Happy birthday to the charming and handsome Nigerian musician Iyanya who is celebrating his 32nd birthday anniversary today.
Iyanya was born in Calabar, Cross River state and he immediately gained national fame when he won the inaugural reality music talent competition MTN Project Fame in 2008. Unlike the other competitors from the event, Iyanya quickly claimed airplay when he released the debut studio album My Story in 2009.

He would gain mainstream popularity with the release of the hit single “Kukere” which went on to top radio charts for several weeks and received heavy rotation on the radio. He would go on to release other major hit singles such as “Ur waist” “Flavour” and feature Wizkid on another exceptional song “sexy mama”.
Iyanya was nominated for several awards and would eventually win the Artist of the year at the 2013 Headies Award. He also made a cameo appearance in the MTV sponsored television series Shuga where he performed.
We celebrate Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk today and we wish him more success in his music career.
