    Hi guys!
    How are we all doing? Welcome to another amazing week of Afritunes musical performances. I went mia for two weeks, I know and I'm so sorry. I'm still writing my examination but the goodnews is that I have just one examination left so I'll be more available soon.

    For this week, I decided to go back to my gospels because last time I sang a love song, I was told that I'm acting like someone that's being chiked😂 I hope I'm behaving well today. The culprits involved should leave me a review in the comment section.

    On my reasons for choosing this song, first it's a lovely one and it's very meaningful. "Imela" is a Yoruba word that means "thank you". The song is that of gratitude. I'm grateful to God for a lot of things but most importantly for courage to get through life each day. For a long time, I'm talking about months, I haven't felt good. A lot of things I was handling went wrong so it weighed me down because I invested so much money and time in those things. I ended up so confused on how to move on and what to move on to. I wept for days, was lonely for other days too and very unmotivated. Looking at my blog, one could tell that I haven't written an article for ages because I can't put the pieces of anything together.

    Despite all these, I'm grateful for life, for courage to wakeup daily and breathe, for ability to feel pain because trust me everything happens for a good reason and better days are coming.

    I also asked God for provision. I needed money to surprise my brother on his birthday which was last week. It struck me that all my life I've never appreciated him. It's sad that I'm always giving people I'm not related to gifts, sometimes people who haven't impacted in me as much, people who turned out to not be genuine but I forgot my brother. I'm grateful because I was able to get him a quality gift.

    I also chose this song because of the combination of Igbo and Yoruba dialect in the lyrics. Since AfriTunes is about celebrating African music, I decided to celebrate the culture too.
    So I'm hoping you enjoy my rendition and it encourages you to be grateful. See you all on the next post.
