Lipo Tumaini are Swahili words that mean there is hope and as you can tell, this main aim of this jam is to encourage believers not to give up when they encounter challenges.
Put simply, one should not throw in the towel and end his/ her life because they are frustrated or things aren’t going the way they expected.
Instead, we should seek God and tell him our troubles since he’ll never desert us in our time of need and he can help us overcome them.
There are many reasons why I love this jam. Firstly, the powerful message that it carries really resonates with me and I must tell you that after listening to it, the assurance made me feel less burdened.
Secondly, Lipo Tumaini is so infectious. It sounds so pleasant to the ears. I have had it on replay since it was released out and to be honest, I’ve lost count of the number of times I have listened to it.
Thirdly, the voices of the artists on this jam are so melodious and to add to that it has some Coastal vibe to it and that is one of the things that makes it exceptional.
Jemimah and Princess Faridah’s beautiful voices blend perfectly with that Reuben Kigame and the choir spice up the songs with their melodious background vocals. It’s so heavenly ladies and gentlemen.
I totally love the instrumentation on Lipo Tumaini, especially because it is inspired by Taarab, remember that this is a gospel song. Anyway, all I am saying is that it sounds so pleasant.
The video concept is also on point albeit. Just like the audio, it was inspired by the Coastal lives and that is evidenced by their attires and locations.
Watch Lipo Tumaini below and tell us what you think.
Comme ci, comme ça
