Singer/songwriter, independent recording artist and Afrocolours creator, Uduak Daniel, has announced November 12, 2021, as the release date of her fifth album, “Prodigal Grace”.
Typical of her Afrocolours genre – a fusion of jazz, folk, gospel and African music and sounds, the 12-track album delivers all songs with distinct tones and tangs. The album is categorized into nine studio songs, one live version and two radio versions. Eight tracks were produced by Wale Adeoye for Clesoundz and Dehniece Etukudo for Audiofactory. This album also features Asari Otu (Jazzsari), Ahide Adum and Akanifiok Daniel (Mr. Teecee), adding verve to the songs.
Reflecting on this work, Uduak who says Testimony is her motivation for the Dlyte Sound & Arts produced album, also adds that, “…a lot of times we think certain things are too simple to concern God. This thinking translates into a “don’t bother God” mindset that robs us of our authority as believers. The truth is that the more you see God as too big for certain issues the more the devil will take advantage of that situation. So I thought to testify and prophesy in songs about everyday issues. In this album you will hear the struggles “William” faced around reconciling with his father. “My Goal” is an inward conversation to stay focused on God, challenges irrespective and “Your Sister” is a solidarity song to every woman, especially survivors of abuse. It is a very comprehensive album that demonstrates God’s involvement in every aspect of our lives.”
A very versatile woman, Uduak’s works so far include, “Hold On” (2002), “The Father’s Heart” (2006), Uduak Daniel EP (2010) and Uduak Daniel (2015). Singles released are “Arise Nigeria” (2015), “Your Sister” (2020) and No Remain (2021).
