With an impressive single, ‘Kokoro Ife’ (love bug) which has been receiving massive airplay and sparking up accolades from teeming fans, colleagues and friends; star actor Gabriel Afolayan is one dynamic individual who has deep interest in music.
Managed by studio 6 multimedia limited, Gabriel has been honing his singing skills as far back as when he was a little baptist chorister.
In 1997, he was signed as a backup singer to a studio phynix n Ibadan, Oyo state as well as a one-man ban. He also had a musical group while in the University (University of Ibadan). The son of a late film maker Adeyemi Afolayan and brother to accomplished actors. Kunle and Aremu Afolayan is chanelling every faction of his talent into becoming a well-rounded artiste . Driven not by the need to supplement his acting earnings with music, but mainly by passion for the art; Gabriel isn’t cowed by the presence of established or upcoming artistes; with African soul as his chosen genre of music, the deubutant is rather focused on creating a nitche for himself in the burgeoning industry and breaking more grounds.
