For some time I’ve been meaning to holla
Thinking what this life’s gonna follow
Couldn’t tell you where my heart’s been
Not sure where I’m going
There’s a lot of pride I gotta swallow
No longer bout the Pounds & the dollar
But to Experience perfection
To experience Heaven

I know I ain’t running this race alone
I’ll search with my heart & find you
And when I find you I’ll know
That although life is a rodeo
I’ll search with my heart & find you
And when I find you I will never let go

I told the world that you were my lover
Sadly I latched to another
And another one after that
Rekindle what we had
My mind is running & running straight to the grave
I feel like You don’t wanna see my face
I need to know that you never let you go
In the first place

I know I ain’t running this race alone
I’ll search with my heart & find you
And when I find you I’ll know
That although life is a rodeo
I’ll search with my heart & find you
And when I find you I will never let go

If time flies I’m flying 1st class
Dreaming that this economy state of mind would boom blast out my past
Out of my present, out of my future
There’s no space for you to bar me, return to loser
See I ain’t saying this saying’s sake
I need God to reign in me, my brolly’s been keeping me dry for too long
I need to be drenched, soaked, saturated
Till your Word comes dripping out my skin, I got a calculation
Rather my time read quarter to destruction
Than death minutes past for eternity
Thought’s burning me
Knowing I had time but man wasted it
Missed my dates with Heavenly patriots
And hope’s a dream
Jesus freeing them & not knowing me
But the mighty rushing wind King up In His Glory
Is a risen Standard that my eyes shall see
Heaven’s the Mark, Christ is the key
Flesh has to die
I can’t live in shades of grey OAP

His other singles include tracks “Closer” and “Air I Breathe”.  Leké‘s new single“Rodeo” will be available on iTunes on Monday 19th March 2012.

He has collaborated with the likes of Dwayne Tryumf (International Gospel Artist), Victizzle (MOBO Award winner of Best Gospel Act 2009) and Guvna B (MOBO Award winner of Best Gospel Act in 2010).

Leké also featured in WriteWay-Music’s debut movie “One Way” playing his own character which sold out and premiered in Vue Cinema (Stratford City) and is currently on tour in other UK cities.

This was what Leké had to say:

” ‘Rodeo’ portrays my response to the Christian faith as well as the ups and downs of life. Just like a real life rodeo; life can throw us around and sometimes make us feel like we’ve hit the ground, but in this song I’m saying that I won’t give up and that I’ll persevere. No matter how hard life gets; be faithful to Jesus. As long as you have breath in your lungs to fight and overcome; anything is possible, irrespective of your situation”

‘Rodeo’is taken from Leké’s long-awaited EP titled ‘One Eye Open’ (due for release later this year) which will explore the thoughts and perspectives of Atheists, Agnostic’s and Christian’s and will also feature the fan favourite‘Closer’.
