“Alagbawi” is a high praise medley talks about reaching out to everyone to praise, sing and dance to God.

“Dem go kpeme” is an afro pop dance song composed to reach out to everyone, regardless of their religions, letting people know that gospel music is not restricted to a particular beat or pattern of singing. And also drawing close people that feel they can’t find this kind of good music in gospel.

“Ekira” is a very deep song with deep lyric, inspiration from above which signifies the beautiful names of God and acknowledging how wonderful He is.

“Agbara” is a song composed to bring down the presence of the Lord, to make us accept the fact that no one is holy but ready to repent.
