Multi-talented Nigerian singer and photographer, TY Bello comes through with a new emotionally conscious track titled “Cold” which she recorded shortly after the tanker accident in Lagos that left scores dead and left many cars burnt beyond repair.
She left a long note on her YouTube page and it reads in part:
I know exactly where I was when the petrol tanker exploded in Lagos last week, killing many. I was already in front of my microphone about to start a spontaneous worship session… when @biggorgy showed me the footage .. I immediately took stock of my entire family, to be sure everyone was home safe. I remember the relief I felt and guilt that came right after..I wasn’t entitled to the ‘relief’ I felt … and then I remembered hundreds of people killed in Plateau state just days before ..and on and on I played similar tragedies … I was suddenly aware of my disconnect .. I wasn’t entitled to that feeling of relief .. I felt .. numb .. hard .. cold
Watch “COLD” below and enjoy.
