Aramide urges fans to be different
Alternative singer, Aramide is urging her fans to embrace being different.
The award-winning singer who recently performed to excited fans in Calgary, Canada on her first tour to the North American country, said she got to this stage because she listened to her heart.
“All through my career, I’ve had people tell me my brand of music won’t do well in Nigeria,’ she wrote on her Instagram page.
“‘Tweak your sound’, ‘Make it danceable’ they said. But I am glad I’ve stuck to doing what I know how to do. I am glad about the acceptance of all my singles, everything I have put out has been widely accepted even when we thought Nigerians won’t accept it.
“Right now, Alternative Music is the new cool and I am glad to be one of the very few who hold the key to the new era of Nigerian music and I am glad that we are finally being recognised.#dearNaija alternativeartiste your music will be heard. Don’t follow the crowd, BE DIFFERENT!”
Some of Aramide’s songs include Feeling The Feeling, Odun Tunutun, Iwo Nikan, I Don’t Care, Love Me and FunMi Lowo.
