Davina’s first hand in production is her first release since her April 2017 duet “Vanity” with Soul artiste, Preyé. Now the singer releases “Hosea 4v6”, following the her last music video “JUJU” (January 2019), we see Davina Oriakhi embody her musical fluidity in the very enchanting video earlier this month.
On her new record “Hosea 4v6”, the singer is just as enthralling and melodious, carrying a message; on African suppression and freedom.
Inspired by her personal journey into what she refers to as “Hidden African History”; her new release is a direct product of her research and consumption of related information around the subject from the British library, as generally African history hasn’t always been accessible or taught to the artist.
On the song, Davina uses the bible verse referenced in the title; “Hosea 4v6” as an outro-chorus; attributing the African struggle to lack of information/knowledge.
I feel our people don’t do better because they don’t know better, or they choose to block out information; or at least that’s one of the many problems
Davina states reflecting on the Hosea 4v6.
Hosea 4v6 is released alongside a lyric video; The listen is vibrational and inspiring, a sweet sonic plea for consciousness, the video is captivating with Davina .
