Penny & Sparrow
There are things that we ought to be afraid of. Things that, rightfully, send cold sweat nightmares. For kids it can be anything from the darkness under a bed, or strangers, or crossing a busy street. For adults it might change face a bit and become things like sickness, job security, or heartbreak. And sometimes, when you point the flashlight right at the thing you’re terrified of, you declaw it. You take its mask off and it returns to being an empty, boring closet with nothing inside to harm you. Or maybe the light shows an unexpected beauty in the place of what you thought was horrific. Other times, though, you aim the beam straight into the pitch black and the thing that you prayed wasn’t real, the one with all the teeth, is right there smiling at you.
After gaining traction from her song “No Turning Back,” featured recording artist Ciara’s birth announcement video, the song went viral and Joy Oladokun’s voice was no longer a secret.
Joy will create her own path by marching to the beat of her own drum and pave the way for the next generation of music.
