About the event

Myra Maimoh Releases New Song Titled “Dear Daddy” Myra explores despair and hope and everything in between in this heartwarming song.

Grand  Rapids, Michigan: Singer, songwriter and entrepreneur, Myra Maimoh is  proud to announce that she’ll be releasing her latest song “Dear Daddy,”  through Motherland Cultural Connections on October 30, 2020. The song  takes listeners on a euphoric journey of pain, love and hope. The song,  which is very personal to Myra, is addressed to her father who had passed on, telling him of everything that has happened since he left the earth.

Dear  Daddy is a melodious ode to the peace of death and the hope of life. A  story that reminds us that no matter the tough times we are passing  through, we can always look forward in positive expectations.

The  first verse of the song focuses on the family, how they are happy and  thriving. In this part, Myra goes “Your grand kids are growing” And  follows with “They are happy they are soaring,” and melts our hearts  with “Mummy is smiling, watching them achieving. Oh dear Daddy! Oh dear  Daddy!”    

                      On the second verse, Myra talks  about the bad things that have been happening- the war in her home  country Cameroon, and how it has made everywhere unsafe and taken the  lives of loved ones as well. She cries, “Can you believe we are in war?”  They burnt down a whole village. She also talks about the COVID 19  pandemic and the havoc it has caused all around the world. She tells  him, “Wong veni kuvsini wong veni kuvsini.” which translates the world  has changed, the world has changed. But she is happy he is safe in  heaven “I'm shenri ma dzen ven nyuy.”

The  song’s bridge brings a happy, upbeat and energetic mood that says no  matter what is going on, life is worth living it to the fullest. “Ngen  si dze si kuun. A ver ki mo kur shiliv”: “There is so much pestilence,  but we know to persevere.””Viban vi dze nkokong. A ver Mum foa kongnin:”  There is so much hatred, but we try to love in return.”

Recording the song Dear Daddy was a somber moment for Myra. She  says “The idea was to tell dad that everyone is doing fine, that his  family is alright and he need not worry in spite of all that’s going on.  On the flip side, he has it “good” because he isn’t here to see how bad  things are in the North West and South West. He wasn’t here to witness  the killings and just how dangerous it is now living in our beautiful  towns. I know that would break his heart just like it breaks ours. But i  also wanted to tell him just how everyone is dealing with it. In these  times of sickness, we are persevering and loving even when we are faced  with hatred.”

Myra’s message in this song is simple: life is hard but  it is worth living. Therefore, we cannot afford to give up. We have to  live one day at a time until we reach our goals because as long as we  can breathe, we have hope for a better world for ourselves and the  generations after.
