As January 2024 concludes, Charles Adeyemi delves into Walter Spearheart’s transformative single, “Born to Love,” marking February’s entrance—a month synonymous with love celebration. 


Adeyemi initiates a contemplative dialogue, questioning the optimal time for expressing love, whether on February 14, Saint Valentine’s Day, or December 25, Christmas Day.


Drawing parallels between Born to Love and iconic gospel band Infinity, Adeyemi highlights the scarcity of songs in the Nigerian music scene possessing both lyrical prowess and profound depth. He distinguishes Born to Love by its clean, hopeful, and philosophical messages, reminiscent of Infinity’s impact.


Adeyemi portrays Born to Love as a modern counterpart to Infinity’s Olori Oko Album, particularly through the thematic resonance of “Ending human suffering.”


The songs, though a decade apart, engage in a timeless theological conversation akin to letters from Peter and Paul to the Church community in Galatia, emphasizing faith, love, and doing the will of God to alleviate human suffering.
