“A dog that dances for its master will surely eat what the master eats” – Pst. E.A. Adeboye.

“I was a guest Minister in a Church in the States where the choir raised the song ‘Tambira Jehovah’ and the atmosphere changed with everybody dancing.

Though I had no idea what the lyrics meant, I just whispered to myself  – It is my turn to dance!
On a second thought, I took a deep plunge into the Internet in frantic search for Tambira Jehovah.
I was deeply blessed by Mkhululi Bhebhe/Joyous Celebration’s version of the song – Tambira Jehovah.

Tambira Jehovah is a Shona folk song from Zimbabwe meaning “Come and dance for the Lord”. That nailed it. I was greatly inspired to pop up my version and on my return to Nigeria, I consulted with Daniel Adegbenro, a South African trained musicologist whom I was very certain could best interpret the song.

Tambira Jehovah is laced with English, Shona, Swahili and Yoruba languages.
