seeking my purpose two

seeking my purpose one

While I woke up early
Early into kidulthood
I look up the sky and stare
The dawn fades into stars

As the day breaks into beautiful sunshine
Father's horticulture blossoms
Flowers bursts out as if to smile
All I wanted daily was to wake
Pleasure found in food and sleep
Just seeing the beautiful world
I see beauty and I know it
That in nature, there is purpose

As I grow up to face the world,
There's more than sight, I feel
The gentle words of a lover
It cuts through deep
Touch on my empty face
I feel every stroke of the fingers
Kiss planted on my bare lips
I feel the slushy moist
Tickles from the whispers
The laughs and the cry
There's purpose in that too
They all teach love

So everything made, I knew
To the living, has its own purpose
They happen as they should
Now, its fright that man fades
Like that beautiful morning
that dissolves briskly into dark night
And so will I, and so shall you
From that boy that wanted nature
To a man who now can feel
And more to come, more of us
Time ticks, purpose evanescence

There comes an age, when the night's dark
The hair is grey, the feet feeble
And man is weak, incomprehensible
A purpose found futile
It rather be known when the sun is out
Like the flowers, for beauty
Like the kiss, for love
Like the air, for breathe
Like the food for survival
Not here to fill vacuum
So I diligently seek
That for purpose alone I'll live

PXG music contest 2011

This post is featuring G.R.I.P and I'm happy to put this up. G.R.I.P should be back up next month so you should definitely check it out.

If you think Gospel music is still that ‘boring’ genre of music you listen to only when you visit grand-ma? Think again! pXg Music Contest 2011, organised by G.R.I.P, re-established the relevance of Gospel music to the industry.
It was Friday, 2nd of December 2011, the pXg music contest held at SOL House in Manchester, UK delivered gospel entertainment on all counts; fun, laughter, poetry, thrill, soul-steering music, and even suspense. Converging four dynamic upscale Manchester church Choirs; Lighthouse Chapel, NCC, God Centred Voices and Naacah, the winner of the contest will record a single in a top music recording studio, plus a music video.

The judges on the night were music instructor, Sam Amusan and the talented duo - the Levites312, who themselves won a music contest few years ago. With an array of talented acts and exciting performances, Maria opened the show with a rendition of Mali Music ‘All I have to give’; Sean did a unique dance to the worship song ‘Awesome God’. Guest artiste, David Nwator created a buzz as he rapped with a live band to his songs – crack the sky, look for me - before calling the talented Daniel Walker on stage to join him for the ‘Enough’ song. MOBO award nominee Faith Child got the crowd buzzing with his sultry performance as he shared his testimony on the track ‘Flashback’ and performed other tracks off his “Illumination” album.

One attendee had this to say of the event “as a Christian, I really enjoyed my time at this show. It was a good way to relax, have fun, meet with new people and an awesome start to my weekend”.
Finally, there was a photo shoot after the event and people mingled and made friends.

The winners on the day were NCC. The single and video will be out in February 2012.

pXg is coming your town really soon …

of a worthy beginning

It's a new day, the cloud bursts out into a beautiful sunshine.
I live in the realization of the spectacular being
Knowledge of the most high
I'm a carrier of destiny
The life of God is deposited into me
I'm a living proof of the kingship right
The spirit of the most high dwells on my inside

I step into greater heights
Breaking new grounds, doors are opening
I have a firm reassurance of the future not lived
An excellent spirit, not of geekiness, but of success
New insights, impeccable brilliance

Grace and goodness has found me
I live in abundance,
Fullness all around me
Making greatness out of little I'm given
This is the life and I'm living it
In plenteous and in health
I'm smiling into more than enough
