This fabulous, talented lady is a soul crooner and I believe a mixture of Sade and India.Arie, although as we all know they hold their own. She is of Nigerian and Romanian birth. Ayọ (born as Joy Olasunmibo Ogunmakin near Cologne, Germany) is an Afro-German singer-songwriter. She uses the Yoruba translation Ayọ or Ayo of her first name Joy. Her debut album Joyful was released in the United States on 20 November 2007 by Interscope Records. She has a beautiful voice and she is skilled in a variety of instruments and I absolutely love her vibe. Check her out.
