This song was one of the many praise and worship compositions of Wale Adenuga. The writer heads Fountain of Praise, a worship ministry that has a vision of declaring God’s praise to the ends of the earth. The song has been performed by many choir groups and gospel artists during worship services and concerts several times. It is a free slow highlife contemporary praise song that became popular in the early 2000 after being sung at one of the Fountain of Praise concerts but was officially released on June 7, 2015. It fits into celebrations, thanksgiving, and praise services in the church, like weddings, special thanksgiving and praise service and so on.
