Joshkeyz & Aucstave Releases Debut Single ‘I Wish I Could’ | @RealJoshkeyz

Joshkeyz & Aucstave - I Wish I Could

Urban contemporary gospel group, Joshkeyz & Aucstave officially hits the music scene with their highly anticipated debut single ‘I Wish I Could‘.

Joshua Adebowale, best known as Joshkeyz, is a Nigerian gospel musician, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, vocal arranger/producer and music director. He is the leader of the band ‘Aucstave‘ with a vision to empower other people and take over for Jesus.

Song story as shared by Josh; “The song ‘I wish I could’ was born out of a season in my life when I was reminiscing about how far God had brought me (I wasn’t tush, man), what he had done through me and I came to the realization of the fact that it’s not the type of kindness that can actually be repaid. Well, maybe by living to worship Him.

You know how someone amazes you to the point that you’re totally lost for words. (I mean) you literally can’t express your gratitude and you go like no matter what happens, the person has your love forever. That was the kind of love that I actually felt when the lyrics dropped in my heart and all I had for about two years was just the chorus.

The other parts came as I reflected more and I just hope that the song will take people to that place of reminiscing and help them worship God like never before


About Joshkeyz

The Ilesha-born, multi-talented Joshkeyz is the last born of three siblings (a brother & sister) to the family of Pastor & Mrs M.A. Adebowale. Due to his mother being a choir director and having to take him to every rehearsal, he started playing drums and other local drums like Akuba, Conga, Bembe at a very early age. He later moved to learning Keyboard at the age of 12, based on the need to fill the space in Church. While doing that, his love for Music started growing and he learnt other instruments like Guitar, Saxophone mostly by himself.

He didn’t struggle to direct music, by the reason that his mother was already a director, all he did was to watch and improve on some aspects as music evolved.

After several years of arranging, directing, teaching music and writing songs, Mr Lanre Oyegade went to speak in his Church sometime late 2013 and he got a confirmation to start his band “AUCSTAVE” with a couple of friends on campus. In case you’re wondering, Aucstave doesn’t have a dictionary meaning, it is just a combination of two musical terms (Octave & Stave).

  1. Thanks,may almighty God bless you.

  2. I love the song the arrangement is wow but what about the lyrics kindly post the lyrics of the song thanks

  3. Well done my brother. Everything about this song is all to the point. I love the writeup about Josh key and the group. Keep on growing in spirit.

  4. this song is awesome and very tight as per instrumentals and voice.

    this is a great work by joshkeys and auctave. very tight song.

    but I have to say that the song lacks professionalism in production as per diction and title emphasis. i wish i could what? why? etc. and a clear chorus anybody could sing at home. the writer and the song composer and the arranger should try to do something to that.

    since this is the first released track.
    there should be adjustments.

    thank you.

  5. hmmmn….applauds..words really fail me to say inspiring this is…God bless austave…

  6. The format of joshkey song. No app to play it on my phone. Maybe you change the format. Keep supporting Gospel music
