This Sonorous Female Singer REA (Rachael Azubike. @Hysrea on twitter), is one of the more refreshing acts to make Alternate music more appealing in the Nigerian Music Industry.
Gifted with strong lyrics an ear for melody, she is reminiscent of artistes like Asa and Nneka. She finds herself in a unique position of being smack down the middle of both these powerful Nigerian musicians.
REA currently has two singles on rotation “Crowded” and “Hysteria” from her yet to be released debut album “Hysteria Lane“.
Both songs showcase the versatility of the artiste.
“Crowded” is a headbanging rock song that tells the tale of love gone sour (just incase you can’t disentangle yourself from the hypnotic melody).
“Hysteria” is more calypso and groovy also about flames of passion.
Prior to the release of the singles, she was on Season 2 of The Debaters – one of the best Nigerian intellectual reality TV Shows (sponsored by GT Bank, Inspire Africa & Moments with Mo).
She hails from Imo state. And is a graduate of Philosophy from the Imo State University, Owerri.
From “The Debaters” to the studio… A lot is yet to be said.
Yup! Get familiar!
