Telemi drops new single titled Password ft M.Dikoy. In this song the life of Christ is described as the password that opens every door of our lives.
Pass word is an powerful song in an Afro pop beat that describes Jesus as the only one who gives everything that we have and He is the only name that is given to a man through which every knee bows and salvation is guaranteed.
The song was produced by Xmon.
Telemi shares the inspiration behind the song, he relates,
“It happened some years back when i needed to obtain an information on my daughter’s laptop which has been pass worded (if grammar permits). I couldn’t achieve this until I put a call across to her in school and she sent her names in a particular as the needed code to assess the gadget. I inserted this digits and the system opened. .. OMG!
I sat down for a while to ponder over this scenario, I asked myself, and how can my daughter’s name become a code I couldn’t decode until she told me. I never knew God wanted to open my eyes to see beyond that level. Just as I was thinking, I heard the Holy Spirit ministering to me saying, man, just like the name of your daughter became a secret code you need to open a gadget, that is how the name JESUS is the essential and the indispensable secret need of this world that many do not know except those He tells or His father in heaven reveals to.” – Telemi
Message to the parents from Timi Osukoya,
“Please don’t force your children into choosing a career in life but guide them towards what you see them manifesting at early stages in life. I remember my father almost stopped my education because of my passion for music that led to the purchase of Fela Ransome Kuti’s album “IKOYI BLINDNESS” -#7 then when I was in form four. Today God has taken over the spirit to His own glory as you can see.”
