Johnny Drille "Papa"

Johnny Drille’s “Papa” the highly motivating and inspiring alternative single was released on the 14th of June, 2019. The song is a huge inspiration to listener’s due to its message and its presentation.

The song talks about how Johnny’s father constantly reminds him about the power of prayer and how he should always put it into practice when he is in a real state of confusion and difficulty that seems overwhelming.

He also uses the advice of his father on the song to encourage people who are afraid of being in the worst situations. He urges them to pray as well and watch things come together for good. Johnny Drille’s “Papa”  is a slow tempo rendition which is covered all up with the piano and percussion to help cement its aim and objective in the heart of the listener.

The vocal input of Johnny Drille on this song is just world-class and for an alternative song, it has done pretty well on Nigerian radio as it is being played to give strength to the weak and provide enthusiasm for the pessimist. “Papa” has a narrative video to it which was directed by Clarence Peters and it has just over 123 thousand views on YouTube.


Quotable Lyrics:

He calls me to pray
He tells the Lord, to watch over me
Oh my Papa, he can like to say
As you go away, don’t forget where you came
If you lose your way, you can pray
Don’t be afraid, don’t lose faith
You will find your help, there’ll be a way
Just remember to pray and you’ll be okay
He calls everyday
He asks me, Son, I hope you’re doing okay
Oh my Papa
He too dey fear say I go go astray
‘Cause I walk a stranger land and my help is so far away

    A friend introduced me to Johnny Drille’s songs when he first dedicated “Awa Love” to me. Since then, I can’t enough of his songs, even had to download some myself.
