This is another song my neighbor played into the catalog of songs to be reviewed on Ogefash Photo Blog. She played it non stop, and the song caught my attention. And now it is on Ogefash Photo Blog.

WHAT IS THE SONG OME KA NNAYA ABOUT

The word “Ome ka Nnaya” is an Igbo word in Nigeria that means “He does like His father.”

The song basically talks about Jesus as the son of God and how He acts exactly like the father; which is derived from the title of the song.

In the song, the artiste reverences God for His holiness and His words that always come to pass. She also praises him for the good things He has done for her and how far He has brought her in life. She vows to stick with Jesus forever. She further shows her appreciation to God with intense praise, and implores God to accept it.

The lyrics are uplifting and partly sequential.  It is a slow tempo song. The major instruments used include the drums, piano, shakers, and tambourine.

The song is quite lengthy. As at the time of reviewing this song, the artiste has not yet released the video for the song.
