ENIOLA AYO IS FOR NOLLLYWOOD AND THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

 

‘…At one point in my life, I decided to take a shot at having a commercial
career in the music industry. I know it’s going to take a lot of drive and
craft but I am game for it…’– @eniolaofficial1

I can’t remember the last time we had an actress who also successfully
doubles as a respectable name in the Nigerian music industry. Most of the
time, it’s either they lack the A-game for the music industry or they fail
to strike the right balance on how to manage both industries successfully.
We’ve been too long not to find the Jennifer Lopezes, Justin Timberlakes
and Tyrese Gibsons of this world in the Nigerian arts and entertainment
industry, but maybe Eniola Ayo will make the difference. She’s a bundle of
talents. Beautiful, hungry for success and she’s got her eyes on conquering
both Nollywood and the Nigerian music industry.

Born into a Christian family, this native of Ogun State studied Traveling
and Tourism in England.  Her singing career kicked off from church (RCCG)
where she was part of the mass choir coordinated by Pastor Kunle Ajayi. ‘At
one point in my life, I decided to take a shot at having a commercial
career in the music industry. I know it’s going to take a lot of drive and
craft but I am game for it.’ – Eniola Ayo started talking to me about her
career.

Let’s talk about the music projects you have worked on (recorded)?
I recorded two songs in London. With two different London based producers.
The songs are ‘Iwo’ produced by Shabbach and ‘Aye Alaye’ produced by OY.
Puffy Tee produced ‘Alo’ while Egwuota was produced by DJ Toxiq.  I have
also worked with other producers like Fliptice, Dr Frabs, Ipitch, Ollyjay,
Beatbyben and Bazetu. I have also recorded with Pasuma (Fuji icon), Gabriel
Afolayan and many more.

Kindly describe your music and how you want your audience to always
perceive you and your brand?
I am versatile musically, but my kind of music is Afro-pop. My content is
about positive messages. I love to inspire and encourage my audience. I
want my sound to be ‘feel-good music’. I’m also about girl power and
constantly pushing traffic to ‘NO to domestic violence.’

Let’s talk about your acting career?
Officially I started acting in 2015 when I played a role in Mo Abudu’s soap
opera titled DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES AFRICA on Ebonylife TV. I also played a
major role on Yomi Fabiyi’s movie, titled CLASSROOM LOVE. Right now, there
are a couple of movie projects in the pipeline.

Music and acting, how are you managing both?

Just as they say the sky is big enough for birds to fly without colliding,
and with my amiable team, I manage both music and movie well…

When should your music audience expect a full body of work from you?

Mid 2018.

Tell us talk about any activation where you have performed or are planning to
perform.

I’ve performed on some major platforms in Nigeria like Felabration, Ovation
Carol, Nigezie 10th anniversary etc.; also I was on tour last year in 7
states in the United States with many more to come…

In Nigeria, who are the artistes you will like to do collaboration with?

I would say all, because they all have their different feelings musically…
