TEMITAYO GEORGE SET TO RELEASE SECOND ALBUM
By Sam Eyoboka
NOT many Nigerians know that ebony black Temitayo George who emerged 2006 second runners-up at the West African Idols had nursed a childhood dream of becoming a world class performer in the mould of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson.
According to the sultry singer, as early as 9, she had nursed the dream of being a performer; 'at birthday parties I was fond of taking the centre stage, dancing and singing with friends. I believed that one day I was going to perform on a big stage like my idols Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson with lots of adoring fans.'
The 2006 West African Idols provided her first break into the international arena, but certainly it was just a stepping stone as she is currently perfecting plans to launch a follow-up to her 12-tracker debut titled, Love Revealed produced by Edmond Benson, Mosadoluwa Adegboye, Wale Oni and Cobhams Asoquo.
The youthful singer who took the industry by storm in 2006 by her electrifying performance at the 2006 edition of West African Idols, is already planning to launch her real commercial work after the release of her Love Revealed which she dedicated to the Little Saints in her mother's Little Saints Orphanage.
Temitayo, who described her brand of music as Inspirational R&B, told our reporter that her debut which was released during February Joy Night was an attempt towards giving hope to the hopeless, and impact positively on the society, particularly ladies who are having undue challenges in their relationship.
'I sowed it as a seed to the Little Saints Orphanage because most of the songs were inspired by my love for them. So I saw it as another good way of raising funds for their education, maintenance and general well being,' she said, adding that she has began work on her second album.
According to her, the incoming album would also be in the form of gospel music and inspirational works, assuring her numerous fans across the nations of the world to exercise some patience, pointing out that when she eventually comes out later this year they will not be disappointed.
'I have taken my time to make sure that I come out with the right inspirational songs for my fans who, have actually waited so long for this album. So, I was determined to dish out something that will worth the waiting,' Temitayo George said.
