As we get set to celebrate this festive season, Nigerian singer Timi Dakolo and British songstress Emeli Sande have us wishing Christmas could come sooner in a song that is a soulful reminder of what we should really be joyful about.
It’s the season of love and sharing; joy and togetherness is the theme and Timi knows just how to touch that inner part of the subconscious. His unique artistry is on full display in a song that you’d think has been around for ages as it brings the feeling of ancient wisdom and contemporary relevance.
Just hearing the first lines of the song and the listener is lost in the yuletide feeling with a swirl of emotions just getting the better of you. As we mark the period when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, we ought to remember that love can melt the stoniest hearts and joy can elevate the helpless ones. In such moments, we are all taken to a place that words cannot express.
Timi Dakolo is a singer whose talent is unbridled and it shows whenever he drops a song. Collaborating with Emelie Sande is a perfect choice as the magic that is created here goes beyond just music. It is a message that has been preached from the dawn of time, a gospel that has reverberated through the ages; one that can never be silenced. It is simply this: LOVE IS THE MOST POWERFUL GIFT.
Every scene in the video is on point and the vocal delivery is just flawless. What further makes it unique is the fact that both even though both singers are separated by distance, they are bound by their shared emotions.
Merry Christmas is a beautiful song that gets us in the yuletide mood and soothes our very nerves. It tells us that no matter what comes, seeing this festive season means that together we have conquered. Love and togetherness will surely take us to the farthest reaches of our imaginations!
