Nigerian gospel act and songwriter, Pita, has just released the video of the inspiring, heart-rending song, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I Am Your SoliderÃ¢â‚¬Å“, a touching piece that gives you a front seat view into the uncertain world of the Nigerian Soldier, standing at the battle frontiers, fighting for our nation daily.
Pita explains the journey and the inspiration behind the production; Ã¢â‚¬Å“Just the pain of seeing people love and appreciate American soldiers, giving them smiles and giving up first class seats so they can be comfortable. But at home, our soldiers are a perception of slaps and koboko instead of the symbol of safety and protection.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“So I wrote the song as a man who isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t sure he is appreciated but keeps his word to protect all even in death. All he wants is for you to pray For him.Ã¢â‚¬Â
He reiterated: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Thousands of Nigerian Soldiers have lost their lives over the years and even more recently, in the on-going battles against the Boko Haram insurgency in the Northern part of Nigeria.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“This Song is dedicated to these bold and courageous men and women fighting against terrorism, risking their lives to uphold the safety and peace of our nation, Nigeria.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I Am Your SoldierÃ¢â‚¬Â was produced by RotimiKeys and Olaitan Dada with its video shot and directed on location in Nigeria by Oluyinka Davies and Del York International.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s keep Praying for our Soldiers. Indeed, the labour of our heroes will never be in vainÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â Pita urged all citizens.
