Anybody who is familiar with the Nigerian music industry would have heard of Zayo, the winner of KOGA Open House Competition.

Speaking about Zayo, ace music producer Puffy T, who produced his single ‘Basia’ said “Zayo is multi-talented, he is too good. He can sing, rap and write songs. He is very flexible when it comes to music. Initially I was not too sure about working with him, but after I heard him, I knew it would be worth it. The music industry should watch out for him. I can assure you that in six months, if he has the right promotions, he would take the industry by storm. We are working on two new songs and trust me; I was impressed when I heard them. He really killed those songs.  He has all it takes to be a star and he would be a star.”

According to DJ Klem, who produced his single ‘Colored’ “He is a very talented and good person. I would say my work experience with him was fun.  He listens to advice and takes to correction. I don’t think he can be compared to other artists, although he’s an upcoming artist, but judging by his talent and the fact that he listens and takes to corrections, I see him rise above his present state in no time. He has the potential and talent to be a star in the future. He is very talented.

Zayo who will be releasing Ewo Omo on Friday has already released ‘Basia’ which was produced by Puffy T. The videos of Basia and Ewo Omo were shot by Clarence. Get ready for Zayo

2face-and-Asa

2face just dropped a major hint that himself and Asa have recorded one song together. The two artistes have both released albums this year so it is likely that the song will be a duet single or we might have to wait for a while.

2face on Instagram captioned a photo (Above) “Asa my love. 2 much talent I can’t shout! What will be the title of this jam.?”

Keep close eye on ACEMUSIC henceforth as we look to bring the new song into your devices sometime.
