New Music: XL2LETTERS “F L A S H B A C K” (@XL2LETTERS)

by Ifemidayo OdekunleMay 15, 2015
XL2LETTERS breaks his musical silence since the beginning of the year with this fresh single. On this track, XL redefines himself as a story teller, and sets out to tell a story that would last in the minds of listeners for a long time. He paints a cinematic picture with words and sounds and rhymes that is hard to forget, and jogs the imagination. The incident described is so vivid that the listeners will be compelled to ask ‘is it fiction? did it really happen?’. Its a story that will cause discussions and debates and lead to healthy self reflection…and will also lead the listener to thank The Creator for his/her life. XL2LETTERS hopes to usher in an era of lyrical story telling with deeper meanings, and hopes other artistes would do so too. The song is mixed and mastered by Dr Sankty for 17 – 17 audio lab, who does a great job at depicting the story with sounds and special effects.

Dublin based singer/songwriter Yoma is 11 years old but God has used her to bring us an apt message of hope saying “Don’t Doubt the Lord”. The uptempo Techno-pop fusion follows the theme of the song both in the tone and mood as well with Yoma’s tender voice asking:

“Why do you still doubt the Lord?

Has he not said it, will he not do it?

He just needs your faith.”

Born in Galway City in the Republic of Ireland, Ogheneyoma Azania Dodo was born into a musical family, her maternal grandfather was a singer, her mum is a choir member at CACC Dublin and Yoma’s brothers Tevin and Troy also sing.

She developed a passion for music at a young age with singers such as Chrisette Michelle, Sinach, Frank Edwards, Tasha Cobbs, Kirk Franklin, Sonnie Badu, Pastor Donnie McClurkin, Sammie Okposo, Bob [...]
