Adura Elijah – Jhybo (Song Of The Day)

After hearing Jhybo on Adura Elijah for the umpteenth time, I can say with all sense of assuredness that Jhybo along with being a rapper, is a psalmist.

Go through the Psalms written by the Musician-King, David, and you will see Psalms of praise, thanksgiving, deliverance and Messianic Psalms. Adura Elijah is Jhybo’s Psalm of deliverance.

In Adura Elijah, Jhybo calls on Jehovah to save him from enemies near and far, known and unknown, and most dangerous of all, frenemies.

Frenemies are wolves in sheep’s clothing. They hang around as friends, happy to bide their time until it is convenient to show their devious nature.

From the first time I heard Jhybo alongside Cynthia Morgan on “Ejo Le Fe Ro”, I could tell that he is the real deal. Jhybo gave Nigerian Rap a lease of life it really needed at the time. His album, Be naa ni, did not disappoint. Each track was worth the listen.

On a Lagos Monday, Adura Elijah is that song you need to get you in the mindset that God has fought your battle and you can go forth and conquer.

May God hear our prayers, bless our hustles and give us long, peaceful and satisfactory lives to enjoy the fruit of our labors. Amen.

Adura Elijah Lyrics
[Chorus]
Baba God awa omo re de
Lati gbohun ebe wa soke si o
Gege bi oti gbo Adura Elijah
Baba gbo adura mi
Gege bi oti gbo Adura Elijah
Baba gbo adura mi

[Verse 1]
Ok! Baba, won pariwo p’awon logun
Adura nikan ni mo mo mo fin kokun
Mo mo pe alawo wa pelu adahunse
Eru mi nbe lowo e baba bami gbe
Cause I believe in you only
I’m a sinner, I no talk say I too holy
All my enemies you dribble with no mercy
Not to brag, but just to learn lesson
Adabi ti nba ro ti won laida
Won se signs lati try outshine wa
Adabi ti mummy mi ba kese won
Won pofo but Oluwa o gbede won
Well, I’m just alone with my GOD
I tire for this port so I pray make I port
I believe in my lima JEHOVAH na my sword
Eh! JEHOVAH na my sword

[Chorus]
Baba God awa omo re de
Lati gbohun ebe wa soke si o
Gege bi oti gbo Adura Elijah
Baba gbo adura mi
Gege bi oti gbo Adura Elijah
Baba gbo adura mi

[Verse 2]
ok, oni ki n ma sise die ma rere pupo
Pero ma park sodomi bi eni towa ni kuto
Everyday grinding, faaji o kuku niso
Igba mi ma k’orin kale nobody to feature
Igbati ti aya mi bi  abiku adura loje kan bi abiye
Fitila ni Cherubim abela Cele o lafiwe
Eni toru loma so koni gbemimi
Igbati mo jade nu idi moti l’enemy
Mi o le soro nba ni kan ma kiwa ku ewu omo
Pupo wa opo o fe ki mummy mi jeun omo
Oro to ba ti koja ekun nise la ma nbu s’erin
Ti soro ba ti poju odi dandan ka gbe semi
Yo mi! Mo mo pe awon people yi l’agbara
Won ni kon se Jibola walahi oma sabawa
Bofe boko walahi oma darawa
JEHOVA se o ngbo iwo nikan ni mo sawaba

[Chorus]
Baba God awa omo re de
Lati gbohun ebe wa soke si o
Gege bi oti gbo Adura Elijah
Baba gbo adura mi
Gege bi oti gbo Adura Elijah
Baba gbo adura mi

[Outro]
You say make we always dey pray for our enemies
They’re getting stronger oh Lord, see them frenemies
You say make we always dey pray for our enemies
They’re getting stronger oh Lord, see them frenemies.
