The Wellu Wellu master, over time became the go-to for uplifting praise and worship songs and became an influence to many music ministers.
It’s a different stories these days.
With the bursting forth of fresh voices like Uche Double, PITA, Freke Umoh, Samsong, etc, Okpose now looks to be sadly playing catch up.
On Friday, he released the video for his song, Overcomer.
What was that about? To some folks, it might have been yet another body of work, just for the sake of staying in the mainstream and maintaining relevance.
To me, it looked as if Okposo ran into friends in London and they decided to shoot a low-budget clip.
Not only was the song absolutely uninspiring, some of the verses and rap lines were forgettable.
We have not given up on him though. But he has to do much better in his next offering.
