Nigerian pop star Iyanya has teamed up with Afrobeats sensation BNXN to release a new single titled ‘Sinner’. Iyanya has been in the music industry for a while and is known for his hit songs like ‘Kukere’, which brought a sensual edge to Afrobeats. He has since established himself as one of the industry’s heartthrobs, and his comeback last year with the EP ‘6th Wave’ was well received.
The latest offering from Iyanya is a collaboration with BNXN, and the duo delivers a mid-tempo, sensual record that speaks to the desires inspired by a temptress. BNXN, who hails from the Ibibio tribe, sings in his native language, while Iyanya switches between Yoruba and Pidgin, giving the song a familiar melody. The song was meticulously crafted under the creative direction of his frequent collaborator, the ingenious producer Shugavybz.
Interestingly, Iyanya has been making headlines lately for his whirlwind romance with a concertgoer whom he met while performing at Davido’s Timeless Concert in Lagos. While ‘Sinner’ might not necessarily be inspired by his newfound love interest, the publicity generated by the events has built up to the song’s release, and Iyanya will be hoping to divert this interest to his latest record.
As his third musical endeavour for the year 2023, “Sinner” serves as a seamless continuation of Iyanya’s artistic journey, following the release of his previously released opus, “Plan.” With the help of BNXN, he delivers a captivating composition that is sure to delight fans and music lovers alike.
