There is enough room on this vast planet for every one of us to lead our own separate lives. Are you curious as to why?
Now, Kate Odulukwe has released a brand new song titled “Live and Let Me Live,” which features a sophisticated fusion of Pop and Afrobeat music.
It’s great to see musicians like Kate, who is developing a fresh and original sound that attracts a broad variety of listeners, trying out different sounds and styles and pushing the boundaries of established musical genres.
Kate can experiment with musical themes and concepts that would have been difficult to express in a single musical style.
It’s a recognition that there’s enough room in the world for everyone, and that with such a short amount of time here, we may as well make the most of it by basking in the pleasures it has to give rather than wasting it worrying about the hardships others face.
Live and let me live” is what “Biri ka mbiri” in Igbo means, and it’s a statement that’s sung over and over again in the song. You can rest assured that it is, by any measure, a happy tune.
Kate’s improved sense of authenticity and personal expression can be attributed to the fact that she now creates in a setting that is both familiar and comfortable to her.
This has helped the Nigerian-American singer, composer, and actor connect with her feelings and draw from her subconscious, where she finds a wealth of creative ideas.
Yemi Alade, Flavour, and Tiwa Savage are also major influences on Kate, as with more recent artists like Tems, CKay, and Nnonso Amadi.
