When TY Bello released her current album, The Morning SongBook on October 10, 2014 (10-10-2014), there were a couple of songs that I was immediately drawn to.
One of them was the 2nd track titled, Alagbada Ina. From the moment I heard it, I knew it was just a matter of time before I would share it here. So, here I am sharing it with you! :-)
Alagbada Ina is one of the Yoruba names for God, and it means (you guessed right) The One who is dressed in fire, or "clothed with fire."
In this song, another Yoruba name for God pops up: Arugbo Ojo, which means "Ancient of Days."
With these descriptions, you can already guess what this song is about.
On this track, TY Bello collaborates with a Nigerian gospel artiste from Benue State, Msugh Anom. You can check out his other songs on ReverbNation. He currently resides in Makurdi, Benue State.
Honestly, after listening to this song, I was hoping and praying that there would be more collaborations between them. It hasn't happened yet, but you know, hope is a powerful thing. :D
What I particularly liked about this song was this: no person outshines the other, There's just a balance and each person "owns" his/her part. Just lovely! No complaints from me.
All that is left is to encourage you to listen to it for yourself on SoundCloud. For some reason, I can't share the widget here. :-(

Have a great week!
P.S. I'm glad to be back! There's more to come. :-)
