Mairo Ese, otherwise known as Mairo, is a gospel artiste whose "passion is worship and [whose] underlying objective is to ‘lift up the name of Yahweh and bring people closer to their Creator.' " [Source]
He recently released a single titled "Ole Hallelujah," which means "Hallelujah Song," and which he sings in his native Isoko language. Produced by Rotimi Akinfenwa, Mairo teams up with Nathaniel Bassey to produce a soulful worship song.
Here is some more information on Mairo and this particular song, courtesy of Praiseworld Radio:
[Mairo] got the song just playing the piano one morning-after singing it for Cohbams (who happens to be a friend & one of his producers). Cohbams asked that he involve Nathaniel Bassey on the track.
In his words “Hallelujah is a heavenly language and for me. This song is a song of victory praising God Almighty for the amazing things he’s doing in my life and the lives of friends and family.”
