Damilola Oluwatoyinbo, a prolific songwriter and passionate worshiper release a brand new music video tagged “Lit.”
“Lit” is a sound of joy and celebration. It affirms the beauty of God’s light and the brilliance of His grace upon the lives of His children.
Damilola who is the dynamic pastor of “KINGS” shares the interesting inspiration of how he started writing this song in a prayer meeting.
“In 2018, I was inspired to teach a sermon series at KINGS, the ministry I’m privileged to lead. On a certain Friday, as we explored that series, I was leading prayers and at some point, I uttered these words, “My life is lit”
I repeated it. I said it several times and I kept meditating on that. I eventually decided to preach a message with that title. The next morning, I started playing around with some melodies in my head and I eventually came up with something I felt was worth sharing. I quickly recorded a verse and a chorus on my phone and sent it to our WhatsApp group because I wanted enough of our people to be familiar with the song by Sunday.
On Sunday, I taught our beautiful congregation and the reception was even much better than I had envisaged. People were singing and jumping in excitement. At that point, I knew God had given me another special song.
Over several months, I kept reflecting, meditating and crafting the sound till I was satisfied with the outcome and I’m thrilled about the power and vibrancy it carries. It’s a song that inspires hope, joy and confidence in God’s light and love.” – He says.
