In her latest single, “The Divine Exchange“, British-Nigerian gospel singer-songwriter Olaedo Ibe delves into the deeper significance of Easter and its personal meaning to her.
Olaedo Ibe gained a profound understanding of God and His redemptive work on the cross after listening to a sermon from her pastor at her local church and reading The Divine Exchange by Derek Prince. Inspired, she composed this song to express her beliefs.
“I’m singing about what I have gained through the cross, which is forgiveness, healing, acceptance, glory, and eternal life,” Olaedo explains about her latest work.
Olaedo Ibe, a British Nigerian singer, songwriter, and composer, was born and raised in London, but spent part of her childhood in Nigeria. In Igbo, Olaedo means “gold”. She began singing in church and at local events, quickly discovering her talent for blending music with inspirational lyrics that resonate with people of all backgrounds, regardless of race, ethnicity, or religious beliefs.
After returning to the UK, Olaedo performed at Cadogan Hall at the age of 14 alongside Grammy Award winner Peabo Bryson.
In 2015, Olaedo released her debut EP, Shine Like Gold, which led to a MOBO Premier Gospel Music and Urban Music Award nomination later that year.
In 2018, she released her second EP, Grow to Glow, featuring the songs “Lead Me“, “Good Life” with Leké and Becca Folkes, and “Fill Us” (a children’s song). The EP’s three songs all debuted in the top ten of the UK Christian Chart.
With the goal of fostering a deeper connection with the Most High, Olaedo presents her single, “The Divine Exchange“. Listen to it below:
