Ronke Kuti - His Name is Jah - Stereo Stickman

Ronke Kuti His Name is Jah


Smooth production and heartfelt lyrics deliver the celebratory sentiments and melody of Ronke Kuti’s new Gospel single His Name Is Jah.

Built around a retro pop arrangement of colourful synths and a mellow groove, His Name Is Jah presents mildly effected vocals, as we rise from a single voice to a full choir of singers; united in this looping and increasingly catchy central theme and title.

Gospel minister and revivalist Ronke Kuti puts in a deeply impassioned performance for this release, the storyteller and writer brings a fresh sense of optimism and gratitude to Faith-based Gospel music, and presents a song that would no doubt raise the roof beautifully in the live setting.

The energy evolves consistently throughout, and the call and response moments of the latter half add a level of soulful conviction that’s boldly uplifting.

Simple yet striking in its devotion to the concept, the melody and writing of His Name Is Jah offers a twist of World and Popular Music to this genre, and also introduces a clear sense of personality and identity that will no doubt ring loud throughout Ronke Kuti’s performances and singles.

The arrangement is humble but engaging, the tune a natural earworm, and the production equally modest to allow the clear emotion and celebration of the delivery to shine as brightly as possible.

“Your name is Jah
You are my shield

He that dwelleth
In the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the almighty”
