Tosin Oyelakin celebrates her new age with a powerful single titled “Shammah.”
Done in a mixture of English, Yoruba and Igbo languages, the song tells about the wonderful and mind boggling works of Jesus Christ in the verses which then culminate in the very catchy and sweet sounding chorus, calling out the amazing attributes of GOD Himself.
Jehovah Shammah means The LORD is (present) there. So much is going on in our world today. But regardless of what is going on in Nigeria, UK, USA and all over the world, there is peace in the assurance that GOD will never ever leave nor forsake His own.
Talking about the single, Tosin says, ‘ I have experienced the power of Yahweh in so many ways. And the lyrics of this song just about summarises my lifetime so far with Him. How He has always been there as my banner, He’s always been there to fight for me and defend me as a Lion defends her cub. What an amazing GOD I serve!’
Tosin prays that this song will reassure everyone going through, that Jehovah Shammah will always be there with them, even when walking through the most terrifying situations, and He will always fight for them.

SHAMMAH – LYRICS
You are the reason I’m alive today Okenmuo (The Great Spirit)
You are the Resurrection and the Life Alagbara giga (the Powerful One)
You are the soon coming King Jesus
Oba, Kabiesi o (King)
You are the mighty Man in battle
Jesus, Shammah is Your Name
Saviour, Nissi is Your name
My LORD, Shammah is Your name
You are the mighty Man in battle, the Lion of Judah
For Your Word stands sure forever (Forever it shall be)
And You honor every word of Yours(Even more than Your name)
Every life on Earth belongs to You(You can give and take away as You will as the Almighty God)
For You do strange things that are so unbelievable
Miraculous are Your ways oh God
For You are higher than we can imagine
That is why Your ways are so unsearchable.
