Fresh on the heels of her well-received single “Eyin Ni”, Joke Akande releases “My Child (Wa Dogun),” marking her third effort for the year 2022. The Afro-soul midtempo is a prophetic prayer channeled through rhythm to children all over the world both born and unborn. It is quite apt for the season, seeing that Nigerian Children’s Day (May 27th) is in view.

Detailing the new single inspiration, Joke Akande who is a blessed mother and wife said the journey that birthed the song started about 10 years ago but it was last year that it climaxed into its full interpretation.

“When I became a first-time mum, I was inspired to journal my experience – the happy moments and all my emotions as a mother,” the singer peened

Continues.. “My love for children and good education later inspired me to start a school. During this period, God gave me a word, which is found in Isaiah 60:22. Ever since, I have run with this word; in fact, it has morphed to be a prophecy over every child that is enrolled in the school.

“Some years later, God blessed my family with another baby. Having had 10 good years to think of what I could have done differently the first and second time, I obeyed the Lord’s instruction to journal and resolved to journal dutifully this time.

“Exactly a year ago, I had just finished having a great time in prayer when this chorus bubbled within me and I began to sing: ‘Waa dogun, waa dogbon…’ and of course, it ended with the word I had been prophesying over all the children in my care: ‘a little one shall become a thousand.’
