Fresh from the stables of Bethany Tunes comes the highly anticipated official video to the hit song “Tambira Jehovah” by Bethany Bola Thani. And now that it’s here, we can say it was worth all the excitement!
Bethany Bola Thani had this to say about the video:
“”A dog that dances for its master will surely eat what the master eats” – Pst. E.A. Adeboye.
“I was a guest Minister in a Church in the States where the choir raised the song ‘Tambira Jehovah’ and the atmosphere changed with everybody dancing.
Though I had no idea what the lyrics meant, I just whispered to myself – It is my turn to dance!
On a second thought, I took a deep plunge into the Internet in frantic search for Tambira Jehovah.
I was deeply blessed by Mkhululi Bhebhe/Joyous Celebration’s version of the song – Tambira Jehovah.
Tambira Jehovah is a Shona folk song from Zimbabwe meaning “Come and dance for the Lord”. That nailed it. I was greatly inspired to pop up my version and on my return to Nigeria, I consulted with Daniel Adegbenro, a South African trained musicologist whom I was very certain could best interpret the song.
Tambira Jehovah is laced with English, Shona, Swahili and Yoruba languages.
IT IS YOUR TURN TO DANCE!”
“Tambira Jehovah” video was directed by Oluyinka Davids (iFocus Pictures).
