Kemi Kayode is a worship singer, songwriter and minister who spreads the word with gospel, soul, jazz vibes and afro rhythms. She made her professional solo recording debut in 2014 (performing as ‘Kemie’) with the album New Dimensions, after serving as a chorister for two decades. The soulful songstress followed in 2020 with the EP Reborn.
Born and raised in southwestern Nigeria, Kemi Kayode grew up in a musical household. She was inspired by country, pop, jazz and gospel music from across the globe. A devout Christian, she devoted her life to expressing God’s love through music. The singer recently dropped an advance single from her forthcoming Divine Album.
“Make Room” is the brand new single from Kemi Kayode, released worldwide via all major streaming services on February 28, 2023. Deep sawtooth bass tones and ambient synths open the track. Soon the beat drops on a downtempo trap groove.
The singer steps to the mic with a passionate plea. Lush multipart vocal harmonies paint the edges of the mix as the ensemble expands to include piano, horns and live drums. As the song progresses, the track builds from a subdued R&B slow jam to an emotional jazz-infused worship, with Kemi’s powerful soul at center stage.
