Song Of The Week: Johnny Drille – Papa

Still in the spirit of the recently celebrated Father’s Day, Johnny Drille‘s “Papa” is our song of the week.

The song is an ode to fathers, particularly referencing his own father’s wisdom, prayers, and his admonition as he leaves his hometown for greener pastures. He advises his son of the importance of prayer and faith when he loses his way.

The lyrics are something everyone can relate to, especially those who have left home, leaving parents behind at some point in their lives.

Johnny’s father is a clergyman and school principal in Benin, Edo State.

Johny Drille is a Folk and Alternative singer signed to Mavin Records. He was one of the contestants of the 2013 edition of the MTN-sponsored Project Fame West Africa. His debut single, “Wait For Me”, was nominated Best Alternative Song at the 2016 Headies Awards.

Johnny Drille – Papa Lyrics

He calls me to pray

He tells the Lord

To watch over me

Oh my papa

He can like to say

As you go away

Don’t forget where you came

If you lose your way you can pray

Don’t be afraid don’t lose faith

You will find your help there’ll be a way

Just remember to pray and you’ll be ok

Papa

He calls everyday

He asks me son

I hope you’re doing okay

Oh my papa

He too dey fear say I gho go astray

Cos I walk a stranger land

And my home is so far away

Papa says if you lose your way you can pray

Don’t be afraid don’t lose faith

You will find your help there’ll be a way

Just remember to pray and you’ll be ok

Me sef dey pray for Papa

Make him find more strength and grace

And may the good Lord keep him longer

In Jesus name.

If you lose your way you can pray

Don’t be afraid don’t lose faith

You will find your help there’ll be a way

Just remember to pray

If you lose your way you can pray

Don’t be afraid don’t lose faith

You will find your help there’ll be a way

Just remember to pray and you’ll be ok

You can pray

Don’t be afraid don’t lose faith

You will find your help there’ll be a way

If you remember to pray
