Nowhere In the World is an Afro-Fusion, slow 90’s style Hip-Hop sound that will get listeners’ heads bopping and hearts warmed as they are captured in the reality of the love and presence of God communicated through the song.
The song has some native Nigerian language (Igbo) fused into the rap which gives it a very assorted feel. The chants in the song are also soul-stirring and uplifting.
The song was written by Ibukun Elebute (IBKinsprz), Chukwunonso Onwuli (Nolly) and produced, mixed and mastered by Levite Osadebey (Osadebey).
The opening lines of Nowhere In the World are crafted like a personal letter to God. Like a close friend it begins with a ‘Dear God’ and is followed by an outpouring of thoughts that weigh on the heart.
The artists express something we are all familiar with. We experience the craziness of the world and this can not only overwhelm us but distract us from pausing for a moment in the beautiful presence of the Lord.
Though the world often parades itself as the reward, it is important for us to remember that everything that shines is not gold. This is very true for the things of the world. Though they may appear promising, they do not compare to the treasure that we find in God Himself.
When we come to see Jesus as the highest reward, we too like IBKinsprz and Nolly can sing that there is nowhere in the world that we would rather be.
“One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.” – Psalm 27:4
