The ability to transform everyday experiences and emotions into song and dance is the key ingredient which a true artiste uses to win the hearts and minds of listeners the world over. This ability to express you and I’s joys, fears, triumphs and failures in beautiful prose and harmonious melody is embedded in this multi talented singer and instrumentalist: Jeremiah Gyang.
A native of Jos, Plateau State, Jeremiah became conversant with the piano and guitar before reaching the age of ten. Like most music greats, Jeremiah’s journey began in the house of God where he led the choir as music director.
Often credited as being responsible for bringing contemporary Hausa music to the mainstream with hits like 2004’s rare gem: ‘Na Ba Ka’ (I give you) which featured Six Foot Plus and skyrocketed him to national consciousness, then 2006’s ‘Kauna Allah’ (God’s Love) which features Rapper, M.I on the initial version and 2009’s ‘In Love With You’ which, though sung in English, is laced by Hausa influenced instrumentals.
Jeremiah’s music has been described as a fine blend of soulful African rhythms, blues, rock and gospel. His ability to pen songs like ‘African Child’ where he describes the effects of the horrors of war on the African child, sung perfectly with intense lyrics to the soulful sounds produced by the gentle plucking of his guitar’s strings marks Jeremiah as a songwriter of extraordinary talent.
A spectacular live performer, Jeremiah had regular live performances at the prestigious Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Abuja for a few years where he was a constant delight to visiting foreigners and Nigerians alike. Jeremiah has also performed at numerous concerts locally and internationally.
After a brief absence from the mainstream music scene.
