Do NOT call it a comeback BUT after enthralling us twelve years ago with her critically acclaimed debut album, the Carl Raccah-produced Sahara Nights, for which she was awarded Nigeria's first Gold Record award by MTN Play and Go in 2003, Greek Nigerian Pop star JOJO - formerly known as Joanne - returns with an excellent new single titled "Let's Dance" under her new record label Heavy Tunez Records.

 

Receiving its radio premiere today on the award-winning Rhythm 93.7 FM, "Let's Dance" is a very catch and infectious Pop/Dance record that is sure to lift your spirits and get you in the mood for good vibrations. With genuine and heartfelt lyrics that call for peace, love and unity in our nation Nigeria - especially as we presently face extremely trying times - JOJO makes the conscious effort to remain upbeat and portray a positive and uplifting message on "Let's Dance" without ever coming off as pretentious or gimmicky.

 

Sonically, Heavytunez Records in-house producer Shizzi has provided a simple and exciting Afro Pop musical backdrop laced with lush percussion and drum patterns as well as heavy synths to perfectly complement Jojo's soft, soulful and captivating vocals...

 

All that is left now is for the entire nation to press play and listen to Jojo's "Let's Dance" and to let the song's message which reiterates our strong ethos of positivity and togetherness despite the situation resonate with each and every one of us as we listen!

This song was recorded over a year ago but I do not think it is more relevant to our nation than now. I personally lost 2 close friends and several known people in the Dana aircraft that crashed in Lagos on Sunday the 3rd of June.

The song was written four years before it was recorded. At a point in my life when it was really difficult to make ends meet. Those were days I will walk distances to save N5.00 so to buy a sachet of "pure water" to drink Garri.
