MUSIC: Ayo Jay ”Your Number”
Ayoola Ogundeyi Jr., or ‘Ayo Jay’ as he is widely known is an exceptionally talented and promising young singer and song writer. Born on 9, August 1989 in London, England, Ayo Jay was raised in Lagos, Nigeria.
Although he discovered his musical inclinations at a tender age, his parents placed a premium on higher education so upon graduating from high school in Nigeria, Ayo Jay moved to the United States to pursue a college degree in Finance and Investments. During his spare time, he found himself either listening to, or writing and singing songs.
In 2011, armed with the blessings of his family, Ayo Jay began reaching out to several music producers to help transform his raw abilities and artistic ideas into top quality songs.
Ayo Jay describes his genre of music as African popular music, better known as Afro-pop, which is a fusion of African traditional music, Hip-pop and R&B. In May 2013, Ayo Jay graduated with a B.B.A. in Economics from Baruch College and subsequently signed a recording deal with One Nation Entertainment.
With the brand new single #YourNumber produced by US based Melvitto, it is obvious that this young crooner, blessed with an outstanding voice and an uncanny ability to effortlessly deliver catchy and meaningful lyrics has a bright future ahead of him.
