anitaRadiant! That’s the one word that summarily describes Anita Etta’s My Deliverance Has Come, a new tract that has enrolled on the stunning list of best-selling gospel music. That the tract has succeeded, not only in meeting contemporary audio-visual standards, but can easily search and find hearts, is far from being an exaggerated assertion. My Deliverance Has Come is simply telling in every aspect!


The video’s opener is a direct message that My Deliverance Has Come is a serious topic. The image of iron bars with a human being, (prisoner in this case), void of any smile and struggling to whip herself across, already paints the picture of suffering which in the true sense of the artist’s message, depicts the turmoil the devil is good at plunging God’s children into. Even the image of lying on a bare floor (enduring cold) only portrays how hard the devil can batter.

However, the Holy Bible which the protagonist succeeds in carrying along to this dreaded closet is not only an ordinary companion for a committed victim of satan’s oppression, but a veritable symbol of hope. That image is effectively used to complete the message which My Deliverance Has Come seeks to sail across.

And so in a sharp contrasting approach, the author of the 5.32-minute-long tract presents the other side of the story which is as easy as being liberated from the devil’s maximum security prison. It is therefore the “keep calling on Him when you are in trouble” option that has moved the protagonist from the behind-the-bars pains to the soothing natural breeze she and her lovely offspring now savour at the leisure park on a bright summer afternoon. The image of yellowish penetrating sunrays that provide light to the woods is not an error – it is the filmmakers/videographer’s deliberate option to indicate that darkness has been overcome, hence deliverance.

That children are presented as characters in Anita Etta’s My Deliverance Has Come video is a perfect illustration. They are a wonderful gift from God. With deliverance, such gifts are obvious, the makers of the video are certainly indicating. The park racing with mum and kids is a true sign of love and happiness which only the Lord can provide, just like the swinging of colourful balloons would strongly mean that all is well. Perhaps, post-jail smiles from the protagonist and broad ones from the kid characters are enough to celebrate a much-desired deliverance which the singer does not mince words is saying it has happened.

But, what about the colour of their costumes…We may not be missing the point if we conjecture that the artist and her crew members decided on white, just to paint an immaculate picture of the Lord’s purity and honesty in dishing love to mankind.

In another excitingly contrasting image, the makers of My Deliverance Has Come present the rose flower which the main character smiles over and pampers with a soft touch, as opposed to the bitter grab she previously had on the prison iron bars in a difficult struggle to unchain herself. This, to the artist, implies that life would undoubtedly be a bell of roses, if you’re delivered and you stay in the Lord.

With repeated choruses of “my deliverance has come - Jehovah has done it for me - nothing can hold back…” Anita Etta in her new track is simply buttressing her message for it to sink properly. This is in a typical Anita Etta spirit who would speak more than she sings, after all, her genre of music is about creating positive impact on the lives of the audience.

My Deliverance Has Come is the leading track in Anita Etta’s latest album that has eleven (11) songs and was released on September 12 this year. The track and its video are respectively produced by George Okudi and Avant Multimedia’s William Rivera.
