Aquila records have moved fast to replace the departure of one of its acts, Tillaman, who was dropped by the label last week with the announcement of another act, Airboy.
Tillaman, who spent almost two years with Aquila, left the label with mutual consent to float his record label and take his music career to another deimension.
At the unveiling of Ayomide Oluwasegun Odebunmi, otherwise known as Airboy to the media in Lagos State on Wednesday, the record label maintained that it was ready to unleash another multi-talented music star on the music scene to keep their fans entertained and thrilled as the year rolls to an end.
Speaking at the event, held at Aquila’s office at Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue, Victoria Island, the record label’s PR manager, Ibrahim Babatunde, otherwise known as Skillz, stated that the move to bring in Airboy to Aquila had been in the offing for weeks, adding that Airboy’s talent coupled with his dexterity contributed largely to their decision to bring him on board.
“We are excited that Airboy is joining us. We know what he has to offer and we are ready to take his career to a whole new level that would change the game in the industry. We have set the ball rolling for him and you all will begin to see this embodiment of talent when we start to release his works for people to hear.”
The label introduced Airboy, not just by unveiling his identity to the public but also with the release of his first song on the label. The song, produced by Aquila producer Phantom and mastered by Suka is titled Ayepo, and it is a song that preaches hard work and merriment, on a perfect blend of Pop, Jazz and Afro Fusion.
Airboy who is also a songwriter had released a few songs before he signed with Aquila and has promised to make his stay with the record label count.
