Yvonne May, Nigerian recording musician living in Johannesburg, South Africa. A mother of one who loves baking, bowling, enjoys movies and shopping.

This is a testimony of God’s goodness and the journey he has brought me on.
19th October 2012, Olumide Oduwole, my husband went to be with the Lord and that was a major turning point in my life. It felt like darkness came over me and our son was just 2years old at the time.
My journey to healing started and my journey to clarity started.
The vision and the calling of God became real and tangible.
Our God, is a summary of what God has done for me in the last 6years and where he has brought me to. So it is my testimony and the testimony of many others out there who can relate to my journey.
The full album will be released in June. Look out for it. It is inspired by Isaiah 58:12
It will minister to you, it will bring you to realize God’s love in a new way, it will bring healing to you
