Darey Pray For Me - Gbadura Fun Mi

What a fabulous song! Pray For Me Gospel song

Let me say first and foremost that I have never been a Darey fan. I don’t deny his exquisite vocals but I have never followed his music and the few of his songs that I have heard in passing have never resonated.

Until now…

Again I say what a fabulous song!

Pray For Me Gospel song

Darey tells a story that most (if not all of us) can relate to ie. leaving the nest. He sings about leaving home for an uncertain future in the city. His father is not for it and warns him about the risks of his departure but he is resolute and chooses to follow his heart even though he knows he could end up lost and broken. With a request to his father to pray for him, he embarks on his journey.

The second half of the song has Darey writing to his father four years and eleven months later.

Life has not been easy.

He has had to struggle every day just to get by but despite it the biting challenges his resolve has not wavered. Again he requests that is father prays for him as he pushes on his journey.

Darey backed up by the Soweto Gospel Choir (who actually sing in Yoruba I kid you not) are in fine form here. They paint a picture of leaving home to follow your dreams without sugar-coating the blood, sweat and tears of the journey.

It is an inspired piece and a breath of fresh air in what I find to be the increasingly vapid Naija music scene. Do give it a listen and check out the great video which showcases traditional, nostalgic scenes and arouses feelings of longing and wistfulness. The journey ain’t been easy on any of us and that’s the truth. The exemplary Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva are in it too!
