MUSIC: Olubunmi - Run to You | Prod. By Wole Oni | @bunmi_adekoya @iamwoleoni

US-based Gospel music minister Olubunmi declares her dependency on God through this classic tune titled “Run to You.”

Finely crafted by the dexterous hands of ace producer Wole Oni, this single that can be classified under the World-Music genre speaks of man’s vulnerability and compares our need for the loving Father to a child’s need for the parent.


“…like a child runs to his mother, like a child runs to his father, oh God I run to You,” Olubunmi sings.


A wise man once said there is a Jesus-size vacuole in the life of every man that only Jesus can fill. As we ask for more of God, we begin to fill that vacuole till the day of revelation of Jesus. This song is a prayer that should be on the lips of every child of God till that day comes.

I thought about the love of man, having had those who’ve said the loved me and were loyal but when the going went rough they pull back.  I thought about my love for Him and the relationship I have had with Jesus since 1987 and the fact that in between so many things; the good , the bad, and the ugly have occurred yet I have seen my relationship with Him getting better and in the midst of those midnight musings I began to declare that I will trust and rest in Him because He never fails.
