Fast rising Enugu born and bred musician, Okwor Oluchuwku Morrison, aka ‘Morris’ is about to change the face of music in Nigeria with his unique style of music which has since been the talk of the town in the east where he is currently based.
After the successful release of his previous single titled ‘Africa Baby’ which portrays the beauty of African women, he is set to release a new self titled single ‘Oluchukwu’. According to Morris, the song tells the story of a little boy destined for greatness inspite of the hurdles he must grapple with on his way to success.
“This music, as it stands for in Igbo means ‘Work of God’. It tells the tale of a boy who is destined for greatness despite challenges and obstacles”, he said.
Speaking further, Morris who is currently signed to Jehty Incorporated Record Label explained why he named the song after himself.
He said; “Naming the song ‘Oluchuwku’, which is my real name, wasn’t something that took much thinking because as the name implies, ‘Work of God’, already passes the message. My life and journey so far has been all because of God and I couldn’t help but sing to that.”
Morris who strongly believes he is an act to look out for in a competitive music industry like Nigeria’s said ‘Oluchukwu’ was inspired by his challenging journeys of life.
“Oluchukwu was inspired by my life’s journey so far from the time I lost a dear one to the struggles in secondary school. Also, now that I’m in the higher institution, certain encounters I have had with friends and family inspired it too. Some were good times, some were bad times but in all things I give God the glory, he said.
