Music: Blessed (Live Cover) by Rukky Otive

“Blessed” is a feel-good song by Wizkid and Damian Marley that talks about taking life easy, relieving yourself of pressure, and leaving God to take control. “Blessed” is one of my favourite songs, and I had a lot of fun performing this live cover. You can watch the video below or on YouTube (scroll down to view the lyrics). Credits go to Victor Paul (on the lead guitar), Victor (on the bass guitar), Nnamdi (on the keyboard), Favour (on the drums), and Victor Yusuf (video recording).

Lyrics

I might be rough around the edges, maybe yes
I keep it nappy and I do what make me happy
And nobody can deny me that I’m blessed
I might be rough around the edges, maybe yes
I keep it nappy and I do what make me happy
And nobody can deny me that I’m blessed

Self preservation, self elevation
These kind of things they deserve celebration
No hesitation, no reservation
Go for the big leagues, no relegation
Let’s celebrate life
Kick back and take five
And give thanks to the source that create life
To see a sun set or see a sun rise
And see my son born with these same eyes
To see my son smile, brighten every grey sky
He’s growing so fast, that’s why everyday I
Give it one hundred, nuh stop at 90
Praise the Almighty, the Father anoint me

Say tonight, man feeling blessed oh
Say tonight, me and my guys we go jam gbedu
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Say tonight, man no go stress oh
Say tonight, me and my guys we go jam gbedu
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh


Truly
Make I tell you say my life is like a movie
And if I tell you all these things I don see truly
See my eyes don see, before my life come be
Say many try to fool me
But I dey pray for my enemies, and truly
And I dey pray for my kids, that’s my blessings
Pray for the friends I lost
I pray you never see no loss, yeah
‘Cause one pressure, fit turn two pressure
Ah, I don see where pressure make man wreck oh
So, make you live your life o jeje, no regret am
When man pressure, na God give rest o
Man no get control
My brother make you know
Life wey I dey live, say I dey live am on the low
Hustle every day, and believe Jah to take control
Never ’bout the money
Man, I’m staying in my zone

Say tonight, man feeling blessed oh
Say tonight, me and my guys we go jam gbedu
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Say tonight, man no go stress oh
Say tonight, me and my guys we go jam gbedu
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh

I might be rough around the edges, maybe yes
I keep it nappy and I do what make me happy
And nobody can deny me that I’m blessed
I might be rough around the edges, maybe yes
I keep it nappy and I do what make me happy
And nobody can deny me that I’m blessed

Say tonight, man feeling blessed oh
Say tonight, me and my guys we go jam gbedu
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Say tonight, man no go stress oh
Say tonight, me and my guys we go jam gbedu
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
