the gospel music industry titled ”Ola”. Oto Laleye who is referred to
in some quarters as the Father of Gospel Music in Ireland, said ”this
track Ola was created as a ladder to get our worship to that very realm
of the spirit and trust to our Almighty God. My aim was to create an
atmosphere of nostalgia and emotion as the ear heard it.
know what makes Yoruba songs so special are the melodies our Fathers and
their fathers before them used that consistently continue to grasp our
ears at every listen.
Ola is a well known song within the Yoruba
community, a song that is powerful in message, emotional and soothing in
melody. With this it was only fair that my arrangement only gave
support to the splendour that was already existent”.
