Contemporary singer-songwriter, Yemi Alafifuni is excited to officially release his new single, “Chains Fall“. Inspired by his struggles of being tied down with constant shame and lack, Yemi found a solution that works in the name of Jesus. He wants his listeners to know that walking with God holds much strength and there’s real power in the name and person of Jesus.
Combining acoustic pop & contemporary gospel, Yemi is determined to go the full length with this story of breakthrough.
The Song Inspiration: Ever since becoming a Christian, Yemi has tried to live a godly life but struggled with a life of rejection, low self-esteem, and constant need to belong. He thought that he had to perform or act in a certain way to earn approval from people around him and with God.
Yemi said; “The more I try to live up to my faith, the more I failed. The need to be accepted by anyone was great and so was the cares of life”.
With this came an unhealthy habit of self-centeredness, fear of the unknown, loneliness, guilt, unforgiveness, filth addiction, and a lifestyle of debt. The irony was Yemi had the answer within him to break the chains all along but never used it until now. The truth is every time Yemi fell short, God never left.
Yemi adds; “God kept saying but I have given you victory over this. When I thought I was strong, I would fall again & again to the point where I gave up and thought myself a hypocritical Christian. And yet He never left me! God promised and held on until I received the fullness of that victory. He is still here to catch and help me today. This is the true inspiration behind this song, but it didn’t start as most songs do.”
