Each song is about my unconditional love for an artist being transformed into a sound of what God’s love for us feels like. In the relationship, I loved someone with all my might through their post-traumatic stress disorder, and it revealed to me a sense of how God loves us unconditionally. These are feelgood tunes that you can dance to and reflect upon. The healing will come when you imagine the lyrics as if God was singing them to you. One love.”

Fumilayo is now available on all major streaming platforms and is the perfect soundtrack for the summer season. Join Marysa Ada on her musical journey and experience the joy and healing power of her music.
