Liya – Alari EP
21 years old Nigerian singer, song writer, Liya, real name Abdulsalam Suliyat Modasola has finally dropped her debut studio project titled “Alari” which houses 5 tracks featuring Davido as the only guest artist.
On her debut EP, Alari (Yoruba for “stand out”), Davido Music Worldwide’s latest signee reveals her range by employing a spate of genre-mashing stylistic choices and stirring vocals to convey weighty messages. With a sole feature from label head Davido, the rising star showcases her talent over six tracks rooted in her Yoruba culture and heritage.
On “Adua” and “Olodumare”, she riffs in Yoruba across twinkling production while crooning softly about her experiences, before switching things up on the upbeat “Lakiriboto” and “Alari”.
