Nigerian Singer Ayo Jay Clinches Major Deal with SonyRCA Records

Today, Ayo Jay took to his Instagram to announce that he has just clinched the biggest deal yet. “Say hello to latest addition to the Sony @rcarecords family,” the singer whose real name is Ayoola Ogundeyi Jr said, “Words really can’t express what this moment means to me, but I’d like to give all the Glory to God for his continuous blessings.”

The 26-year-old ‘Think About Me’ singer was born in the UK but raised in Lagos. In 2015, he burst to the scene with his song, ‘Your Number’, featuring American rapper Fetty Wap. Since then, Ayo has been gaining gradual global recognition, with huge fan base in the United States.

“It’s been a real journey from recording voice note hooks on my phone, to learning how to record in the studio, to actually making good records,” Ayo said today, “Can’t thank @onenationrecords enough for believing blindly in my ability and for developing me till date.”
