TOPE YADAH has released a single called “Name Above All Names.” She says; The world stage with the pandemic and all the protests and unrest right now makes our longing for something higher very valid. For a believer, only one name comes to mind to conquer every fear and unease caused by these issues and life’s cares. That name is JESUS. The name that is above the Coronavirus, above fear, barrenness, violence, every situation.”
The song was received by inspiration while reading the book “The Name of Jesus” by Kenneth Hagin. The song was very instrumental in a very difficult and trying time in the life of the songwriter and has turned into a victory chant even as she celebrates the birthday of the daughter God gave her after many years of waiting on the Lord. Truly the name of Jesus has it all; power, dominion, salvation and victory.

SoyeSings titles this one “Omemma” which is a top tier language in the eastern part of Nigeria called the Igbo language. It translates to “someone who does good” and in this context that person is our Heavenly Father, who forever remains faithful and true to his children, showing love abundantly till eternity.
This dynamic minstrel is known for her sensational and Holy Ghost induced approach to worship and praise, and “Omemma” is a song which totally exemplifies these qualities. A song that not only creates a spiritual and mental picture of heaven, it actually has the power to transmogrify one’s whole being, taking and leaving you all alone in His presence.
“Omemma” is a glorious song of gratitude and should be on the lips of every believer and non-believer alike. Life is spiritual, and the life we live is the Zoe of God who watches over us daily, charting our courses to ensure favour, goodness, blessings and grace finds us in our daily endeavors. It’s only reciprocal that we give him praise every day for truly our God is a good God.
