Awilo Longomba may not be Nigerian, but it seems like we have totally accepted him as one of ours, as he is undoubtedly loved in Naija.
The Congolese singer stole the hearts of many across Africa with his music in 1998, making him one of the most talked about and most played artist of those years. Really, who would throw a party without adding one of tunes to liven things up.
Awilo’s music and videos that featured a lot of energetic waist whining became so viral that you would hear people say ‘dance Awilo’ while referring to almost any dance that involved circular waist movement. Well, our star went of radar for a while but is making his comeback with the release of a video to his latest single captioned ‘Bundelele’.
The veteran musician is also currently on a media tour in Nigeria, and is said to be working with some our hottest artistes including Yemi Alade, Chidinma and more.
