DOWNLOAD MP3: John Olumayowa - Freedom

Five singles and one studio video in and he has another one on here. 2020 has been a very productive year for Nigerian Gospel Singer-songwriter John Olumayowa. The prolific recording artiste returns again with a song for the moment; Freedom.

On October 20, 2020, Nigeria witnessed yet another tragedy that shook everyone in it to the bones especially the youths and while a lot has been said, is still being said and will continue to be said concerning the infamous incident that is now been referred to as the Lekki Massacre, John Olumayowa decides to pour out his emotions in this emotional song.

“My eyes are full of tears as heroes are falling/ blood is gushing/ our hearts are bleeding”

Lines like this make the song heavy with emotions, pain and hope. Concerning the song, John Olumayowa says

“…the tragedy of 20.10.2020 will forever be on our minds. I could feel the pain of the Nigerian youths; those who lost their lives and parents who lost their children. Many lost their jobs and properties were vandalized in the madness that engulfed the country. Right now we know that the only voice that matters is the voice of God and we call upon Him to grant our dear country Freedom. We pray to God to turn around the fortunes of this country.”

John Olumayowa is currently working on the visuals of the song and a future release has been slated. Freedom is produced and mixed by dharpsykord.




My eyes are full of tears

As heroes are falling

And blood is gushing

Our hearts are bleeding

Our heads are bow down

We are confused

Let your salvation come

Our hope is raised to you

We ‘re already praying in our hearts



Freedom 8x


The tears and the pains

The killings and uproar

Many are are homeless

Many are childless

Many are suffering

Many are jobless

We lift our voice of petition

For our motherland

Lord send your salvation right now



Freedom 8x


Arise, O Compatriots,

Nigeria’s call obey

To serve our Fatherland

With love and strength and faith.

The labour of our heroes past

Shall never be in vain,

To serve with heart and might

One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.



Freedom 6x

Calling Freedom 2x
