With his songs 'Kukere', 'Your Waist' and 'Flavour' on constant repeat in clubs worldwide and on the radio all across Africa and the UK, one of Africa's fastest rising stars - Iyanya is set to tear up the stage in the UK!
Iyanya has already released his first studio album 'Iyanya Vs Desire' in Nigeria and has taken it to the States where he's currently touring, Iyanya will now bring the tour and album to the UK.
Iyanya, the co-owner of the Made Men Music Group, also known as "Triple MG" became a popular force within the Nigerian music scene in 2012, when he release his hit single Kukere, with over seven million views on YouTube. He went to release his second successful single 'Your Waist', which is still heard in many clubs today.
The 'Sexy Mama' singer will be headlining his own album launch concert in the UK at London's IndigO2 and at Manchester's HMV Ritz this coming June. The album launch concert is organised by cokobar.com, the same team behind Wizkid's sold out gig at the HMV Apollo in 2012.
The concerts are expected to be a full house and both sold-out. One of London's highly rated and favourite African comedians - Eddie Kadi will host Iyanya at both venues with performances from Iyanya's Triple MG label mate - Emma Nyra and a few special guests.
