Kamba Gospel singer Justina Syokau is at it again with a new Kikuyu song. The song ‘Ti Uhoro’ loosely translated as ‘It’s well ‘ was released on 27th February.
Justina said noted that the song is dedicated to those going through hard times, hardship, dry seasons, and pain.
“I dedicate this song to myself and those going through battles, discouragement, difficult season, pain worry, doubt, family crises, lack, and trolls. Though the sorrow may last for a night the joy of the lord comes in the morning. I invite you to surrender with me all battles to the lord,” she said.
The song begins with consolation to those with pain in their heart because of what is happening in their lives. She encourages them that they should know God sees everything and that it’s well with them.
“The pain in your heart it’s only God who can understand, he fights your battles, those who are waiting for your downfall, you won’t succumb because you are God’s seed,” the song starts (translated).
“It is well when they back bite you, it is well when they insult you the favor of the lord is on you, you are blessed and cannot be cursed,” the song goes on.
The song has been welcomed by many of her fans more so those from the mountain who were wowed by her command of the Kikuyu language.
