There’s been a lot of talks on Social Media attacking veteran gospel artiste and producer, Mbomboyo for stooping low to create his Cover version for Unik Brodaz street popping single, “Amem”. (Click here if you missed listening to the song)
Here, he shares his inspiration behind creating the controversial version of the song.
1. “Abasi mmi enye ado de SOURCE”. That line in the song by Unik drew my attention to this song. Recognising God as the source of success, that what is difficult can be easily achieved with God’s help. This has been a regular theme in my 20 year old music career.
2. I believe Unik Brodaz asked “Amem?” in a rhetoric way… The song is actually recognising someone’s past efforts at hard work and success. This inspired me greatly.
3. The fact that people were now answering “AMEM” question with “IMEMME”… I hate the impossibility mind-set… I am ‘MBOM-MBOYO’… Nothing should stop anyone from doing stuffs especially fulfilling dreams and helping others in any way possible… I decided to remind people that it’s all about perspective, a positive perspective!
4. Christ came to restore us back to the REALM of MKPO IMEM… the curse of sin and the law is broken… So IN CHRIST and WITH CHRIST… ÁMÈM. Matthew 11:28-30 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. FOR MY YOKE [IS] EASY, AND MY BURDEN IS LIGHT.
5. Unik Brodaz have (over the years) been consistent and constantly churning our great songs. This time around they have a song on de lips of everyone. I call it the street anthem… first Ibom song in recent times that’s made our DJs and OAPs forget imported songs…
So this cover is my way of appreciating them for penning down these lyrics, producing and promoting “Amem”… my contribution the “Amem” brand and I wish others would join too. Runtown’s “Mad Over You” had 3700 covers and broke records.
