Olá former Nigerian Idol finalist and Pepsi Fan Idol winner releases new single #Mybody ;-)
Yesterday was the last Friday of the year and with loud cheers of T.G.I.F, Nigerians put on their dancing shoes and got ready to party non-stop.
Somewhere in the heart of Lagos, some-hot-body was cooking up the fattest jam this season to have us banging into the new year.
His name is Olá! Former Nigerian Idol finalist and Pepsi Fan Idol winner dropped his debut single “My Body” at midnight and had me humming ‘Don’t touch my body…’ into the wee hours of the morning.
Born as Olamide Baruwa-Etti (@thisLUSHboy), ọlá is the 2nd son of his late father. The 22 year old graduate of Computer Technology from Babcock University is out to cause a revolution with his freshly baked single. With his passion for music and a successful try at the 1st season of the Nigerian Idol (where he was one of the top 10 finalists and voted the Pepsi fan Idol), the young song star plans to take his musical career to the next level and be counted amongst our favourite music big boys by 2012. 😉
Like most peeps his age, ọlá has always loved music but unlike most peeps, he wasn’t stuck singing in the shower or dulling a girlfriend and when asked how his talent was discovered, he said he realised that people didn’t ask him to shut up when he opened his mouth to sing and decided to try out for the Nigerian idols.
He spent a reasonable amount of his childhood days nodding to the tunes of Marvin Gaye, Barry White, Whitney Huston and Sade Adu.
Olá, crowned ‘King of Cool’ by his fellow Idol contestants, though laid back in nature has a style of music which despite being unique has a Chris Brown, Trey Songz and J. Holiday feel to it and only time will tell if his style will evolve past the bedroom. 😉
‘My body’ is a great first attempt. He describes the song as a product of his need to come out with something daring, simple and contextual whilst still maintaining his personal style and the lyrics of the song have been voted by chutzpah fam as a light-hearted aphrodisiac worthy of a second listen…
Produced by Ex-o studio, #Mybody holds promise and in 2012 may just be the new hit song chicks’ll be getting toasted to. 🙂 Please don’t leave your boyfriend at Tribecca oh! Guys beware, I see the ladies chasing a young hunk called Olá… 😉
His music is one that holds great promise and he’s definitely one artiste to watch out for in 2012. Kudos to the King of cool…
