Four-track EP from the Birmingham-based missionary reggae man Spanna who delivers the business without compromise but with plenty of creativity in his toastin'. The title cut leaves you in no doubt that this is a man sold out and wanting to proclaim the Gospel to anyone who might listen. "It Is To You" adds a dash of soul into the proceedings giving this a fresh sound and a worshipful feel. Spanna may be versatile with the chat but he also knows how to treat women with respect unlike the majority of those artists who get behind the mic so "Christian Ladies" stands out from the crowd. "Unuh Kiddin'" closes the EP with a serious message of fearing God. Overall, this all works well and it's brilliant to see Spanna and Shekinah Ministries taking their music out into the clubs and connecting with those who desperately need to hear the message. Talented, well produced and with a powerful message!
