Introducing CY Dieyi (CY, short for Cynthia) – Nigeria’s own Adele – a remarkable song writer/vocalist and her debut single One day. Electrifying being the one of the words to describe her vocal performance and Wow to the skillfulness with which she delivered every line, One day will definitely capture your interest for start to finish.
One day is a fusion of soul and RnB blended with afro flavor, inspiring its listeners, and also reminding us about karma… what goes around comes around, she could be referring to shady politicians, swindlers and basically anyone that step on others to get what they want. If music with meaning is what you prefer, the CY Dieyi would be a name constantly in your lips after listening to One day.
