Testimony’s high Octave Gospel Vibe ‘Igara’ is Contagious.

‘..This gospel song is not only trendy; it came along with a contagious dance fad. The first time I came across this material I was blown away and I said to myself, “That’s
how you do gospel on mainstream. This is gospel trap music at its best..’ – @sesanadeniji

It wasn’t long ago when I put out a story on the disappearance of gospel
music on mainstream. Apart from the fact that some OAPs could be faulted
for not supporting this genre, the ball stops on the court of gospel
musicians who fail to produce sounds that could compete with the tempo of
music often required to play on primetime. Well, the high octave gospel
vibe from Testimony titled ‘Igara’ aptly fits the bill. This gospel song is
not only trendy; it came along with a contagious dance fad. The first time
I came across this material I was blown away and I said to myself, “That’s
how you do gospel on mainstream. This is gospel trap music at its best.”
