Barry Jhay’s breakout single, Aiye, portrayed him as some sort of spiritual leader. Between the wise gems he dropped, his angelic falsetto, and his Yoruba lyrics, the song listened like a Yoruba-movie script found a home in afropop’s dancehall texture as he offered life advice over the catchy beat. The song went on to enjoy mass acceptance among Yoruba-speaking music fans who took the song as a mantra to be played daily to create a positively inspired mood.
Barry Jhay was already established as a new voice in the music scene when we invited him to perform at our Aux sessions in 2019. However, he was nice enough to perform an exclusive track, Agolo during the session and it became one of our most viewed Aux sessions while confirming the street-hop singer’s ever-growing audience.
