Singer/Presenter - Muyiwa Releases Live Visuals To 'Hey Ya' off 'Live at the Apollo' Album || @officialmuyiwa

Recorded live at the Hammersmith Apollo, London in 2012. Muyiwa’s - 'Hey Ya' was born from the 100 year Azusa street celebrations in Los Angeles California in 2006.

When asked the story behind ‘Hey Ya’, Muyiwa had this to say:
 

''I was in LA broadcasting from the 100 year celebration of Azusa street, while there it had all the leading names from around the world from EA Adeboye to Brian Houston from Hillsongs, also had different Christians from different parts of the world and different streams. 

One of the days I walked into a room and I could hear was ‘Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya’ and it was American Indians all dressed up as they would in American western and they were chanting Hey Ya Ya saying these things about Jehovah and then responding with ‘Hey Ya Ya’, then I said to myself I am going to take this back to London, write a song about it and say things about God ‘Who is he that gave His life so you and I can be set free? 

Jesus Christ the son of God, He’s the King of kings and Lord of lords and end it with Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya Ya hey OOH.''

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!

Pst. Chingtok Ishaku & Nathaniel Bassey Collaborate on 'Judah's Lion' || @chingtokpastor @nathanielblow

''It’s a new era, a new turn in the tides of journey as a nation steeped deep in the ashes of partisanship, corruption, bad governance and a host of other vices.

We mark an end to the reign of terror over Nigeria, we hear the echo of a sound from Judah, the roar of the Lion, declaring the rise of a new sun upon every heart, it’s the day of His power.'' ~ Pst. Chingtok Ishaku & Nathaniel Bassey
