Proverb – Heaven
Proverb ignites a massive memory board using his mighty pen as he weaves stories of what Heaven might be looking like right now with the amount of amazing people we’ve lost over the years. He starts off with an image I think a lot of us have pictured, some huge pearly white gates opening with a warm welcome.
Verb raps about Mama Winnie Mandela, Hugh Masekela, Lulu Dikana, Flabba, Simba Mbhere, Letta Mbulu, Brenda Fassie, Michael Jackson, Shoes Moshoeu, and even Steve Jobs, Aaliyah, TK, as well as Maya Angelou to highlight a few.
Come to think of it, this song will have you wishing you could pay a visit to this place just to eavesdrop on all the greatness that is there. If there’s one thing about Proverb, he knows how to paint vivid pictures through song and this is a magnificent motion picture unfolding in my mind. We’re in heaven just jamming along to this.
