Eric Arubayi first gained prominence when he contested with Timi Dakolo, Omawumi Megbele and Jodie on the first edition of the Idols’ West Africa Reality show, and since then he has been working hard on improving his skills and maturing his music. Now he is ready with his debut album which is scheduled for release on 14, July 2011.
The crooner’s album is a follow-up to his three recent singles – Number One, One Love One Voice & I Go Make Am – which received massive airplay. According to an official media release, ‘Redefined’ “tells the story of life as experienced by the average young person. It speaks of the love we can share as one family and as lovers. It speaks of hope for a better future and of trust in a Supreme”.
Interestingly, Eric practices and performs with a full live band. He is especially known for his strong vocal ability and his charming looks.
We’ll keep you posted when the album lands!
