I was jst lik a clay wit no porter
Standin lonely unda d rain
D challenges of life made me wonda
Cryin lik a child everday
But I heard His voice from behind saying
O bu onye tiri nwa na-ebe akwa?

I was crushed (words unclear) in d race
My (words unclear) singing
Lezienu na kpakpando m achago o
Shine dey go
I go dey shine dey go

My life was lik a fairytale
Neva thought dere’ll b a happy endin
D storms of life pushin me all around
U cud see dere’s fire on d mountain
But lik gold it refines me
Buildin my beauty
So hold on obele oga ka oge li


He’s d light of men. I’m gonna let it shine
Cos I know my body’s lik a shinin light
To shine up brighter & brighter unto d perfect day
(words unclear)
My blessins are lik d sands of d seashore
B4 me wat I see is open doors
I’ve conquered my failure
Haaaai haaaai. Oooooo yeah

(Chorus) + Bridge:
And can’t u see dat I’m a shinin star
Shine so bright. Shinin so bright
From story to glory. From zero to hero
Kpakpando m achago
Obudu Erika kataririka wuuuuu
No borrowin, no sorrowin again ooo

Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonda wat u are
Up above d world so high
Lik a diamond in d sky

1st impression:
D chorus is d bomb. I can neva get tired of listenin 2it & singin it

Vocal power:
J’Dess’ voice is as swt as honey & as refreshin as cold water in a desert

Production quality:
D production is superb & well-mixed too. U need 2hear d instrumental

Lyrical content:
D song is well-written from start 2 finish. J’Dess has clearly mastered d art of turnin even rhymeless lines in2 a song full of harmonious rhythm. D way she combines English & Igbo so easily is truely mind-blowin

Dis is a highly original song. D way J’Dess sings “Twinkle twinkle little star” towards d end of d song makes u wonda.

Genre & Local appeal:
Dis is inspirational R&B or gospel R&B.

2nd impression:
a) Wat do I luv best about it?
I overlove d chorus. Its so easy 2sing-along 2ova & ova & ova again.
b) Wat do I hate most about it?
D question shud b ‘wat did I like least?’ bcos it’s hard 2find anythin 2hate in dis song. Ok, I didnt like d ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ endin but d way J’Dess sang it was great!

9/10 (or 90%)

My prophecy:
Dis song is a mega-hit alredy. It jst need massive promotion & a video
