MUSIC + VIDEO : STEAL MY JOY- STEAL TEIBO ( @Sarahteibo )
Sarah Téibo has a confident sound that belies that fact that her new single, “Steal My Joy,” is her recording debut. Produced by renowned music producer GKID, this bouncing mid-tempo track with a throw-back of classic soul and generous helpings of sweet vocal harmonies should find a lot of fans among Good Music Lovers.
Sarah tells us about the song, “Very often in life, it’s the seemingly little things that tip is over the edge, like getting stuck in the elevator, trains running late etc. My producer GKID and I co-wrote this song – drawing from real life scenarios to which most listeners can relate – to encourage people not to let anything take away their joy and to make the choice to be happy. It may not always be easy to do, but it’s great to have such a positive and inspiring message especially if your day is going pear shaped and you feel like you’ve had the last straw.”
Listen … be Blessed !

Sarah Téibo is a welcome addition to the UK contemporary and urban gospel music scene. Inspired by such musical legends as Whitney Houston and Kim Burrell, Sarah has also carved out her own musical niche with a unique style that blends Neo Soul, R&B and Jazz with Gospel to create a soul stirring sound that is evident in her recently released Single ‘Steal My Joy’.
The second of four children, Sarah was born in London, England but also had the privilege of growing up in Nigeria where she started singing in choirs from the age of ten. It was from this early age that it became evident that she was one to be heard and watched.
Her love for music was highly influenced by her parents’ taste in music and their rich vinyl collection which featured amongst others, Soul and R&B legends like Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross. She grew up listening to these phenomenal artistes and recalls memories of singing along to Marvin Gaye with her mom.
Through tumultuous experiences in her early teenage years where her family was faced with eviction and homelessness, Sarah learnt the importance of faith in God and started writing music to express both her fears and her faith. These proved a great source of strength through the most trying of times.
Described by critics as a breath of fresh air to the UK urban Gospel scene, Sarah brings a soulful flavour to the genre. Launching her solo career in November 2015 with the release of her debut single ‘Steal My Joy’ which received worldwide airplay, debuted at Number 2 on the UK Christian Charts in December 2015 and also bagged her two GXMM Awards nominations for ‘Best Female Artiste’ and ‘Best New Artist’, she now takes it up a notch with the release of her debut album ‘Walk With Me’.
In this 10-track album which ranges from soulful, infectious numbers such as ‘New Day’ and ‘Everyone’s Special’ to bouncing mid-tempo tunes like ‘I Will Sing’ and deeply inspiring tracks like ‘Keep The Faith’, she fuses her uniquely soulful yet contemporary style and powerful lyrics to produce a new and exciting sound which will introduce you to the ‘dynamic force’ that is Sarah Téibo.
