1. Preye - Ebezina
Such a lovely song by Preye. No wonder Ebezina is such a renowned song in the gospel music industry. It heals a sad heart and gives hope to someone who is in need of it. When you tend to think you have failed and all that you have wished for has been left behind, remember God is always there with you and He is listening to all that you have to say.
The track sticks to its genre’s foundation- gospel, i.e. a song that can help you connect to God. This song succeeds in doing that. I have to admit, the video for this song is great and there is nothing but good thoughts that come out of it. The concept for Ebezina Preye is admirable as you see two humans in struggle, on the verge of giving up, but find hope and make it big time. An inspiring and recommended video for you.
In case you did not know, Ebezina is the story of Preze’s life.
2. Preye - Bulie
This song is deep and has melancholy in its tone. The lyrics of the song show light the feeling of sadness. Preze thanks God for never changing and having his back in the toughest of times. Terms like ocean divider, the King of all kings portrays the might of the lord.
You can find God when you call upon him. We are alive to worship him. We would be lost without his grace. The video will feel like a cinema as you watch a common man getting kidnapped and mistreated. The thugs demand ransom from his helpless wife. What is going to happen? Will he survive this? You will love to find out. Videos with a little mystery are fun.

3. Preye - Oshimiri Atata (The River That Never Runs Dry)
“Oshimiri Atata” is an Igbo term; it signifies “the river that never runs dry”. This song is a nice gospel song. It magnifies the presence of God and says that he is the source from what we are welcome to drink, but he will never dry. It also signifies him as the source of our living- love and blessings that he showers upon all of us.
We might not be able to see or feel him, but he is among us always. The Lord will answer when your own has left you sad and seeking for love.
The video for this song is just as nice and meaningful as the others by Preye Odede. It shows love and care. A mother who suffers an accident while trying to save her baby boy is rushed to the hospital. She is severely injured and her chances of living are very low. What will happen to the boy who struggles to see his mother? It has 131K views on YouTube as of now.
4. Preye - I Am Real
I Am Real is a track from the album Ready, which was released in 2017. It is impressive how all his songs tend to hold such a clear meaning. The presence of God is felt from Preye’s music. You can say he appropriately uses the power of gospel music to do that.
The lyrics of this song state the common situation we go through in our lives. We feel disappointed by the sad feelings that get to us. This track is more of God’s message to all of us; he says that we may forget to trust and take our eyes off him because we cannot see or hear him. The mountain mover says he is real and we should not feel discouraged, he is our future.
The video of this song was shot in Atlanta . You see a troubled boy who shares a not-so-good relationship with his father. He dives in with the wrong kind of people and wrong line of work. I’m guessing you will be able to relate the lyrics of the song. It has 76K views on YouTube.
5. Preye - You Are Jesus (live ministration)
The video for this song was published on YouTube on 9th November 2016. This song is relatively slower than many of his other tracks. It has a lot of feeling to it. You can see Preye feeling the song as he performs it live in front of his fans and devotees of the Holy Lord.
His energy is great in this act as he captures the emotions of the people present there. The supporting musicians make the chorus even brighter with a brilliant performance. This performance later leads to Bulie. This video has 31.5K views and is a good gospel performance.
6. Preye - I Will Restore
This song is something that asks us to believe in the Holy One who will restore everything you have lost. It is a great help against the ghastly thoughts of death and desolation takes over us. It is a soulful song that is a push of unshakeable force against something so upsetting as suicide. Hold on to your ground as your survival is the key to another’s living.
