Ify Odugbemi popularly known as Ify is an unrepentant lover of Jesus, singer-songwriter, worship leader, and convener of GLOW (God Loves Our Worship). She just premiered her latest single ”Arugbo Ojo”, accompanied by a creatively crafted lyric video.
This song comes after a few years of silence, and as she chooses to call it, ‘the wilderness season’. The song was born during one of the spontaneous worship sessions she hosted on Instagram tagged Worship Precedes Wonder, a time of communing with God through songs of the Spirit.
According to Ify, In an encounter moment, the Lord asked her like he did his disciples “Who do you say I am?” This question took her on a 30-day journey into the names of God, a journey that eventually spanned the duration of 4 months. On one of the days, she woke up with the word ‘Arugbo Ojo’, and as she continued to ponder on this name of God, a devotional and this new sound was born.
“With this sound”, Ify says “we are reminded about the awesomeness of the God we serve and how aged yet so relevant He is. He is the first-hand witness to every event, and nothing is new to him. This helps us to fully place our trust in him.”
