Ayo - I'm Gonna Dance

I will never forget the first time I heard Ayo and how stoked I was. I posted her song titled Life is Real on MusicLoad: http://www.musicload.com/2009/02/ayo-life-is-real.html and to this day still can't get enough of this artist.

She is from Lagos Nigeria, but has lived all over the world including Germany, France, the U.S. and other places.

Her repertoire of songs is vast with a great many of them being tear jerking ballads. She comes off as being very sensitive, usually laying her heart out on the table.

This video and song below was released in France by her label and never was promoted in the U.S. The director of the video was Pietro Di Zanno.

The song is a departure from her more sensitive ballads and songs. It's a grooving pop song that, because perhaps of the range she sings in and some of the phrasing, conjures up thoughts of early Michael Jackson when he was part of the Jackson 5. Enjoy!  GC
