Akande Olashile Juwonlo popularly known as iJay released his debut single which probably is a tribute to his name as it is appropriately titled Mo Juwonlo.
The song is sampled off his feature on MI’s 2014 Chairman Album song titled “The Middle” which also featured Olamide.
The in-studio bonding must have been mutually satisfying for all the artistes, as Mo Juwonlo reversibly features M.I and Olamide.
iJay, in his early 20s, the Gbagada – Lagos based singer is not new to struggle and Mo-Juwonlo is a cathartic expression of the uprooting of deeply entrenched in-securities planted as poisonous verbal seeds over many years of uncertainty but culminating in triumph through faith and self- confidence as iJay sings about victory over his detractors. The sound is hip-hop/pop, but the emotion is raw and unrehearsed. With a voice comparable to that of 9ice, iJay’s vocal delivery is quicker and more tenacious; slashing through the beat and reminiscent of once broken bones that have now fused to become thicker and even stronger.
