about

Indeed ‘joy has come home’ when such a rare and pleasurable moment presents an honest, well-preserved talent! Ayo-Dele determine a magnificent style and sound all her own


October 12th 2012 Ayo-Dele’s debut album launch of Forever Becoming. The historically fascinating venue of choice is the, Tabernacle, Notting Hill, which in its present incarnation has played host to other leading talent including Adele and Corrine Bailey-Rae.


On the night Ayo-Dele (Yoruba for ‘joy has come home’) will serenade the expected capacity crowd with songs in both English and the Nigerian language, Yoruba.

Ayo-Dele introduces a sound that you have never heard before but will certainly want to hear over and over again. The independent artist is vocally gripping and provides all the warmth and sincerity markedly absent in much of today’s mainstream sound.


Forever Becoming is dualism at its finest; where the rich, lucid traditions of Nigerian storytelling and musical influences from the UK blend to evoke emotions that every woman can relate with. The artist explains the inspiration behind the album and how it manages to speak with both a singular yet plural voice: “It's about me! ...but could also be about any woman. Essentially it's a woman’s journey and the discovery of self, faith love, and hope.”
It is this particular dualism that gives the album its rich sense of proximity to every woman’s past, present and future.

Translation by Ayo-Dele


Summertime (igba Erun)
And the living is easy (awa sin gbe ni irorun)
Fish are jumping (Ejanfo o)
And the cotton is high ( owu si ga)
Your daddy's rich (Baba re lowolowo)
And your mama's good looking (Mama re si lewa)
So hush little baby don’t you cry (Jo dake omo mi maa sukunmo)

One of these mornings you're gonna rise up singing
And you'll spread your wings and take to the sky
But untill that morning, there ain't nothin' can harm you
With daddy and mammy standin' by

Summertime (igba Erun)
And the living is easy (awa sin gbe ni irorun)
Fish are jumping (Ejanfo o)
And the cotton is high ( owu si ga)
Your daddy's rich (Baba re lowolowo)
And your mama's good looking (Mama re si lewa)
So hush little baby don’t you cry (Jo dake omo mi maa sukunmo)


So hush little baby don’t you cry (Jo dake omo mi maa sukunmo)
So hush little baby don’t you cry (Jo dake omo mi maa sukunmo)
So hush little baby don’t you cry (Jo dake omo mi maa sukunmo)


don’t you cry ( maa sukunmo)
don’t you cry ( maa sukunmo)
don’t you cry ( maa sukunmo)
