Korede Bello, the rave of the moment in the music industry, has said that his new song entitled 'Somebody Great', is a prophesy to inspire people to greatness.

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Friday, he said he wrote the song to make people visualise success in their minds and then work hard to achieve it.

The new song is a strong follow-up of his hit single 'Godwin', which also received massive airplay.


He said:

"It’s about the people, how we were born into this world and we don’t know how the journey will go and how one love will take us from nobody to somebody.

How I one day hoped that my voice would unite people and stop bombing and fighting and tribulations.

That my voice would command authority; it’s not just me, it’s about alleviating people from oppression and mental poverty.

You can be somebody great from nobody to somebody, you can be anything you want to be: have love for God, love for people, one love.


But also one of the reasons why I wrote that song is for people to see themselves as great.

Because before you can be somebody great, you need to first see it in your mind and you need to prophesy it to yourself, you need to say it to yourself.

And I guess, those are one of the privileges of being a musician because you can put things out there in a melodic form that can change people’s lives forever.

The song is more like a prophesy for everybody that listens to it to be able to command authority; command respect and most of all, have mental wealth.’’

Korede added that the song was about his personal struggles, and how he triumphed to become a star from nothing.


Korede Bello is signed to Don Jazzy's Mavin Records alongside Reekado Banks, Tiwa Savage, Dr Sid, and 'Dija.
