Guitar-loving, jazz and soul singer Aramide could easily be lost in the mix when discussing Nigeria’s leading voices.

Armed with her guitar, the Jos-bred singer gained prominence with her single, ‘It’s Over’, released on Eldee‘s once active Trybe Records label in 2012.

A somewhat surprising win as the Best Female Vocal Performance – in the same category as Asa  at the 2015 Headies was not only a testament to Aramide’s unique talent, but also how far she has came since her run on 2006’s Star Quest reality show.

Subsequent singles like ‘I Don’t Care’, ‘Iwo Nikan’, ‘Love Me’ have shown the Baseline Entertainment singer’s maturity in crafting rich, soulful jazz sounds.

In preparation for her anticipated debut studio album tentatively slated for a 2016 release, her new single, ‘Funmi Lowo‘ ft Sir Dauda is a song that cleverly interpolates Rihanna‘s ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’, further giving credence to her brilliance and why she deserves a listening ear from Nigerians.

Aramide is NOT just another guitar-playing girl and is deserving of her own spot amongst her colleagues.
