I'm not usually one to do this, but I just have to cos I'm sooooooooo feeling this girl... I'm talking about TY Bello. She used to belong to the girl band KUSH which comprised Lara Bajomo, Emem Ema and TY Sokefun and they had the popular hit: Let's live together.

A graduate of Economics from the University of Lagos, TY also belongs to Depth of Field, a collective of six Nigerian Photographers: Kelechi Amadi Obi, Emeka Okereke, Uchechukwu James-Iroha, Zaynab Odunsi, Amaize Ojeikere and TY Bello. Their aim? Creating a complex portrait of the Lagos and its multitude of dimensions....from what I have seen of them, they have done very well...
The girls from KUSH have gone on to do their own things and TY Bello's new album Greenland is one of the products of the disbandment of the group.. I have so far heard only one song from the Album: Green Land and I am completely blown away! I heard it about a month and a half ago on CoolFM and I heard it on and on.... yesterday I was watching MTV Base- which is usually not my fav spot on TV- and I saw the video..It was simply a breath of fresh air!! I was so impressed by the video, I just kept dancing and singing along....I will SO buy that Album the minute I see it!!!
Anyway, everyone should look out for it cos it's really a nice song and I'm not going to list any other song as is my tradition on Fridays...

Guys, enjoy your weekend, stay safe and don't do anything I wouldn't do!!!

One love my people...
