That sounds like Lighthouse Family.

So you play the guitar? That's like another of your talents? You're such a great guy. Thumps up!

@ ibiluv- *whispering in dulcet tones* if I told you, I would have to kill you.

You should try, 'Hey there Delilah' by Plain White T's...
Someday you'll play the bills with this guitar.

Hey you. I sent a special emissary from Kenya with greetings this to you this past weekend.

She was attending a play in Nigeria and I told her chances were high that you were either producing it, directing it or some such so I asked her to look out for you and be sure to say hi.

Hope you're well. Despite her being gone.

@ standtall- many thanx for t he nice words. If there's a need, I'll call.

@ nigeriandramaqueen- We're trying to see that we do it again soon. Hopefully, it'll co-incide with your visit

@ woomie- pay the bills with that guitar? hmmm...food for thought

@ r- Went thro the forms filled that day and I thought I saw a Kenyan sounding name there. Maybe you'll ask if it was my production she came to?

@ darkelcee- you came and didnt stop by to say hello? When will you be with us again?

@ uzo- take your time, uzo. Are you still blogging? You said you were out...It called to you, abi?

@ sherri- ta, shell-club babe. I remember when our love (u n I) was strong...then you abandoned me

@ adeyera- Thank you for the nice words, but dont clone me into Nubia o. He's a great man, though

I sabi Light House family own inside o (or perhaps Nepa House Family) . And I know is that Bill Whiters of blessed memory sang this tune with great aploomb.
All others na cover versions.
He also did Lovely Day (as covered by Kirk Franklin) and Just the two of us (as covered by Will Smith).
