Ladies can once again look forward to more serenading on the dance floor as another R&B singer, Saint Paul signed on to Cross Roads Records is set to take the Nigerian music industry by a storm.
Saint Paul whose full name is Osayande Paul Ero was one of the artistes that gave the audience an unforgettable entertainment experience at the Benin version of the last Rhythm unplugged. He hails from Benin in Edo state and has practically lived all his life there. Presently studying Sociology at the University of Benin, Saint Paul says combining music and school has not been easy but his interest in school and passion for music has made things easier.
Saint Paulâ€™s 11 track album featuring various genres of music and songs like â€˜fly Boyâ€™, â€˜what I know nowâ€™, â€˜Baby Girlâ€™ and others is set to be released in February in Benin. Also, a video for the song ”What I Know Now” is also expected to be released in February.
The sensational singer and drummer when asked how he intends to make his mark in the busy Nigerian music industry â€˜Saint Paulâ€™ said, â€˜making a mark is not supposed to be difficult if the artist is good and creative. I think I am good and also very creative; moreover the sky is big enough for all kinds of birds to fly, so I think there is enough room for me.
Orobosa Adetokunbo Ero, MD Cross Roads Records who happens to be the brother of the artiste while speaking on why he chose to sign up Saint Paul on his record label said â€˜most people think I signed him only because he is my brother, but that is not true. I have watched him sing all through his life, he lives and breathes music and to top it all he is talented. So what business oriented person would not want to sign up an artiste like thatâ€™?
