Lyrics: Johnny Drille – Papa

Papa
He calls me to pray
He tells the Lord
To watch over me
Oh my papa
He can like to say
As you go away
Don’t forget where you came
If you lose your way you can pray
Don’t be afraid, don’t lose faith
You will find your help, there’ll be a way
Just remember to pray and you’ll be okay
Papa
He calls everyday
He asks me son
I hope you’re doing okay
Oh my papa
He too dey fear say I gho go astray
Cos I walk a stranger land
And my home is so far away
Papa says if you lose your way you can pray
Don’t be afraid don’t lose faith
You will find your help there’ll be a way
Just remember to pray and you’ll be okay
Me sef dey pray for Papa
Make him find more strength and grace
And may the good Lord keep him longer
In Jesus name
If you lose your way you can pray
Don’t be afraid, don’t lose faith
You will find your help, there’ll be a way
Just remember to pray
If you lose your way you can pray
Don’t be afraid, don’t lose faith
You will find your help, there’ll be a way
Just remember to pray and you’ll be okay
You can pray
Don’t be afraid, don’t lose faith
You will find your help, there’ll be a way
If you remember to pray

Papa by Johnny Drille is a song that was dedicated to his father and possibly all the other fathers in the world seeing it was released two days before father’s day.  The song is your normal serenading track from Johhny Drille. He talks about his father’s contributions to his life, growth and development.

Positives

Papa starts with a serenading set of instrumentals, most notably a saxophone and a piano playing. Jonny Drille starts the song on a very good note. The song was able to maintain the same tempo for the remaining duration of the song.
Papa is a song dedicated to JohhnyDrille's and every other loving dad out there. The song talks about a father, most notably Johnny Drille's father n his life while growing up. He talks about all the encouragements his father has given him and how he was brought up spiritually.
We loved the serenading and sonorous vocals of Johhny Drille in "Papa". Johny Drille managed to engage us with his vocal prowess and we were impressed by the subtle but stable varieties in his vocal range.
Papa does have an interesting melody. It was mixed with Johnny Drille's unique alternative-like style of Rhythm and Blues. There were even elements of the soul genre blended into the mix to give us an engaging tune.

Negatives

For some reasons, it appears we quickly get tired of Johnny Drille's sound. The same can be said for this song. Do not get us wrong, we love Johnny Drille but we just noticed it would be rather difficult to listen to one of his songs back to back and enjoy it. It can even be argued that it will be difficult to listen to a whole album of Johnny Drille's on the spot.
