The Untold Chronicle Behind Preye Odede’s Wave-Making Single “Oshimiri Atata”

–  “Oshimiri Atata” by Preye Odede chronicles Gospel music minister’s journey perfectly

The ministry of Preye Odede will always remain distinct and cannot be replicated. You have some artiste that only come ones in a generation. The likes of Whitney Houston, Nath King Cole, Michael Jackson, Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, Sinach, Joepraize to name a few… and of course, there is Preye Odede!

Specially anointed for such a time as this, God’s out-poured life embodied in a humble vessel that contrasts the magnitude of gift and anointing that is contained therein, Preye Odede combines aesthetics with anointing and the results are life transforming songs that have left their indelible marks in the sands of this generation, spiraling into undeniable testimonies, ricocheting all over the world!

When Preye Odede put out his debut album “My Script” in 2012, “Ebezina” stood out and infiltrated the core of Gospel Music till date. Speaking with Cool FM OAP, Jibike in 2014, he said he wrote “Ebezina” in the “middle of serious hardship. At a point where we were thrown out of our house and rendered homeless… in 2009.”

“Bulie” was a follow up on the success of “Ebezina”. The video has garnered over 2 million views on Youtube – Preye’s channel alone. He featured a remix of the single in his 2017 sophomore album titled“Ready” and collaborated with UK based Ghanaian Gospel artiste, the critically acclaimed Sonnie Badu of“Baba” fame.

“I Am Real” shot by video director Patrick Elis in the USA presented Preye Odede in new light in terms of his brand. As the distinctive nature of his ministry attained zenith height, it couldn’t be business as usual… literally. Preye’s releases, presentations, PR strategies and overall outlook took a new turn as well!

He announced his sophomore album with the rapturous worship/supplication song with the title“Oshimiri Atata (River that never Runs Dry)”. The song which critics have said, rivals the effort of “Ebezina”, although there are similarities speckled all through both songs, received wide acceptance within and outside the country, so much that when the “Ready” album finally dropped, it’s still one of the songs that stood out. He recently ministered the single in COZA, Abuja at Voltage Warship with Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and the atmosphere was electric! Pastor Fatoyinbo described the ministration as “an amazing time of worship!” 

Taking a look at the transformation Preye Odede’s life and ministry has experienced – before and after the debut album “My Script”.  The amazing grace that came to his rescue did not transform his life and left him at the point but he has gone from grace to grace ever since. One will agree that the only appropriate outburst is “Oshimiri Atata (River that never Runs Dry).”

Talking about the journey so far and the future expectations, Preye Odede said:

“I don’t look like my past because of God’s grace and mercy … At times when you are down and weary, draw strength from God, who is the fountain that never runs dry and with that river ever flowing, i am certain that God is set to supersede the present and do endless wonders in your life.”

Clarence Fountain Of Blind Boys Of Alabama Dies At 88

Clarence Fountain, who led the award-winning Blind Boys of Alabama for more than 60 years, died on Sunday at a hospital near his home in Baton Rouge, La. He was 88.

The Blind Boys’ manager, Charles Driebe, said the cause was complications of diabetes.

The Blind Boys of Alabama sang a raucous, exuberant style of gospel that mixed harmony vocals with impassioned call-and-response shouting intended to rouse an audience into a religious fervor.

Explaining the group’s sound to The New York Times in 1987, Ray Allen, a folklorist and music historian, said it had evolved from the more staid style known as jubilee gospel into one that is distinguished by “a prominent lead singer shouting and preaching and backed by a rhythm-and-blues band.”

“Vocally, it made use of stronger rhythms and vocal techniques, such as moaning, melisma, falsetto and trance-induced kinds of behavior that had obvious antecedents in Caribbean or West African worship,” Mr. Allen continued. “The jubilee groups, by contrast, stood up straight and didn’t move around much.” The Blind Boys, he said, “were at the forefront of the transition.”

Mr. Fountain, who had a deep, versatile voice that became weathered over the decades, often sang lead. When he did, he could sound as explosive as James Brown. (Mr. Driebe said it might be more accurate to say that Mr. Brown sounded like Mr. Fountain.)

The Blind Boys had their roots in the mid-1940s at a segregated school for the blind in Talladega, Ala., where Mr. Fountain and five friends formed a group they originally called the Happy Land Jubilee Singers.

Image result for clarence fountain

Renamed the Blind Boys, the group was well established on the gospel circuit by the time many other performers, including Otis Redding, Little Richard, Sam Cooke and Mr. Brown, became famous for moving from gospel to secular music.

The Happy Land Jubilee Singers shortly before the group was renamed the Blind Boys of Alabama in 1948. From left were Johnnie Fields, Mr. Fountain, J.T. Hutton, Ollie Thomas, George L. Scott and Velma Traylor.

Mr. Fountain said that over the years some producers had tried to persuade him and the group to make pop records, but he refused.

“I didn’t turn my back on the Lord,” he said on the NPR program “Morning Edition” in 2001. “I said I wanted to sing gospel music and I wanted to sing it for the Lord.”

Still, the Blind Boys’ foot-stomping sound appealed to secular audiences — and to secular artists. They worked with Lou Reed, Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Neil Diamond, Tom Waits, Aaron Neville and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver.

Beginning in the 1990s, the Blind Boys became more open to covering songs by artists like Mr. Reed, the Rolling Stones, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Dylan, Prince andCurtis Mayfield, as long as the lyrics did not betray their spirituality.

The results could be striking. In one instance the group sang the lyrics to “Amazing Grace” over the Animals’ arrangement of the traditional song “The House of the Rising Sun.”

In 1994 the Blind Boys received a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. Their “Spirit of the Century” won the 2001 Grammy for best traditional gospel album, and they went on to win four more Grammys before receiving a lifetime achievement award from the Recording Academy in 2009.

The Blind Boys lineup has changed over the years. The last surviving original member is Jimmy Carter, who is still touring with the group.

Mr. Fountain married Barbara Robertson in 1999. She survives him. His survivors also include several children.
