The Lion Of Zion compilation set "Africa Anointed" contains some 18 tunes, all of them glorifying the Father from the mother-land. It's a unique praise and worship album offering a synchronic slice of African artists across the continent. With this unique collaboration, Lion of Zion Entertainment blazes another trail, delivering a brimming sack-full of quality songs, ranging from South African afro-pop, to Ugandan soukous, to Ghanaian reggae, to World-fusion ragga and Nigerian ju ju. As a kind of tribute to the music and cultures of mother-land, Lion of Zion Entertainment searched far and wide to find Christian musicians in Africa that glorify God with their own unique sound.|
The album presents a well balanced melange of indigenous African music and cultures replete with lyrics that will inspire any soul and lead any congregation into worship. The indigenous music will perk your ears with a maze of soaring soukous guitar licks, peeling from the speakers. In addition to the sparkling guitar interplay, there is an abundance of authentic hand percussion and powerful group vocals (in English and various African tongues). The album is dedicated to Kulo Oti who unecpectedly passed away shortly after recording his songs for this album. If you're looking for strictly reggae music you will be disappointed, the only reggae songs are Kujo Oti's Jesus, You're My King and Ben Okafor's Africa Will Be, but if you are willing to explore the rich musical variety of the home-land. let 'Africa Anointed' be your guide and you will be amazed to max...trust us!
