Janelia- Love Song in Yoruba

Very nice video and sweet tune from U.S based singer- songwriter Janelia,This is a love song in Yoruba with a great melody  taken from her new album Nigeria 'Ti Ti Lai Lai '  released earlier this year.

Janelia who is currently based in Baltimore U.S.A grew up in the Nigerian city of Ibadan and started singing from a very early age in her local church choir before going on to sing professionally while in college she lists her influences from a wide range of artists and music genres the likes of Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Sade, Babara Streisand and so on.  

She has a strong attraction for love songs and ballads and this is reflected in her music which has been  described as a blend of West African sounds with an urban feel,  her songs are mainly sang in English but also fused with choruses and words in Yoruba her first language. 

To date Janelia has been getting thousand of views and great reviews of her videos on YouTube and  is currently planning to got on national tour of America  and also hopes to tour Africa, UK and Australia in the near future.
