After getting the much needed recognition, an award at the HEADIES on January 1, 2016, Afro-soul singer, Aramide is waxing stronger in her music. The singer teamed up with YBNL’s Adekunle Gold for the video of her latest single ‘Love Me’ released a couple of weeks ago. The video is colourful and shows Aramide and Adekunle Gold play love interests. It was directed by Stanz Visuals and comes out this week. The song was produced by Tintin.
Aramide is an afro-soul and jazz artiste. Blessed with a good mastery of the guitar, the lady signed to Baseline Music sings about love, betrayal, friendship, trust, and the attendant joys and aches of womanhood. Her singles include ‘I Don’t Care’, ‘Iwo Nikan’, ‘Feeling This Feeling’, ‘It’s Over’ and ‘I Don’t Mind’, an up-tempo piano-laced jazz rendition which tells off the haters of her relationship. Her musical influences include Erykah Badu, Miriam Makeba, Sade, Angelique Kidjo and other greats.
She discovered the talents of singing and writing as a teenager and decided to nurture them. Aramide participated in the Star Quest talent hunt show, making her part of a band that finished third runners up. Her ever growing solo career took off shortly after graduation.
Her approach to song-writing and her soft but deep and powerful voice are some of the things that stand her out.
