Amaikah writes her own songs – from personal experiences and events in her immediate environment. She is currently completing work on her debut album, but already a few of her songs are ruling the airwaves. ‘Moonlight Tales´ is a fine attempt to recapture the happy, peaceful and unforgettable days, when children gathered around an elder storyteller under a tree, with the moonlight as a calming blanket around them. This song leaves you with a bitter-sweet feeling of nostalgia.
She also tapped into her experience as a wife and mother to pen the lyrics of the soul-searching ‘Body Magic’. ‘Oro Ife’, rendered in Yoruba, is an Afro-Rock song that is set to be a club and wedding favourite. However, the swinging, sultry ‘Rainy Night In Lagos’ has all the trappings of a great song. It is a fusion of calypso, merengue, Afro-jazz, soul and rock. Having worked with different producers - Georgee, Master Kraft and Tkey among others - one can appreciate her diverse collection of timeless beats.
On stage, the laidback mother of three takes on a vibrant persona. Her energy is matched only by her vocal prowess, and left many audiences gasping for breath and asking for an encore. She loves to dance and play the drum!
At different times, under the platform of Eboni Band, she has shared the stage with Tuface Idibia, P-Square, D’Banj and Banky W. She has also sang alonside Waje, Tiwa Savage, Timaya, Lami and the Ghanaian reggae star, Samini. She looks forward to collaborating internationally with India Arie, Alicia Keys and Mary J. Blige. Her soul sisters. Regrettably, she would have loved to work with the late Miriam Makeba.
In 2009, she got a whopping five nominations at the Nigerian Music Video Awards. Though she did not win, it is a matter of time before music lovers come in contact with this amazing musical talent, whose songs have the ability to touch every life of every age and strata.
She has concluded plans to stage a concert, where various artistes will come together and do a peace song. This effort stems from the unabated violence and unrest in various parts of Nigeria and Africa.
She is under the management of N-tyze Entertainment, an outfit poised to push her talent with all their resources to the highest height attainable.
