Ty Bello: Versatility Personified!

By on August 16, 2007

From Kush to Depth of Field to an excellent solo album called Greenland. Special kudos to Ty Bello for making giant strides and sharing her versatile talent with the world.

Encouraging and inspiring…proud to be Nigerian!

    I was supposed to go for a run and decided to stop by. Best decision of the day. This video and song brought tears of joy and happiness to my eyes.

    The song is positive and the images are beautiful. An absolute delight especially in a world laden with sadness, violence and misfortune. “The Land is Green…and it is all mine” The lyrics are filled with absolute hope.

    I loved it, loved it, loved it!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Ty has been my inspiration for years. She is great and lovely. Talented and unique though she has her own fears and struggle like we all do. It so amazing to hear her deepness and life exprencies. Truly I know the land is green and green for me

    @uknaija, pamelastitch, nilla and omosewa – thanks for stopping by…imagine what the rest of the album must sound like…I can’t wait to hear it and if any one of you have heard it please feel free to share you thoughts

    @nuel – I had been looking for the right word to describe the song since I heard it but it was eluding me until I read your comment. Your description of TY did it for me. The song is HUMAN…very human because it reveals our struggles and search for a meaning of why we have been put here…when there is so much negativity swirling around especially those of us from Naija that have to deal with stereotypes which are not altogether flattering. Thanks for stopping by.
