Keeping Up With The Eccentric Sammie Okposo: The Road To 'SWAG' Album || @sammieokposo

It’s been 3 singles and an intriguing anticipation since award-winning Gospel music icon - Sammie Okposo announced the forthcoming album 'Saved With Amazing Grace' [SWAG].
He announced in October of 2016 that he was going to be releasing a single every month till the album drops, 3 successive singles have heightened the anticipation for the 5th studio album with the latter building on the hype of the previous. One will think Sammie Okposo envisaged the reception of these singles and released them based on the projection.

With a new single in the works featuring American Gospel singer Jonathan Nelson, SWAG is already looking like the album of the year! What is more is that Sammie Okposo raised curiosity by featuring the American power house singer in an indigenous song titled 'Oghene Doh'.

He had previously announced the release date for the single as the 24th of February but out of respect and honour for the dearly departed brother Eric Arubayi whose final rites happen to be clashing with the date, Sammie has shifted the release to Friday, 3rd of March.

The first single off the album 'A Prayer' features Nathaniel Bassey, Gabriel Eziashi and Yoruba chants by UK-based Gospel artiste Andrew Bello. The solemn supplication is very apt for the introduction of an album due to its thematic preoccupation and of course, the features. A melodious song, with a steady-pace drum percussion that delivers a contemporary Afrocentric worship.

'I Love You Jehovah' is a run-on for the previous single. Released in December 2016, Sammie Okposo picked up the tempo and gets us familiar with the forthcoming album. Also, 'I Love You Jehovah' heightened the anticipation for the album as the song found its way into praise and worship sessions within weeks of release.

The 3rd single upholds the theme of SWAG as Sammie Okposo continues in the attitude of gratitude with piano accompaniments to intermittent horn ad-lib. 

'A Marvelous Thing' released in January of 2017 has become critically acclaimed. Sammie feared the release of the single may have damped the buzz of the previous release but also admits that it has given the album a major awareness due to the outstanding success.

With the fourth single 'Oghene Doh' featuring Jonathan Nelson only a week away, it will be difficult ignore the awareness around the album. Three [3] successful singles and a 4th on the way stand as more than enough motivation to join the train as we keep up with the iconic Sammie Okposo on the road to SWAG.

Sammie Okposo who had previously announced that 'Saved With Amazing Grace' [SWAG] will be dropping in May, said the release of the album has been pushed back to the last quarter of 2017, to accommodate the logistics for the other international collaborations on the album.

In April 2015, the xenophobic attacks spread to Johannesburg, South Africa's largest city. Locals were reportedly looting foreigners properties and attacking immigrants in general, forcing hundreds of migrants to relocate to police stations across the country. 

The Malawi authorities subsequently began repatriating their nationals, and a number of other foreign governments also announced that they would evacuate their citizens. As of April 19, at least six people have been killed in the attacks, and more than 300 people have been arrested.

Xenophobia in South Africa has awoken some kind of unrest across the globe which has burdened the renowned South African Gospel Artiste, Neville D to STAND UP and SPEAK UP to God and the people of South Africa to say NO to xenophobia as he teams up with other SA recording artistes, Judith Sephuma & Patrick Duncan.

South Africa is better than this. We are all Africans!
