about

Kingsley Ibeneche's revolutionary love song My Freedom is out today on Astro Nautico. In his words:

"My Freedom has definitely evolved from over a year ago when I first wrote it. It was innocent, simply about love in its purest.

"I didn’t know it would turn into the monster and the medicine. I never thought each word recited would have a need in this moment. I didn’t know the importance of this truth would stand so firm.

"I think because the timing and evolution of this song is so perfect, it scares me. I prayed that this song wouldn’t be a mournful song. But it would be a song of uplift, and conscious bravery.

"I’m even scared to take the people's attention away from what’s going on. Something in me doesn’t want to soothe the people. I rather them burn anyone who stands in the cause's way. I want them to feel every blow and let it fester.

"But of course I am a prophet and a king. The wise man cares not about the fruits of action or inaction. He makes a choice, and stands by it. So I stand by the healing of the people, and I am glad that god bestowed upon me this message over a year ago. I am honored to be a servant to the cause. 'My freedom' is a choice!!"
