It was supposed to be an interview about Iyanya but it might as well have been an interview on Nigerian host and media personality, Toolz. She totally stole the show, flirted with Iyanya and when she was done, you felt like he was a freshman who had just been introduced to the ways of the world by a graduating senior. She also successfully turned him into one of Nigeria’s sexiest and most eligible bachelors with talks about him in boxers, his abs and much more. Toolz, abeg “cool down for Jesus” as a close friend of mine says. In fact where is your fan? A bit much on the flirting darling. You dey host nau. AML fellas (70% of you), Iyanya in boxers is so NOT for you. But y’all already knew that. Lol! It is for my 30% female audience reading this. Lol! Toolz couldn’t help but touch those abs could she? Lol! Fun interview overall.
I also appreciated her questions on the image Iyanya was creating with his videos about our females. We gotta keep asking our artists what they are thinking when they make these videos. Iyanya,to me, is not only quite shy but seems like he really would rather be doing the R &B music he loves but feels stuck doing the Kukere type of music. I feel an empathy for him, in some sense, because it is clear he is not doing the kind of music he really would love to do. However, if he leverages his success in his Kukere type songs with skillful marketing, he may be able to give the likes of Banky W a run for his money. He is young, fit, good looking and a shy guy. What girl doesn’t like that? I think the ladies would swoon even more than they already are when he segues into R&B.
“There have been several dance crazes made popular by music stars over the years; we had ‘Galala’ by Daddy Showkey, ‘Makossa’ by Kofi Olomide, ‘Yahoozee’ by Olu Maintain, Alanta by Artquake and off course the ‘Azonto’. In this exciting episode of The Juice, the “Kukere” master himself, Iyanya is in the house with Toolz and he bares all, including his T-shirt! *wink* He also tells all about his alleged relationship with Yvonne Nelson, and why he decided to leave his first love, R&B for Afro-POP.”
