Mr. Googz – Redemption (Official Video)”>Mr. Googz – Redemption (Official Video)

Redemption is a story of how the old secular Mr.Googz got converted, this is vividly articulated in my first three lines of the 1st verse- ”The day dat i made that confession- i saw di light am a different creation- my life took a different turn an His life in mi life is a divine connection” – the song is a an introduction of the NEW me, every word in it is a reality in my life and a firm conviction.
