The Vocal Powerhouse
A talented singer -songwriter with a distinctive, rich, and soulful voice, Ibiyemi (Ibiyemi Ajakaiye) is a unique, original music talent familiar to and loved by connoisseurs of contemporary adult urban soul for a body of work characterised by emotionally-resonant lyrics exploring the various dimensions to love. And, indeed, love as expressed through her music has been the essence of Ibiyemi’s journey as a Singer.
Reflecting on her childhood, she says “There was always great music playing in our household. I grew up listening to everything from Calypso to Jazz, and juju to Folk”. Traces of these numerous genres are evident in her melodic delivery portraying her versatility and Ibiyemi, a young veteran of the Nigerian music scene, counts Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill, Tracy Chapman, and the legendary Stevie Wonder among her musical influences, without losing her traditional roots.
This fine vocalist has developed a loyal and devoted fan base courtesy singles such as ‘Can You Love Me’, ‘Ma Se Bo Se To’, and her smash hits ‘Don’t Leave Me’ and ‘Ore’ —all songs from her debut release Love Always Wins, which can be found in retail outlets and on iTunes.
Ibiyemi is a refreshing and authentic music talent whose career course bears watching as it evolves.
