Nine days later, the Lagos leg will go down with performances from Iyanya and his friends.
Iyanya says he derived the title of his album from his recent departure from the R&B genre which he’s was first known for (Desire) and the new Pop style he’s adapted into his music (Iyanya).
Iyanya released his debut album in 2009, a year after winning the first ever edition of the MTN Project Fame music talent show.
