This is the Nigerian born worship leader's third album following on from the success of 2002's 'Restoration' (credited just to Riversongz) and 2005's 'Declaring His Power'. 'Declaring His Love' is infused with influences from rock, pop, Nigerian rhythms, soul and more. "Hey Ya!" is a synthesis of Native American chant and contemporary urban gospel, a highly original approach that grows on you. In comparison "Oh Lord Our God", "Holy Is The Lord" and "Your Mercies" are softer worship songs with a more gospel praise feel. Muyiwa has teamed up with EMMA award winning producer Eddie Marin (Jennifer Lopez, West Life) to produce another winning album.
