Solo artist Nyja who is born & raised in East London is a unsigned singer/harmoniser (as she labels
herself).
Nyja sound is kind of unique as she started off as an MC in a collective crew called Raw Ones who had a
regular set on Rinse FM every Wednesday 12-2 (graveyard shift as they call it).
Which one of the sets had one of the biggest listeners of all time due to the set which Wiley was
involved in on Dj Darkwin set.

After a few clashes radio sets such as Dejavu, Flirt FM,

 

Raw Mission and list goes on Nyja decided to
switch up and go back to her natural roots which was the love of afroswing afrobeat .

The music which
she grew up listening to such was Sunny Ade, Ayinde Barrister , WAsu and the late Fela KUti.

Follow is a feel good track that will encourage any listener to take to the dance floor.
Sitting well within the Afrobeats traditional sound instrumentally, it also has a great singalong
vibe applied to it which is well delivered by the artist Nyja.

“I created this track for people who love to dance or want to learn.
I also wanted to make the melody catchy for those that like to sing.
I really hope listeners enjoy this track as much as I do and follow my journey u go enjoy small
small no be small ting.”
