Video | Nigeria’s Maxwell? Iyanya Performs Cover of Craig David’s ‘Rendezvous’ on BBC Radio 1 Xtra

Sexy, sexy! Uuuuuhweee! Ladies, I know we are not that many on AML. Over 70% of those hanging out on AML are fellas. I now right? Nevertheless,this one is for us! Iyanya, R &B Singer turned “kukere,” crooner/dancer returns to his roots with performance of the Craid David cover on BBC 1 Xtra. I love Craig David. I bought his albums back in the days and never could get enough of his beautiful vocals.

It is a trip that Iyanya is stuck with this “kukere” thing when the “bruh” can sang. Kai! R & B music lovers in Nigeria, Africa and the African diaspora are suffering, major. I would argue that even with as good as Banky W and Darey Art Alade are, Iyanya just comes with that extra “it” factor when it comes to R & B. The vocals? Get out of here!

Hopefully, he finds a way to get that R&B in. He could easily be Nigeria’s Maxwell with those vocals.

Check on it.
