Another dude whose music I love sooo much. In fact, when I heard “Na ba ka” the song that shot him to national prominence, I did not rest until I had purchased the album – and I was not disappointed. Looks though like he is moving away from gospellike and inspirational music to love songs. However, his new music is really beautiful too, especially the song “comforter” that features Asa.

Hear for yourself:

Na ba ka

Comforter (one of my very favorite Naija love songs)

An interesting interview on that song and his newer stuff here. Sounds like dude is planning an album on love. That explains the comforter song and this one:

Awww – I’m falling in love with him – beautiful!!

More about Jeremiah:

Jeremiah Gyang was born in Jos, Plateau State to a musically inclined family and wrote his first song at the age of 7. By observing his father who was an accomplished vocalist as well as an instrumentalist, he learned how to play both the guitar and keyboard proficiently by the age of eleven. Jeremiah worked in the Sheraton Hotels and Towers in Abuja for 3 years as a keyboardist, percussionist and vocalist. He left thereafter to join Quest Media Studios in 2002, where he worked for two years as a songwriter and producer. It was while he was at Quest media that he embarked on his own album project in 2004. That result is ‘NA BA KA’- a groundbreaking 11-track album that brilliantly fuses beats reminiscent of congo-kwaito rhythms with melodious Hausa laced R& B rhythms – a sound that has been dubbed Hausa Rock fusion. Jeremiah calls his genre of music the ‘newsbeat’ i.e. the inspiration for his music is drawn from the North, East West and South of the Planet Earth.

The new album is not out yet, but you can find the “Na ba ka” album here. Really looking forward to the “love album”.
