Olaedo Ibe’s brand new single, ‘The Divine Exchange’ sees the gospel singer-songwriter seek for a deeper meaning of Easter and what it personally means to her.
After a message from her pastor at her local church and reading a book by Derek Prince titled The Divine Exchange, Olaedo Ibe developed a deeper appreciation to God and the sacrifice he made on the cross. The Divine Exchange is a declaration of her faith through a song. “ I’m singing about what I have gained through the cross which is forgiveness, healing, acceptance, glory and eternal life,” Olaedo explains of her latest offering.
Starting out singing in church and local events from a young age, Olaedo found her forte in combining music with words of empowerment that’s relatable and touching to people, regardless of race, background and religious beliefs. Her crossover appeal gave her the opportunity to share the stage with Motown legend Peobo Bryson.
Olaedo released her debut EP, “Shine Like Gold” in 2015, which gained a nomination for the MOBO, Premier Gospel and Urban Music Awards later that year. She followed up with her second EP, “Grow to Glow” in 2018 which features ‘Lead Me’, ‘Good Life’ featuring Leke and Becca Folkes and ‘Fill Us’ (a children’s song). All three tracks from the EP claimed the top ten spot on the UK Christian Charts.
To date, Olaedo has accumulated over 100,000 combined views on her Youtube channel, over 80,000 combined streams on Spotify and over 53,000 combined streams on Soundcloud.
Hoping to build to better connection with the Most High, Olaedo presents her single, ‘The Divine Exchange’ which is out across various music platforms.
