Nigerian music going global: Ayo Jay performs at New York’s Powerhouse 105.1 annual concert

Ayo Jay is slowly, surely, quietly and steadily helping to lead the movement in taking Nigerian music global by starting first, right here, in the United States of America.

On October 27, 2016, the ‘Your Number’ crooner performed at New York’s Powerhouse 105.1’s annual concert, which featured some of hip-hop’s hottest rookies and seasoned talents. Talents included Usher, Young Thug, Bryson Tiller, Young M.A, and Young Jeezy.

Ayo Jay kicked off the event by performing “Available” and “Shabba” before wrapping it up with his hit single “Your Number.”

“Your Number” (the remix) featuring Fetty Wap was No. 19 on Billboard’s ‘Hot R&B Songs chart.’
