MUSIC XV: OMOLARA'S "BE LIKE YOURS"

Friday, October 9, 2009

I heard this song sometime ago at one of my favorite haunts - Notjustok.com. The song, "Be Like Yours" is by Omolara Ayodele and has a neosoul, jazz vibe to it. She was born in Lagos State and received a degree in Philosophy from the University of Ibadan. Omolara has featured MI on another track "Tonight".

According to her Facebook Fan page, she mentions Lauryn Hill, Brandy, Sade and Mariah Carey as some of her influences, and that is evident from the moment she begins to sing. I particularly like the smooth harmony employed in the chorus section and am impressed by her clear vocals and lyrics. Her video is simple and highlights the quality of the song she sings.

Enjoy.
