Popular Lagos based broadcaster, Uzonna Ononye, is opening a chapter of himself unknown to many with the release of a gospel music single.
The track titled ‘Heal Our Land’ is a song of supplication written and performed by Uzonna and produced by one of Nigeria’s rising music makers, Niel.
Uzonna who became popular as a political reporter with Silverbird Television, Lagos, is now the Executive Editor, News at Nigeria’s biggest independent news channel, TVC News.
He says that the world is in a desperate need for God’s intervention as the Corona Virus sweeps through the length and breadth of the globe.
“It is fine to be expectant about the so-called vaccine, but if God does not intervene, the whole hope will be dashed. Remember that except the Lord builds, the builders simply labour in vain and if the Almighty does not watch over a city, the watchmen keep awake for nothing.
“See how the virus has turned the world around. Close to a million persons have died and no country is insulated. No class, colour or creed is spared. We are really in dire need of God right now,” he said.
The song is available on all digital stores and can either be streamed or downloaded for free.
Uzonna is no stranger to music. His first major album titled Sacrifice of Praise, was released in 1999 on the staple of Infinity Merchants.
He says HEAL OUR LAND is the first of a number of tracks that will drop in the next six months.
If you would like to be among the first few people privileged to hear Uzonna’s next music releases before they are made public.
