The spirit of Madiba brings out the hero in us

10 December 2013, 13:36Obidike Okafor

Lagos - R&B musician GT the Guitarman who is known for singing in Yoruba with sprinklings of English, uses his recognizable falsetto voice to stir up the spirit of Madiba in everyone who listens to his latest offering titled Spirit of Madiba.

The song is more than just a tribute to the Late Nelson Mandela, it’s a call to the human spirit to remind us of the inner qualities that put Mandela on the hero pedestal.

In Spirit of Madiba GT sings about what Mandela taught through his life and the legacies he left behind.

He musically sucks listeners through his lyrics into the unbreakable and unshakable spirit that overcome challenges, and bestows courage and pride on a person - an inner strength that he dubs the spirit of Madiba.

While some individuals look to reality shows to bring out the best in themselves, GT the Guitarman croons that the spirit of Madiba makes us all heroes.
