Styl-Plus is back with New Music – Aso Ibora [Blanket], they have just been signed to Eskimo Records, and released a new single.
This tune tells us about a man who is assuring his lover that no matter the ups and downs, they will always be there for each other and be each others cover. It’s great to know that the brand hasn’t lost it’s essence and authenticity.
Blaq Jerzee produced “Aso Ibora” just about the right song for our listening pleasure this Valentine’s season.
We are beyond excited to tell you fellow Nigerians that Styl-Plus is back and even better.
Let’s take you down memory lane, STYL was formed in 1997 in Abuja, Nigeria and made up of four members. In 2001, the group sang mainly pop and love songs. One of them -Lanre Faneyi passed away in 1999, so an addition was brought in –Zeal Onyecheme, the name of the group was changed to Styl-Plus. In 2002 Yemi Akinwonmi left the group to pursue another career.
The members of the group are all graduates of Federal University of Technology, Akure. Zeal, although he too attended the University, decided to pursue his music career in 2005 due to the sudden success of the group. All were bachelors in their mid-twenties at the time.
Based in Abuja, Nigeria, Styl-Plus has been dubbed Africa’s “Boys II Men” due to their ability to deliver heartfelt emotional ballads. The successful group of talented artists with their vocal harmonies, catchy tunes, melodies, R&B style, combined with meaningful and storytelling lyrics are a union between English and their native tongue Yoruba, spoken in Nigeria.
Styl-plus’s first two albums include tracks like ‘Olufunmi’, ‘Imagine That’, ‘Run Away’, ‘Call My Name’, ‘Stay Alive’ and ‘Four Years’.
Other releases include ‘Unbreakable’,’Ready To Go’, ‘On The Dance Floor Ft Jesse Jagz’, ‘Ka Fo Lo (Let’s Fly Away) ‘Jekeserelo Ft. Chics BadBoySlim (produced by Tunde Akinsanmi )’ & ‘Baby Mo’.
