Veteran Gospel singer Sammie Okposo releases his awaited new single, “I Thirst For You“: a heartfelt supplication born out of zeal and hunger for God.
More than just a song, it is a statement that expresses the writer’s stand as he takes a position of surrender, inviting the Supreme One to conquer him. What better time to express this deep longing of the heart than when you are celebrating the day God breathe his life into you.
As Sammie Okposo celebrates his birthday, 30th of May, 2020, the award-winning Gospel music minister pours out his heart, expressing his burning desire, and hunger for more Jesus.
Serving as his 5th release for the year 2020, “I Thirst For You” is a soul-stirring rendition that infuses Urban Pop/Rock elements into contemporary worship music. The tone of the song does not in anyway compromise its title. You can literally feel the thirst and hunger for God, in both Sammie Okposo’s voice and the background vocals. The mood of the simple, yet spectacular visual also support the thematic preoccupation.
Sammie Okposo who has defiled the global pandemic to raise an altar to God through his releases in the season had earlier said that “there is a need to fill the atmosphere with worship.” In this light, we have witnessed amazing critically acclaimed singles such as “I Have Never Seen God Change,” “Skaataa Dance,” “Nigerian Worship Medley” and the recently released praise single “Nobody Can” which immediately shot up to the top of iTunes Nigeria Chart and remained on the chart for 3 days, upon release.
“I Thirst for You” is written and produced by Sammie Okposo. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Zamar Entertainment by Imma Jamz. The video was shot and directed by Akin Alabi.
