It seems that America and most other popular countries are preparing to get vaccinated and open back up. Some countries are still feeling the bite of the pandemic, and it looks like Covid-19 may be sticking around. However, musicians around the globe are still trying to climb above the surface and get heard in the competitive Independent market.
Let’s take a deep dive into some global talents, that are making strides post pandemic, and who are not allowing Covid-19 to stop them from banging out the music.
Zutyladon, (Elom Izuchukwu Paul) is a fast-rising, award winning Afrobeat music artist from Lagos, Nigeria. He is a young, vibrant, multi-talented entertainer that can be found just about anywhere on social media. He makes sure he lets us know all about everything he has to offer in the industry.
If Zutyladon is not hosting big carnivals in Africa, he is out producing videos and making new music. He is a graduate of Applied Microbiology at Ebonyi State University. He has a long list of big stage performances with superstars such as Runtown, Zoro de Swagbag, ILLBliss Oga Boss, Small Doctor, Tony Tetuila and many other hot African acts.
His first studio recorded Superman, which was recorded in 2012, has been performed in many events in the southeast. This song is what launched him onto the music scene; it was widely accepted and was doing quite well.
He does have an official released song called Igbadun, which came out in 2016. Every year he hosts the biggest carnival in the southeastern part of Nigeria, (told you this kid is multi-tasked), called Ngboejeogu Deejhe Carnival.
Being based in Nigeria, this young man has faced many challenges, just like his American counterparts. He does keep in touch with many American talents and producers, in hopes of one day coming back and putting a stamp on the market.
Zutyladon is set to release his first debut album in August 2021, so he wants his fan to look out for that. As he struggles to move ahead past the Covid-19 situation in Nigeria, he tries not to allow it to keep him from losing focus on his impact to the entertainment scene in his country.
His Facebook, Instagram and Twitter handle is @zutyladon.
