Lagos| Nigeria – With a growing legion of fans and soaring mass appeal, suave looking singer Praiz has been busy in recent times spending time in the studio and putting finishing touches to his debut
album for X3M music. His style, which is a blend of soul and R&B and his ability to hit high notes as he teases with his high pitched voice, catches one’s attention easily. The fast rising RnB singer/vocalist who recently stunned guests at the MBGN 2011 grand finale in Lagos when he delivered a performance hailed
as ‘unforgettable’ by critics is set to release two new singles titled
‘I love you‘ and ‘Jekalo’. According to the uber talented act; ‘I love you’ featured production
efforts by Wole Oni while TY mix produced ‘Jekalo’.
The two new singles are expected to come out as first official efforts by Praiz in 2011. He was earlier reported to be working with top producers in the music industry and was even the star of the evening
at the recent champagne conversation held at Eko hotels in Lagos. Speaking on the inspiration behind
his latest offering, the eclectic singer said “I’m offering these two songs to anyone who has ever felt
the sweetness of love. Working on ‘I love you’ and ‘Jekalo’ was a positive experience for me and I’m talking to love birds on these cuts. It’s from Praiz with love and I’m sure everyone will fall in
love with these songs’’. Praiz first came to national limelight when his unique singing style caught the eyes of many at Project Fame TV reality show where he thrilled viewers across Africa and beyond. He was adjudged second runner up as he showed great signs of promise and has been tagged ‘the golden voice’ as a result of his vocal dexterity.
Since then he has gone on to wow music critics and fans with cameo appearances and collaborative efforts with top artistes in Nigeria; most notably his stellar performance on M.I’s ‘Epic’ and a guest appearance on alternative singer Bez’s ‘Super Sun’ album. Praiz is signed to X3M music, a Lagos-based label founded by Steve Babaeko.
