    The passion and energy embedded in Ayo’s content and performance presence commands attention. Recently, he opened for Talib Kweli at the legendary J.Dilla's tribute hosted by Jairobi of A Tribe Called Quest. He served on a panel with Lupe Fiasco, interviewed Russell Simmons for MTV and went on a successful European tour last year. He has also graced the legendary Apollo theater stage and featured at SXSW, where he opened for Gyptian. 

    Ayo is a proponent of using his artistic platform as an avenue for social action; he organized a benefit for the kidnapped Nigerian girls and recently performed with his band to raise funds for children affected by contaminated lead water in Flint. His write-up as a Nigerian immigrant growing up in Flint juxtaposed with the water crisis, was recently featured in Huffington Post.

    Primarily New York City based, Ayo plays with his own live band and dancers who move in a mesh of afro-beats/pop, modern, house, hip-hop and ballet dance styles.
