Prospa Ochimana, the man with the resonant voice released his debut album in the first week of October 2019 titled: Ekwueme to the World Project.
Today I will be sharing what I called “Music Exam” of this amazing work by Minister Prospa Ochimana.
“Music Exam” is my sharing of notes and review from my listening to music works across the world. I typically provide in-depth thoughts and commentary on anything from flows, rhymes, beats, creative direction, track placement, concepts and production.
Before I continue, the Ekwueme to the World Project (Album) has gotten over 245, 000 Streams on Africa’s leading music platform Boomplay since release in October 2019.
Also, some of the tracks from this album has been doing well on Youtube as well; Ekwueme feat. Osinachi Nwachukwu – over 28 Million Views on Youtube, You Are Jehovah – over 2.1 Million Views on Youtube, The Great I am – over 84, 000 Views on Youtube among others doing well.
I will be starting the review in the order of the tracklisting.
1. You Are Jehovah – The song started with soft violin instrumentals, the progression of the song is a solemn one that will put you in the mood to worship God. This song talks about the mightiness of God and how He is God. It got a lot of clamping cymbals at several intervals and the production of this song was amazingly done. Watch “You are Jehovah Video” by Prospa Ochimana below.
2. Never Look Around (Yahweh) – This particular track starts off with a soft rocky vibe. The amazing things I like also is the rock electric clanging guitar you hear at the back round. You know what, the background voice did an amazing job too. It’s one of my favourite song on this album. Watch “Never Look Around (Yahweh) Video” by Prospa Ochimana below.
3. Ekwueme featuring Osinachi Nwachukwu – Meeeeeen this song is something else, it got over 150, 000 download on ExplicitBlog.com since it was released originally in 2017. This track started off with some keyboard strings and violin flow. It’s an Igbo (a major language in the eastern part of Nigeria) song mixed with English lyrics. The instrumental is a good one too and the Igbotic chant will make you fall on your feet and worship God. Watch “Ekwueme featuring Osinachi Nwachukwu Video” by Prospa Ochimana below.
4. Worthy To Be Praised – This one is cool too. I love the slow afro feel and talks about giving worship to God cos he is worthy to be praised. The rhythm of this song is an amazing one. You will Love it! Watch “Worthy To Be Praised Video” by Prospa Ochimana below.
5. Chioma Song – Another song that will put you in the mood of thanksgiving to God. This one has a high tempo with the rock electric guitar at the background. I love rock music (winks). This production was neatly and professionally done as well. Watch “Chioma Song Video” by Prospa Ochimana below.
6. Dojima Nwojo featuring Abigail Omonu – This song is my favourite song out of my favourite songs on this album (smiles). Tho I am not been sentimental here because it’s an Igala song or which I come from the Igala tribe, but I am proud of my native tongue and everything around it, couple with the amazing work done on it. Dojima Nwojo means, give glory to God and it featured a leading Indigenous Igala Artiste. The feel of this song is a soft one you will love.
7. The Great I Am – Prospa actually started off his musical career with this single back then in 2014. The intro is amazing, I love it, Prospa’s sonorous voice has been for long. A song talking about the greatness of God and the production is a good one also. Watch “The Great I Am Video” by Prospa Ochimana below.
8. It All Belongs To You – I love the intro!!! It’s a rock kind of song too at some point of the song with a lot of electric guitar at the background. It seems Prospa loves rock music like myself (Winks). It actually one of my favourite on this album. Watch “It All Belongs To You Video” by Prospa Ochimana below.
9. Desperate For You – It has a highlife instrumental feel, with amazing background voices and Prospa killed it on this track with his vocals too. I love what the producer did, it’s an amazing song.
10. Not My Will featuring Joy Abu – Another amazing song you will love in this album, trust me! Joy Abu laid her voice in an amazing way in this song. I love the production and background vocals too.
11. Chioma Song II featuring Caleb David – This second Chioma Song on this Album is slower than the first one which got a more rocky feel. Caleb David did an awesome work on this song too. I love his voice, sound similar to the type of Prosa’s vocal texture.
Alright, So for real I enjoyed listening to this entire album on Boomplay. I must say Prospa Ochimana is a gift to the body of Christ here in Nigeria and to the world at large. This whole work shows depth, gratitude and one who has a love for God.
