TY Bello, ace photographer and singer, has released a new single titled ‘Cold’.
The singer said she penned the song after a petrol tanker exploded on Otedola Bridge in Lagos.
She described the song as “a wake-up call to me” and the country, adding that it is also a “cry for healing, a call to repentance, to remembrance”.
TY Bello said: “This song gave me the courage to pull out images I had made on a personal assignment to the North East 2 years ago. I wanted to see for my self what was going on.
The video of the song, according to the singer, is a photo-reel of “people affected by years of insurgency,” including children, wounded soldiers, and families.
She added: “As a nation, I sense a very strong pressing in for the future. We must contend for it but I believe that somehow, we must address this coldness and that there really cannot be a future unless in our hearts, we carry the weight of every Nigerian life.
“We are a nation truly in need of healing and a nation in need of an awakening and this is the truth. To move forward like we should, we must not forget to look back and right the wrongs.”
