Halleluya by Johnny Drille is bursting my brains out!

Halleluya by Johnny Drille is more, very more than what I expected. Of course, Johnny Drille shows up tight but really, the concept of this song is mind blowing. I like the subtle infusion of old school Gospel and the light tapping of beat to local praise and worship at the Halleluya part.

And for crying out loud, Simi is a beast. Johnny Drille and Simi collaborating is the best thing that can happen to Nigerian Music y’all. They both know how to merge modern and local. Halleluya by Johnny Drille was brilliant. They have really fresh romantic lines mixed with awesome melody.

I absentmindedly followed this Halleluya release process on his Instagram page. This evening, my colleague began to gush about it, so I went to check on YouTube

I am very tired of the one liners Nigerian singers repeat, with lyrics that make no single sense. I think it’s high time Nigerian musicians sat down for inspiration. I like the depth of Johnny Drille’s music. I also like that I can relate to his music.


Just when I am just recovering from the crushing I had on Johnny Drille, he drops Halleluya. Now I have to shuttle between Romeo and Juliet AND Halleluya. Why so unfair Johnny mooooooooooo… How will you listen to Johnny Drille’s songs and not want to love? His lyrics always hit it right on spot.

Anyway, if you would like to sing along, the lyrics of Halleluya is just right below. You can listen to Halleluya on YouTube too. Just click on the YouTube Play button below.

[LYRICS] Halleluya by Johnny Drille ft. Simi

I really like you and it’s true
There is only one, just you
I find it hard to say
I wish you knew I am on your instagram all day, Stalking you
You in my life, its all I’m hoping for
If you go be mine, yeh, na forever more
I wan talk my mind and say how I feel inside
But I fear you won’t, you won’t feel the same for me

Oh if she loves me, Halleluya
If she say she love me, Halleluya
Oh if she loves me, Halleluya
If she say she love me, Halleluya

I see the way he, the way he looks at me
I know the things he, the things he does for me
Boy if I could read your mind, I wonder if I’ll be inside
If you could be mine, I feel like I’ve been drinking wine
If you call me baby, me I no go mind o
I know you want me baby, make you talk your mind o
You see that I’ve been waiting, me I no go lie o, me I no go lie o
Maybe I’m just crazy, but

I think he loves me, Halleluya
Oh if he loves me, Halleluya
One day he’ll tell me, Halleluya
I think he loves me, Halleluya

I don dey love you for a long time my girl
E be like say you no know, say I care
I wish you knew what I’m feeling for you (Darling)
You’re so extraordinary and thats no ordinary thing

You say you love me, Halleluya
My baby loves me, Halleluya
The way you love me, Halleluya
Because you love me, Halleluya
You say you love me, Halleluya
My baby loves me, Halleluya
The way you love me, Halleluya
Because you love me, Halleluya
You say you love me, Halleluya
My baby loves me, Halleluya
The way you love me, Halleluya
Because you love me, Halleluya

Halleluya
