Following the successful release of his 2018 single, I Need You which had a lot of positive review and acceptance globally, Nigerian rapper, singer and music producer Nkasiobi Chukwu popularly known as Eclipse Nkasi returns to continue the story which was set in motion by the previous single in Pro Bono
This unique hip-hop tune expresses a very deep, soulful and heartfelt gratitude to God through the good and bad times.
“Do you believe in miracles?
Well, I do.
I also believe that the greatest miracles always seem to take the longest time.
There is a comfort that will come from endurance but it can only be attained in time.
Time will give you everything you want and answer every question you have. Be patient and trust the process and never forget that in spite of your fears and Imperfections, Love & Gratitude are what you need to get to where you’re going.
The best things in life are free; the blessings of God are “Pro Bono”
The song was written and produced by Eclipse himself with great backup vocals from Oluchi Odii. It was mixed and mastered by Cheqwas.
The first verse is sung in harmonious perfection and the lyrics could easily mirror the mindset of anyone struggling to find their own meaning to life, whilst taking comfort in the realization of the presence of the umbrella-like shade of God’s love.
The hook is brilliant. The simplicity is classic Eclipse Nkasi, as he gives you something you can vibe to and still find meaning in your jollification.
The next verse has him rapping and he does it effortlessly. He quips at the fact that he is being asked if he were now “born again”, based on the message in his song. I believe this also ties in with his previous single releases in 2018, one of which was an introspective and gospel-esque track titled I Need You.
