Tim Godfrey, Travis Greene “Nara Ekele Mo” Song Breakdown

In the Pre-chorus “What shall I render to Jehovah?” the artists are asking what they can give back to the Lord for his abundant mercy and goodness in their lives.


In the Chorus “(Nara nara) Nara, nara eh (Receive, receive),” having concluded on giving Praise to the Lord for his goodness upon their lives, they pray to the Lord and implore him to accept their praise.

In Verse 1 “You’ve done so much for me, I cannot tell it all,” the artists are appreciative of God’s abundant goodness in their lives. They are eager to narrate to the world all that the Lord has done for them. However, they say what the Lord has done is so much that they can’t finish recounting even if they had ten thousand tongues. In essence, God’s goodness in their lives is overflowing. They say God heals their sickness, and grants their heart desires and so they have come to give back to him in thanksgiving; they call on God to accept their praise.

The Review

This song is what you call succinct! Hence this review will be succinct!

Mhen, ain’t kidding, this would be the shortest song I have ever reviewed on this platform. It did not take the ample hours other reviews take perhaps because it is just one verse with a repetition of the chorus and the pre-chorus.

Lyrically, the song comes in one verse. The chorus “What shall I render” and pre-chorus “Nara nara eeh, narekele…” were taken twice and thrice respectively.

The artists’ sang mostly in English but it was fused with one of the major languages in Nigeria- Igbo. The song is interesting and meaningful as it talks about giving back to the lord “praise” for his goodness upon one’s life.

The beginning though may be confused with the old worship song “What shall I render to the Lord (2x). I will render my soul, I will render my life, I will render what I have, what shall I render to my life”. Hence,  you may find believers in Christ singing one of the above instead of the other that they intended to sing.

The song arrangement: Verse 1- Pre-chorus- Chorus- Pre-chorus- Chorus- Pre-chorus.

Sound– This song is memorable and melodic.  They were very expressive as they sang.  The major instruments used in the composition of this song are the piano, drum, guitar, and trumpet. It is a slow-tempo beat. They also took high note which is commending because they did not go screechy. The backup singers were also unified in their voices and their vocals were very much interesting to the ears.
