UK-based Nigerian Gospel artist, producer and musical director Tj Dairo is back with his brand new single "Alive Forever." Tj Dairo has turned a popular Nigerian worship song 'He's Alive' into an alternative pop-rock and modern contemporary offering in 'Alive Forever' that testifies of the resurrection of Christ and the significance of Jesus' victory over death for us.
"Alive Forever," says Dairo, has a nostaglic element in it. He explains: "The nostalgia of the past when we would sit on plastic chairs in the church clapping and praising God insome cases with only the congas and tambourines inspired me to write additional lyrics, melody and musical instrumentation to bring a new, vibrant and deeper interpretation of the song."
This song is deeply personal to Dairo, he describes the lyrics as words that spell out the bedrovk of his faith. "The song is energetic and full of life but yet strong on its core message which is the bedrock of my faith.The message is that despite the challenges we may face today or in the future, we have hope for tomorrow, because He still lives".
