Mu­sic: Tankolowiska springs out with ‘Bo­laji’

Daily Trust - - DIGEST - Text from Nu­rudeen Oye­wole, La­gos

Hit­ting out with his third sin­gle since 2011 when he de­buted, Afro-pop singer, Ishola Olayinka, pop­u­larly known as, “Tankolowiska” now has a new al­bum tagged: ‘Bo­laji’.

A lit­er­ary trans­la­tion of the ti­tle means: “wake with wealth”, pro­duced by the record la­bel, pro­duced by Gospel on de Beatz. Ac­cord­ing to the 31-year-old artiste, the sin­gle is one ef­fort, well fused with sam­ples “rhyming lyrics with sweet melodies and mem­o­rable track”.

“Trust me; every­body wants to wake up with wealth. The song ba­si­cally passes a mes­sage about treat­ing peo­ple with re­spect with­out know­ing their sta­tus. And for me that is hu­mil­ity at its best,” Tankolowiska said.

Be­fore his lat­est work, Tankolowiska has re­leased “Ibadie Nsoro” as well as “Ti­ti­lailai” be­fore col­lab­o­rat­ing with pop star, Olamide in his hit track “Bass line”.

A graduate of Lead City Univer­sity, Ibadan, Tankolowiska also said he is un­daunted with the com­pet­i­tive­ness in the in­dus­try be­cause mu­sic is a pas­sion he re­ally can­not ig­nore.

“The sky is just the spring­board. I am quite op­ti­mistic and I be­lieve my pas­sion for mu­sic will take me be­yond the sky,” he said.
