The track comes barely a month after the Ensobosobo singer announced her transition from secular music to gospel.

Cece Sagini blew our minds away two years ago with the deeply moving single Feel It, and she did it again with I am Doer featuring Octopizzo. She also released the party anthem 9 to 5 in 2016.

Her last release was Ensobobo in July in 2016, after which she went under the radar with her engagement to photographer Victor Peace taking center stage.

Having tied the knot earlier this month, Cece is now on a mission to uplift and inspire through her new gospel music releases.

Come Down, a praise and worship prayer song is a fitting and amazing debut from the songbird.
