Jovani – Alayo

Alayo is another hit song from Badejo Abiodun Olusope professionally known as Jovani(@realjovani). He is a fast-rising and award-winning gospel musician with a passion to spread the Good News through his music. Alayo is a song with a message of hope in these times of hopelessness and depression. It resonates with the firm belief that there is power in the name of Jesus and if you call on Him during difficult times He will answer you. Alayo means “Joyful one” in Yoruba and it is sung over a retro-sound with a calm delivery of the lyrics over the horns and percussions. The lyrics are true events that occurred in the life of the singer/songwriter, describing Alayo in his words: “Alayo is full of personal experiences that span from past to present. It’s a summary of my life, a peek into my world”. Jovani drew inspiration from Revelations 5:5 “Fear not for Jesus Christ has triumphed” and Psalm 30:5 “Weeping may last through the night but joy comes with the morning” while writing this song. Alayo is sure to bless you, download, listen, and share.


Verse one: Once upon a time,
I had no way out in life.
I had no food, no water to drink.
I had nowhere to live,
my friends became foes.
But now that Jesus has come,
I am a happy person.

Chorus: Now that Jesus has come,
He turned my tears into joy,
He wiped my tears away,
Come and rejoice with me.

Verse Two: He made me victorious,
He made me a happy person.
He wiped my tears away,
Come and rejoice with me.
He saved me from death,
His goodness over my life
cannot be quantified,
He didn’t make me a slave to my mates.
Come and rejoice with me.
The Mighty One by The Red Sea,
The Humbler of Pharaoh.
The Incomparable God,
Come and rejoice with me.
They planned to mock me,
They planned to make me an object of ridicule.
But God didn’t allow it.
Come and rejoice with me.
