Tay Iwar 1997


Tay Iwar, Nigeria’s hidden gem, presents his newest single release with “1997” —a percussion-packed track with mood-driven melodies. The single explores the story of romance in various forms—playfully flirting, needing your space, and desires both good and bad.  Raised in Lagos and Abuja, Tay began creating music at 14. Since then, the writing hasn’t stopped and he’s honed in on crafting songs that effortlessly blend together a timeless R&B sound with Afrobeat influences. Backed behind a variety of rhythmic percussion, Tay takes us on a journey through his memories of past lovers, exercising his vocals to put his emotions into every harmony. "1997" is a glimpse of what’s to come from his debut album being released in November with Soulection.
