    #EndSars Protest: Why Tiwa Savage’s Olorun Mi is our song of the moment

    When Nigerian Diva and the face of Afro R’n’B, Tiwa Savage released Olorun Mi in 2013, she did it in honor of Dana Plane crash victims, Goldie and Justice Esiri. Seven years later, the song still provides comfort.

    #EndSars Protest: Why Tiwa Savage’s Olorun Mi is our song of the moment

    In the month of October, as Nigeria marked its 60th Independence anniversary, Nigerians made a decision to protest against Police Brutalitythat had plagued the country for a while.

    The irony of the whole thing was the Police decided to retaliate with more brutality. As if things couldn’t get worse, unarmed protesters were shot at by the Miltary at the Lekki Toll Gate on 20th October 2020.

    The next day being 21th, more deaths were recorded across Lagos as things turned bloody.



    While the turn of events is depressing, one still needs to get encouraged that the fight isn’t over. Which brings us to Tiwa Savage‘s 2013 song, “Olorun Mi“.

    The song begins with “For all the loved ones we’ve lost, May their souls continue to rest in perfect peace”.

    The song is a tale of coming to terms with the death of loved ones and hoping that you could see them the next day.

    In the chorus, she sings for God to answer her prayer for strength. Tiwa’s voice also helps in selling the power of the lyrics.

    “Olorun Mi” is a song from her debut album, “Once Upon A Time“.
