Who is eMJOY

eMJOY, born Mayowa Adebajo in Nigeria, is a remarkable gospel rap artist based in Toronto, Canada, who sees himself as a channel through which God will reach our Hip-Hop/pop music generation especially. He began his music career in 2010 (after a childhood of several performances), recording and performing across Toronto. In 2011, eMJOY released his first music collection – the YGM-VTECH mixtape- and a music video too, both exclusively online to blogs.

What critics say:

·         “Emjoy knows how to take a pop cultural reference, flip it on its head, and use it to give glory to God. Emjoy’s spiritual cleverness makes him an emcee to look out for.” -Imade, writer for Rapzilla.com and Imadeintruth.com

·          “…different and unique and has the replay factor.” -lalaboiy of Notjustok.com, number one Nigerian music blog.

Here are the lyrics to the song:

eMJOY, D-Flow

If it's who you are
then be who you are

Verse 1:

Salt of the earth 
light of the world
fresh out the shaker
brighter than pearls
dispersing the savour
reflecting the 'Son' (Sun)
that's spelled with an 'o'
there's no greater one

that's who we are
by nature no sugar
since we did encounter the bright and morning star
and so we shine 
dont be shy
dip you mind up in that wine 
you may buy without a dime
off of Isaiah double 5 (Isaiah 55)
And we're Live!
Now let's ride
hope you're sparked up by the vibe
well, if you're not I'll turn it down while I drive 
break it down:
You and I constitute the eye
through which the blind may behold the Light!
simply cuz the world is darkening (darkening)
getting cold no hope in cardigans (cardigans)
Heavy souls in need of pardoning
they hollering
If your bulb may be dull then my brother get asharpening cuz...

Bridge:

They just wanna be free
groping daily for the keys for so long\
if you got that light
Raise it up where they can see\ and hold on

(2ce)

Chorus:

Raise the Banner High
Raise the Banner Higher
notwithstanding we keep it standard

Raise the Banner High
Raise the Banner Higher
There's only one name sitting on my placard

Raise the Banner High
Raise the Banner Higher
Proclaim the name of Jesus everywhere we turn up

Raise the Banner High
Raise the Banner Higher
Romans One:One Six (1:16)

We're unashamed
that's who we are
we represent

Verse 2:

Salt of the earth 
light of the world
fresh out the shaker
brighter than pearls

He's certainly heard you need
my God would get it done with speed 
but He got His need and that would be
as He wud please
Just a man like a me
we're the revival that we seek
get ourselves up off our seats
pray for boldness hit the streets
like a lot of water we would see (sea) then

Where my soldiers marching on now?
/We're marching on

(4ce)

Bridge: They just wanna be free.../

Chorus: Raise the Banner High.../

Outro chanting:
East side raise your banner high
West side raise you banner higher
South side wud you take it north
North side wud you raise it, wud you raise it high!

mmm.. YesGod o

This Mega light of mine... (word)
I'mma let it shine//
This Mega light of mine...
I'mma let it shine, I'mma let it shine
