SHOLA ALLYNSON LAUNCHES NEW ALBUM
On her new album “imo’ore”, Shola takes a new and refreshing direction as she collaborated with music maestro, Cobhams Asuquo, who produced three of the five tracks in “imo’ore”. The duo’s collaboration of styles gave birth to a masterpiece of worship where international celestial sounds meet home grown Yoruba gospels. The new album also includes her hit love song “eji owuro”.
In spite of a sale of several million copies of her first three albums, (Eji Owuro – 2003, Gbeje Fori – 2005, and Ire – 2007), shola’s music has been the best kept secret of the south-west Nigeria. The new album imo’ore breaks the bubble and engages a new crop of followers in Nigeria and beyond with songs like “Mimo” and “Isinmi”.
