many more.  His albums “From Me 2 U,” “unDAREYted,” and “Double Dare” have sold several million albums cumulatively and helped him amass millions of fans across Africa and the diaspora.

 

Also a creative entrepreneur, Darey is the co-founder of Livespot360, a 360º creative collective responsible for 2019’s Livespot X Festival which saw Darey bring Cardi B to Africa for the first time as she headlined across its Lagos and Accra events.

 

Following the success of the 2016 album ‘Naked’, Darey makes a triumphant return with ‘Jah Guide Me’, and proves to be the kind of musical escapism we need during these turbulent times.

 

‘Jah Guide Me’ was written and produced by Pheelz and Darey.

Minister Yvonne releases official music video for “Give Me Rest”

Hot on the heels of her recently released ‘Faith’ album, UK-based singer-songwriter, Minister Yvonne releases a powerful fifth video off the album, titled ‘Give Me Rest’.

The mouthwatering visual is available now on YouTube and can be viewed below

The singer who doubles as an HR Specialist with the British Armed Forces said that this song was inspired by Matthew 11:28 “Come unto Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

The 2021 UK-based Gospel Artiste of the Year at the Ghana Music Awards UK added that “the world is full of stress and we face challenges, hardships, trials, wearies everyday of our lives that sometimes makes it difficult for us to subdue and have dominion. The song is therefore a sweet invitation for those who are labouring to seek rest from God”.

The melodious ballad-themed song since its release on last Friday night has been garnering numbers on social media.

“Give Me Rest” was produced at the UBBS Studio. The song is powerful, edifying and refreshingly soothing – from the lyrics that cry out to the soul of the listener to the production.

In the music video, Minister Yvonne is seen in multiple locations throughout the bold aesthetically appealing video – including sprawling and lush outdoor nature scenes and a dungeon where she is choreographically surrounded by dancers and eye-popping costumes.

The video features Minister Yvonne in a number of incredibly striking looks, donning a slew of designer looks in the song’s accompanying visual. Then the scene switches to a dungeon where chained Minister Yvonne is seeking for rest, salvation and freedom from hardships.

The fashion doesn’t stop there, however. Never one to miss an opportunity for a head-turning costume change in which Minister Yvonne later switches into a custom print ensemble—a gothic yellow Victorian ball gown.

Directed by FiMenz, the ‘Give Me Rest’ visual is a well-conceptualised piece of work, full of pleasant activity, gripping images brought to life by the sheer sweetness of sound. The production concept, scenery, costume and lighting beautifully synchronise with the sound rhythm.

Minister Yvonne has always believed that Gospel music videos can compete on a level playing field with many mainstream videos in the industry.
