Writing ‘Deep’ was a journey of thoughts, questions and ecstatic discovery of God’s love.

About two years ago, I was in deep thoughts and had many questions for my Father. Asking these questions loudly or in company of believers could be construed as being ungrateful or doubtful. But they were questions about my call and I secretly demanded answers.

Round about this time, I reluctantly attended our mid-week bible study session on a Wednesday and my pastor’s wife (Pastor Gloria) was teaching on Love.

In this session, she taught on Ephesians 3:17-19 especially on vs 18 where she began to explain what the dimensions of God’s love looked like. My love language is love in its purest form so I was super attentive and captivated at the same time. It was as though it was my first time hearing about love, true and pure.

This captivated my heart and suddenly I felt a flood of light, love and ecstasy towards God. I really couldn’t explain it.

As I returned home that night, I decided to read and research into how far or deep God’s love was.

This is when I started writing ‘Deep’.

The chorus is in my local dialect (Yoruba). Its meaning is rooted in a promise deep in the heart of a gift God gave me when my daughter was born. A promise to love come what may…

This song is a true love story between me and a God called Love. It is my worship that transcends situations, emotion and desires. Truth is I may never comprehend the dimensions of His love but one thing is for sure, He loves me.

I hope this song blesses you.

Artist Bio:

Yemi Alafifuni is a talented artist with a passion for gospel, pop and R&B. Hailing from Nigeria, but based in the UK, this charismatic singer and songwriter managed to combine stunning melodies with infectious grooves and great beats, in order to create a catchy, yet direct and edgy sound.

Yemi's early days where marred with identity issues and a chronic lack of self -- esteem. Yemi suffered from a broken home and his quest for a sense of belonging took him on a journey with God.

Trusting God through the diverse & mostly challenging situations was difficult but by God's Grace, Yemi found strength to progressively grow in God and he is still growing. Yemi's beginning is very low and humble but this has helped build active faith, a term Yemi describes as the force of God behind any exploit.

Yemi's baptism into Gospel Music

At the beginning of Yemi's walk with the Lord, he began to gravitate towards christian music. At the time, Maranatha! Music was the acceptable western music records and so Yemi began to listen to all the records he could find especially Kids Praise. Soon after, Yemi began to teach his fellowship music whilst serving as an usher.

Yemi's baptism into music came at a time of desperate need. His home was behind a boarding school and every other night a set of girls will gather to sing worship songs. Though they were across the swamp (the landscape that separated the school from Yemi's home), their music travelled far and ultimately into Yemi's usually room.

The voices were so beautiful and heavenly that it kept Yemi up all night. Shortly, Yemi began to practice to sing just like the ladies across the pond and looked forward to their session.

Yemi said; 'This for me was my divine induction into music. I have never met any of these ladies and I don't think they know how much impact & influence they had on me. It was as if God sent angels to train me every midnight (which is the time the ladies meet). I am grateful to these ladies wherever they may be.'

For many years, he has led and been an active member of the church choir. He had won several local gospel singing soloist competition during his early years but his passion isn't about awards or position. His first recording album was 'Uncensored Worship' which was released on the 4th of April 2015.

Yemi Alafifuni is one of the worship leaders at COHP, UK -- a church where the lifestyle of Jesus is natural and worship is undiluted. He enjoys his time in worship, appreciating every opportunity by giving his absolute best to God. Our God deserves 100%, all the time -- no exceptions -- Yemi believes.

Today, God deserves it all and Yemi has a desire to see the nations worship God in Spirit and in Truth where the love of Jesus is shed abroad in our hearts and our lives mirror heaven.

He loves Jesus and believes every heart should too. His music will bring you closer to the throne room of the Father and your heart will connect in worship.

You Stayed - Natalie Grace

Title: You Stayed Artist: Natalie Grace Genre: CCM Release date: March 15, 2024 Type of release: Single Source: Artist Story: There would be no resurrection if Jesus hadn’t finished the work on the cross. He could have called a legion of angels to rescue him but he was committed to the sacrifice that would bring us salvation. This song is an anthem celebrating His love and mercy! This song was actually inspired by my daughter. When she was real young, I read the story about Jesus dying on the cross from one of her storybook Bibles, It talked about how he could have rescued himself— he didn’t have to endure the suffering but he chose to stay bc he loved us and knew it was the only way for us to be saved, Her sweet little voice just kept asking me, “He stayed???” I thought it was so powerful since we spend a lot of time singing about how he didn’t stay in the grave. Yet there could be no resurrection without him staying and finishing the work on the cross. So it’s a reflection on hi
