Iyanya Stars In 'Away'

Iyanya stars in the dance video for "Away," shot in London by director Sesan Ogunro.


Back in January Nigerian club crooner Iyanya hit us with another one for the waist. Produced by Naija hitmaker Masterkraft, mid-tempo scorcher "Away" is the second single off Iyanya's forthcoming third studio release.
