Abiodun, the Nigerian- German singer, releases his single ‘Girl Like You’ on 3 July.

‘Girl like you’ pays homage to women and the inspiration they provide. The song is delivered in a relaxed flowing rhythm, a soothing expression of love, appreciation and pampering. It is a minimalistic afro-symphony with an infectious hook-line placed on groove. Produced by Lagos based Y´Mix, it also premieres a new set of songs for the year 2020 under Abiodun’s Ajazcobeats series.

Abiodun Odukoya is a veteran in the Nigerian/ German music industry. Fufu, his debut album with BANTU (a band that features his brother Ade Odukoya, popularly known as Ade BANTU) was released in 2000.
