Hello and welcome to BuzzMusic Daniel Ojo. Your latest song release, titled "My Desire," recently debuted and featured your close friend Christiana Washington. How was the collaboration between the two of you for this single? The Collaboration between myself and Christiana Washington was incredible. Even though we've never met in person, there was a connection most especially to the song and that made the entire process really smooth. She has the heart that pants for God and that really resonated with me. She's such an incredible singer, worshipper, genuine, humble, and very easy to work with.
Were there any moments during the writing stage of "My Desire" that you felt challenged as an artist?
There was no moment of writing the song that I felt challenged. The answer to the next question below gives more clarity to this answer.
Where did you extract the influence for writing "My Desire?" The song was birthed in prayer, and it is really my heart's cry to God daily. This helped the process of writing the song. This is my prayer every day/any day, to want nothing else but more of God. Coming to the knowledge of who He is and not just what he can do. I was pretty much just pouring out my heart in this song! My inspiration always comes from God, his word, my communion, and my fellowship with him.
How would you describe the ultimate emotion you were hoping your listeners would experience after listening to "My Desire?"
I am hoping that my listeners will experience a yearning, or pretty much as the song title, a desire for God. There are so many issues in this life, so many questions, so many distractions, but the answer, the solution is JESUS. And I pray my listeners will be drawn close to God more than ever.
What's next for you, Daniel?
I have another single coming out soon, titled "Greater". I am super excited for this song as well and cannot wait for the world to hear it.
