“Yoruba is a beautiful language, translating to English can be tricky as one has to unravel the true meaning behind the poetry often going on.
I’m so grateful for the help of Mr Oreofe Williams for the translation. For this song ‘War’. I decided on my friend Dr Odagas advice to call on Mrs. Morin Desalu. Her dad was Professor Emeritus in Yoruba Language and I knew she could help us decode additional layers of meaning .
Aunty Morin helped clarify the war terminologies within the song.. In her spontaneous worship, Tope Alabi was clearly describing God and the angel armies in perfect FORMATION aligned on our behalf.
She described how an army goes into battle the vanguard, Calvary, the rearguard God literally surrounds us in our time of testing and trouble.
He fights for us so we don’t have to, we are never alone. Every time we get to vote and choose the leadership of our country , it’s a clear battle for our future a big one.
It’s good to know that our Nation never fights alone. I believe we have God; not only on our side but surrounding us. Many times when we pray and ask God to go with us, we sometimes forget the weight of that very word, GOD…
The Immeasurable, all Powerful, Mighty Warrior that reassures us that with Him, in every battle. WE WIN. By faith we do all that we know to do and then hand over to Him.
As divided as we may seem along the lines of politics, religion and tribe, I believe that deep down, we should have one United desire, that our Nation wins.
For when She wins, above everything and everyone else, only then can we truly have peaceful and victorious lives. God help us as we decide tomorrow.”
