Shola Allyson Chillaxes in Mzanzi

Top Nigerian songster and voice coach, Shola Allyson-Obaniyi recently came to chillax in South Africa. Her recent holiday in Mzanzi was to rest, rejuvenate and see the Rainbow nation.

The Traditional Arts music crooner was interviewed by Femi Oshin  of Agogo Ayo (Africa Magic Channel 157 flagship breakfast show). The lively interview revealed she is one of the most dynamic songsters in Nigeria. She has worked as a backup vocalist for top Yoruba maestros – Gbenga Adeboye, Ajibola Alabi Pasuma, Abass Akande Obesere, Yinka Ayefele, among others. She generously thanked her husband who bolstered her when the days were dark and she almost gave up on her singing career.

She came into limelight with the hit album Eji Owuro (2003), which was the soundtrack album for a film of the same name. After Eji Owuro, she released other albums like Gbe Je F’ori and Im’oore. Her major hits include: “Eji Owuro”, “Obinrin Ni Mi”, “Aseye”, “Isinmi”, amongst others.
