Gospel music minister Joke Akande releases her prophetic 3rd single for the year 2022 titled “My Child (Wa Dogun).“
The Soulful music is a prophetic prayer channeled through rhythm to children all over the world both born and unborn. It is quite apt for the season, seeing that Nigerian Children’s Day (May 27th) is in view.
She speaks expressly about the inspiration behind the song:
“When I became a first-time mum, I was inspired to journal my experience – the happy moments and all my emotions as a mother,” Joke Akande said.
“My love for children and good education later inspired me to start a school. During this period, God gave me a word, which is found in Isaiah 60:22. Ever since I have run with this word; in fact, it has morphed to be a prophecy over every child that is enrolled in the school.
“Some years later, God blessed my family with another baby. Having had 10 good years to think of what I could have done differently the first and second time, I obeyed the Lord’s instruction to journal and resolved to journal dutifully this time.
“Exactly a year ago, I had just finished having a great time in prayer when this chorus bubbled within me and I began to sing: ‘Waa dogun, waa dogbon…’ and of course, it ended with the word I had been prophesying over all the children in my care: ‘a little one shall become a thousand.’
“Then, my journal inspired the verses for the song.
“Next was answering the question: ‘So, what would you say to your older children?’
“‘These people that I have been praying for? Iyen easy..’ And the song “My Child” came together. Then God said to me, “Go ahead and be a blessing with this song.”
“Undoubtedly, “My child” is that song you will love. Asides the fact that it is great music, the song takes you through a mother’s journey & gives you a parent’s declaration.
“I see this song as a means to readily prophesy the word over our precious children born and yet to be born.
“For where the word of a king is, there is power….” Ecclesiastes 8:4a.”
