EXPERIENCE Idols’ West Africa ‘ERIC’ Redefined
How often do we have a music album talk about our experiences in life as Africans? Well, now we do!
Eric Arubayi is setting new standards in his soon to be released album. Scheduled for release on 14 July 2011, Eric’s album is a follow-up on the buzz generated by his three singles(Number One, One Love One Voice & I go make am) released a couple of months back. The singles received enjoyed massive airplays & was well rated by his fans & the media
This album tells a story of life as experienced by the average young person around the world especially in Nigeria. It is fun, interesting, and cool even when laced with some stories of the many challenges faced in this part of the world.
Eric first gained prominence when he contested with the likes of Timi Dakolo, Omawumi Megbele and Jodie on the first edition of Idols’ West Africa Reality show. Years after the show, Eric has spent time on improving on his skills and grow his music to maturity before débuting with this album - you will agree, it was worth the wait.
It speaks of love we can share as one family and as lovers. It speaks of hope for a better future and of trust in a Supreme. And yes, we should have some fun too! The album has dancehall songs to spice up our celebrations.
Unlike most Nigerian artistes, Eric practices and performs with a full live band. He is specially famous for his strong vocal ability, his exceptional dress sense and his charming smile.
