Chere is an Igbo word which means “wait on God”. Its a song to encourage those who think and feel God has abandoned them. It’s a song to restore broken relationships between God and His people, to restore covenants between the creator and the creature, to revive the Christians and re-orient them that God is still very much on the throne and that He still answers prayers.
According To Bob Joe; I wrote this song in the year 2014. It was the 4th year of battle between my purpose for life from God and purpose of the devil for me. The devil tried all his best to shift me from the way God has prepared for me but God proved that He is still God over my life. These four years I went through disappointment, confusion, delay and frustration but all I did was never to let go of Him(God), I held on to His word for me over my life. And 2015 became a new change for me till now.

LYRICS (BOB JOE – CHERE)
He hears your cry, He hears your voice
When you pray in the middle of the night
When you call on Him, when you call on His name
Then He will say; my son just wait on me
I’m gonna come just in my time
What an awesome God we serve
What a mighty God He is, He has never changed
He’s the God of Abraham, He’s the God of Isaac and of Israel
Just put your trust and faith in Him
Have faith in God (aah, aah, aah, aah)
He will never let you down
Just hold on to Him (aah, aah, aah)
He will never let you fall…
Chere oo (wait), chere oo, chere oo
To kwasi chukwu obi (depend on God)
Chere oo, chere oo, chere oo oo
To kwasi chukwu obi
Bible verse quotation (Isa 40:31)
And when it looks as if all hope is gone
Just remember that He’s still on the throne
For He’s the God of yesterday, today and tomorrow
Don’t lose your faith in Him
