Okoude James Omoruyi fondly called “Jaylaw” is a lawyer by training, a poetic mind, a writer, an MC , a teacher, an inspirational speaker, an actor, a prolific songwriter, a gospel music minister by calling and many more.
Jaylaw has always loved music from his earliest days as a child. He hails from Edo State in Nigeria but spent his formative years in Kumba town, a small town in Cameroun where he was greatly influenced by a plethora of Camerounian musicians. Upon his return to Nigeria, he became born again and his heart was captured by the power of Gospel music. His love for Gospel music has led him to direct several choirs over the years. Having garnered a lot of experience as a Choir Director and being a quintessential worship leader of repute, Jaylaw in 2014 dropped his first major single titled “IMELA” which later won the award for the Best Gospel Single at the Top Naija Music Awards which held at Oriental hotel in Lagos . He followed that up with another single titled “ODOGWU” which also won the award for the Best Gospel Song at the Maiden Edition of Nasarawa Legendary Awardsin 2017.
While at Law School, he won the award for the Voice of Nigerian Law School. He has featured on so many projects and has graced a lot of platforms within and outside the church because of his artistic abilities.
Jaylaw is just dropped his newest album “ A Million Years “ this year. He has also shot a couple of videos which are currently on some TV stations and on his YouTube channel. His newest video for his latest Album will be dropping before the year runs out.
According to him, the purpose of his music is not for profit but for impartation. He sings to impact the world, expand The Faith and to woo the hearts of men to Christ.
Jaylaw is currently a worship leader at World Royal City Church, Abuja where he ministers with Da Kings Choir under the auspices of his Father in the Lord, The Boss Prophet, Dr. Effa Emmanuel and his amiable wife Mama Elis Effa.
Jaylaw is acronym for:
And his admonition to his fans: “I am Jaylaw…Follow me…Serve Jesus!”
JAYLAW : It was Michael Jackson that once said “ let the music write itself “.
This album is one of those albums that wrote itself . This body of work doesn’t follow the trends because all the songs in the album were divinely inspired.
“ A Million Years” features amazing songs and artistes including an English/French song titled “ danser à l’église( Dance in Church).
The purpose of this album is not for sale but for impartation. I have my own favorite song in the album “OPEN Doors “ and I hope you’ll listen , get inspired and share as we worship God now and hereafter for more than a Million Years.
Let me know your favorite song in the album.
God bless you.
