Following up on the release of his last single a few months ago, fast-rising artiste, Omokaro Abiodun Ezekiel also known as Abbeyyte takes his game higher as he presents a new body of work; an EP titled Life On The High-rise.
Just as he releases his new EP, Abbeyyte puts a face to his sound with the release of a new video for his recent song entitled ‘All I Want.’ The video was shot in Lagos and directed by talented cinematographer, Kanayo for Film Mind Pro.
In Life On The High-rise, Abbeyyte outdoes himself with the release of his new three-track EP putting his music across for access by fans and lovers of good music. The body of work comprises of love-themed songs such as Egun, Ade Mi and Ogbadun.
Asked about his inspiration for the EP, Abbeyyte said Life On The High-rise is dedicated to lovers of good music. “I had a clear idea what I wanted to achieve with my new EP.
I wanted to give the people nothing other than exceptional and quality music content. I want to give them an experience and create awareness for my music,” says Abbeytte.
Born Omokaro Abiodun Ezekiel, the budding singer graduated from Igbenedion University, Okada with a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration. Abbeyyte has never hidden his passion for music. This spurred him to set up Abbeyyte Studio in Ikate area of Surulere, Lagos.
Rationalizing his music, he explains, “I will describe my music as eclectic and robust with a touch of everything such as highlife, rap, pop and alternative sound. I’ll let the fans decide how they want to receive my sound; I do not want to tag myself.”
“I have a ton of unreleased materials that I have lined up for music lovers. Music is more than entertainment for me, it is my lifeblood. Music is my safe place and therapy. I want the world to share this gift with me,” the singer says.
