Gibrilville Unleashes Trendy Track Titled, “Angels”

Afro beat artist Gibrilville gears up for the release of his latest single “Angels”! The new trendy track follows up the success of his previous single “Dididaada”. His previous popular record has reached nearly half a million streams on Spotify alone. Collaborating once again with producer Jaysynth, ”Angels” explore Gibrilville’s journey with spirituality and the trials and tribulations of his life. As of May 22nd 2022, his hit single has been available on all major streaming platforms.

Inspired by his time in prison, Gibrilville used “Angels” as a way to reflect on his strength. The song, which has storytelling at its core, unravels Gibrilville’s narrative, as he explains:

“I have experienced a lot of challenges and spiritual battles since I have been back in Africa. Curses, court cases, and attempts on my life have become a norm. In this record, I channeled those stories and tried my best to tell the story as it happened”.

The song can be broken down into segments. Taking inspiration from the phrase “obeah dibia al-amin”. Obeah refers to a kind of sorcery practiced in the Caribbean. While Dibia, which derives from the West African dialect, Igbo, means master of knowledge and wisdom. This term is used for traditional healers. In fact, it struck a chord with Gibrilville after having his tarot cards read to him. Discovering that in his previous life, he was a traditional healer. Al-Amin is an Arabic name for a male that means they are devoted, honest, trustworthy and loyal. Which reflects Gibrilville’s religion as a Muslim, while also paying homage to his late father, who was named Lamin.

The Gibrilville Effect

Additionally, the attention to detail in Gibrilville’s lyrical story is important to the song as he invites listeners into his past. Also, with dreamy piano melodies and atmospheric synths, Gibrilville opens with a smooth flow. “At the age of 7, I started having bad dreams…” he describes being attacked in his dreams by jinns, all throughout his childhood. A mellow Afro beat kicks in. Beautifully building the foundation of the ambient production, while Gibrilville speaks of his time in prison as he turned 30. Here he remembers the night Satan visited him. Now, he reflects how 10 years later, living in Ghana, he is a much stronger person because of his experiences.

While “Angels” has a chill-hop approach, hidden in the words are a more sinister element. Creating impact as the closing line ‘Somebody wants me to die tonight’ is hard-hitting. Leaving listeners on the edge of their seats, yearning for more.
