Afrobeat singer, Iyanya is thanking God for a turnaround of his career which had lost its spark but was revived this year, expressing his appreciation to Kizz Daniel for writing the popular song, Like and gifting it to him.
Iyanya also extended his gratitude to notable artists and music executives, including Davido, Don Jazzy and Ubi Franklin for using their respective platforms to promote his music and ensuring that he gets back on his feet to make great music again.
The talented singer surprised his fans with a series of tweets about his hard times in December 2021 and how he changed his fortunes one year later.
He remembers how he begged to perform at two unpaid shows just to be seen yet this was during the festive season. Iyanya only performed in one paid show. Fast forward to 2022, and he is overwhelmed by the number of shows he wakes up to every day.
Speaking about how Franklin changed his game after they reunited, Iyanya said Franklin reminded him of how “we started and we went back to that same plan.”
With three hit singles this year and a new management team, Iyanya said he has to thank God for turning his music career around following the lull it experienced in the last few years.
Iyanya said things have changed as he now wakes up to credit alerts from shows and bookings for the period of December.
He added that he has been booked to perform at 20 events and more for this festive season alone.
“Last year in December, I performed at three shows; one paid and I performed at two for free just to be seen. 2022 December, I wake up every day to credit alerts for shows. I haven’t had this kind of busy December since 2017. 20 plus shows in a month. Grateful,” he wrote.
