In Moz’s Words;
“One day, in a place of waiting on the Lord and worshipping, God drew my attention to this folk song from the Igbo people “Obi Kererenke Obi”. After singing the song for a while I decided to research the true meaning of the song.
This is what I found:
The word Obi is used by Igbo people as a title of respect and homage to the king. Obi is normally the centre building for receiving visitors in an Igbo leader’s or man’s homestead; and when used as a title of respect for the king, Obi implies: “the one who sits in the throne house or heart of the Kingdom.”
I marvelled at God’s sense of humour as this song was a chant people usually raise to keep physical activities
such as jogging and marching lively. No attention was paid to the meaning of the song.
Immediately I ran into the studio and recorded the song the way I was singing it while worshipping.”
