For the Lagos-based investment banker, something different is happening to his music and he has aptly entitled his new album, ’Elevation’.
Elevation captures a sequential narration of how any individual can move from his present status to a new level. According to him, each of the 11 tracks represents important rungs in the ladder that leads to an elevated status.
“Before an individual can witness ‘Elevation’, the tracks Oro (Word), Adaba mi (My Helper) and Afin Oba (The Palace) will do the magic. When you become elevated, you have to flaunt your new status with the tracks such as ‘All things are new’, Mo r’ogo lo (I Possess my Glory), Tuntun ni (It is new), Abanimule (Covenant Keeper) and Baba Orun mo Dupe (Heavenly Father, I thank you). All are songs that will win glory for everyone.”
Other tracks in the album “Iwo ni Olorun” and “K’aye ma se Sio” (Let the World not Mock me).
“Elevation” is an 11-track collection of inspiring gospel songs for people of different ages and genders. All songs are composed by the artist and produced by Tosin Aiyeobasan (T-fretque). In order for the song to be available to fans, the singer revealed that it will be marketed by TM Media Films Production, Abiodun Oropo Films & Records. Step Up Music
Music comes naturally to Adebote who grew up in the church, Cherubim and Seraphim where he discovered his talent at singing and composing songs at the age of 12. Apaseemi as he is fondly called has performed at many events within and outside the shores of Nigeria, including the UK and US.
“I get questions about my stage name regularly,” he admits adding, “Apase Emi (Commander of the Spirit) signifies that I command all spirits through my songs. It is not me but the Holy Spirit that does the wonders and evil spirits to bow down. Alleluyah!
