ARISE NIGERIA, SINGLE (2015)
Arise Nigeria is a lovely charge from God to the country. This mid tempo song written and performed by Uduak was produced by Atta LeNell. Unlike the first rendition which was a ballad, this is a simple, contagiously cheery song with a strong pop and jazzy touch. The simple, folksy, friendliness of the song elevates your mood and makes you want to sing along as well as dance.
Uduak’s soulful vibe creates a profound ease – a deviation from the average Nigerian nationalistic song. Savour the unbelievable dramatic change in the melody and mood towards the end of the song. It not only makes you want to dance the salsa, but injects in you a commitment to nation building. And oh, the breathy, jazzy adlibs that serenades you into the future. “Common let’s move on, move on no need to give up……..we need to myove on, we need to reach for the top……” Arise Nigeria video also available.
