I’m so glad that mom got to hear the songs I wrote for her, here is a little story about those songs.
Worth The Wait:
I wrote this song on a flight to a concert in St Luis, Senegal. It was the day mom had to go into surgery, and i felt all kind of ways as you can imagine, and I happened to be on a worldwide tour, this was tough, I had to entertain and move audiences, and make make people happy even though i wasn’t happy, the stage was my therapy and their positive energy was some sort of comfort.
I was struggling on how to write the bridge of the song, that night after the show, I went and sat down by the beach, by myself, (This is exactly how people get themselves eaten by creatures in the movies) …the words and melody came to me, I could hear it in my head but i needed the chords to construct it right, so i run through the thick sand, i banged on Nick Myers door, Nicki played keys and sung Background vocals in my band, he was also the producer for the Misubbaawa album, I woke him up as usual, and begged for his musical help, he was the first one to hear the song. and the song was ready to be recorded.
