#TheGift … where do I start with this album. I’ve never been more proud to be a brown skin girl just like Im so honored to be a mother to a King. My baby Jamil will be 4 in a few days and I realized that I gave birth to a KING. Mufassa had to remind Simba that he is the son of a king, that’s the message of this beautiful song. It is dedicated to African men and all men of African descant. Our kings are being killed and some jailed without justice. Yes I know this is a movie that shaped a lot of our childhood and we didn’t really see the true message behind it but I believe this soundtrack is a celebration and reminder of who we are. I pray you are blessed while you listen to this song. You’ve been hurt too long and we appreciate you African kings. You are royalty. Omo oba ma gba gbe, run ti oruko Baba re (Son of a king, don’t you EVER forget) You are the key to your kingdom ❤️ #LionKing #TheGift Africa the time is NOW 🙏🏼

I can’t tell you how God managed to pull this off – but this wouldn’t have happened without Him. So all the glory goes to Him. Today, this African kid, has had the privilege to have produced a song for the for the new @beyonce project. @evoke_producer The best bassist on the African continent and co-writer on this project❤️you’re the father of feel. The biggest shout out to @marielgomerez for taking a meeting with a wide eyed kid who’d just moved to New York @otag_ : the angel who started this whole thing with a single text The parkwood team: you’re an elite force of the best in the game 🚨 – thank you for taking a chance on me. And most importantly- mam’ Beyoncé – enkosi. Thank you. From the bottom of my molecular structure. I have no words to even partially express my gratitude ❤️
