“When we’re feeling black and blue”, we can always count on the soulful symphonies plated us by drum respecting artists like Aramide. Despite the continuous war for market relevance, the baby jowo crooner remains aboard the Afro-soul train and we’re more than happy to cruise with her.
Aramide is no stranger to the 53 Extra tribute seat. Our last encounter with this ball of talent was during our jolly Christmas episode and we’re happy to report growth since then. Dubbed the Voice of Afro-soul, she is the epitome of ‘steady wins the race’ and never lets the pot leak till the contents are ready.
It’s no secret that the entertainment industry is twice the battle for women and although not oblivious to this fact, Aramide chooses to identify herself as an artist before nodding to any categorical titles. Equality rooted in feminism’s equality-seeking grounds and the element of respect represented by tradition, she believes that women need to be given platforms to exhibit their art.
Aware of her strengths and ready to use her pedestal to pave the way for those still to embark on their artistic journeys, Aramide Is still in music’s lab room and continues to experiment with different sounds. Judging by her latest offering featuring Imaya and her on par fashion trajectory, she’s definitely stepping out of the box because, in all honesty, she can’t be limited nor contained.
