My song stands out because of the ‘Ekiti rythm’ – Morayo
America based singer and songwriter, Morayo in a chat with Yomi earlier today on WakeUpNigeria, revealed why she brings the “Ekiti Feel” into her music.
She emphasized that it’s in a bid to be different.
“I tell people all the time that America is so bi-congested with talents, so you have to figure out what makes you stand out. I came to understand that the Ekiti stuff I bring into my music makes it stand out. It’s not about the musical techniques, it has a lot to do with something different. My mum raised us to like Ekiti music so I bring it into my music.”
Talking about her working with Cobhams and other international producers, she said,
“It an honour to have people of such caliber. The older I get, the more I get to know that I’m more fortunate.
She then added that she gets music inspiration at night.
“The sitting up at night is true, it’s not because I am super hardworking but other artistes will agree with me that sitting up at night is inspirational. There is something about 2am-3am that is inspirational too. For me, inspiration and good songs come when everyone goes to sleep around that time. “
According to her, she believes her music is all about vulnerability.
“I don’t know how to present my music without being vulnerable. Me being aware that I am being vulnerable with the people I share the music with.”
