Gospel music is about to take an interesting turn with new introduction, Jodie.
 Born Joy Odiete Eseoghene to an Esan mom and an Urhobo father, who is a Pastor as well, Jodie grew up in Lagos - in a very religious environment and as a child sang in a choir. In high school, she led the school choir and at every point in her life, has been a member of a choir or singing group.
After High school, Jodie went on to study Mass communication at the University of Lagos, graduating in 2006, and the following year a new chapter opened in her life as she auditioned for the Idols West Africa talent show. Though not emerging Winner, petit Jodie was a favourite as she thrilled viewers and panellists with her vocal richness.
The Church may have been her take-off point, but being in a competition honed her skills and increased her musical repertoire as she delved into other forms of music apart from gospel.
After Idols, Jodie completed her national orientation program and has since been growing, learning and defining herself. That growth and definition has birthed the single Kuchi kuchi, the soothing rhythmic track which since its release late last year is enjoying massive rotation on radio. Jodie has worked with talented acts like Timi Dakolo and Ace Producers Cobhams and TY Mix, and has also performed at various events including the House on the Rock Carol Service, 2010, Chosen Treasure, This Present House (The Dome, Lekki), and La Vita Nuova 2010

With her inspiration borne mostly out of personal experiences and the bible, Jodie comes out with a message of love, peace, and hope, all universal messages but with a personal spin that we can all relate to.

Can Kel Make a Comeback?

After a not too impressive debut album that had many of her fans losing faith in her skills, issues with her record label that left standing all alone amongst other weighing problems, Kelechi Ohia popularly known as Kel is back with a new single ‘Action’. The song has a pop feel that will definitely get clubs vibrating but if this single will bring back that feel that got her the initial recognition, we are yet to know.

Video Pick of the week

Overdose – “Drinks in a Glass”
Shot in a lounge, the video shows OD giving an ode to the bottle. Portrayed in posh lifestyle, the costumes and accessories sufficiently match the lyrics and theme. With cameos from Etcetera, Terry Tha Rapman, Nomoreloss, Mo’chedda, Tosyn Bucknor and others, Clarence Peters displays professionalism once again.
