Nigerian musical icon Iyanya has in a timescale of 10 days release three (3) new song. FREESTYLE with Ice prince featuring was first to be dropped on April 9, 2015, next was YUDALA which features Mystro, Tekno, Selebobo and Basi on April 15, 2015 closely followed by his solo performance APPLAUDISE on April 19, 2015.

In his expression on why he released a three track song in rapid succession, he clearly stated:      
“We are in the business of keeping fans entertained and this is the reason behind the latest efforts you have observed”. He added:

The idea is to ensure that my wonderful fans enjoy the best of Iyanya at all times. Many more releases are in the pipeline and will be made public soon. As for the album, I wish to assure you that this year will be a very big one for my fans.

Yudala is a goodwill song. It is a message of hope to Nigerians and the world at large. You will notice that the release of the song was a strategic initiative for us as it coincided with the successful conclusion of the 2015 elections in Nigeria.

The song appeals to the renewed hope in the new atmosphere of change in our socio-political experience as a nation. In fact, Yudala took the better part of nine months from conceptualization, selection of the featured artistes, recording and eventual release as everything had to be perfect.

You mentioned the quality of the video and I’m sure you must have noticed how different it is from previous efforts. Yudala is a song of hope, a song of prosperity, one of peace and best wishes.

Iyanya, categorically took time to expound the meaning of the word “YUDALA” as a universal language; it is not specific to any ethnic region or locality. Yudala is the new cool. It is a new mode of expressing felicitations. As my manager Ubi Franklin has noted, you won’t be out of place if you welcome your colleague in the office with Yudala.

Very soon, Yudala will be the word children will greet their parents with in the morning. Yudala stands for respect, best wishes, peace of mind, prosperity.

Charity, as they say, begins at home. Yudala is first and foremost, a goodwill song which has the Nigerian experience as its primary focus.

Secondly, it is a song with universal appeal in light of the virtues being espoused in the song. If you understand all three languages used, you will observe that the qualities Yudala represent were mentioned in Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa languages in the song. The Iyanya led trio MMMG trio is indeed a good development
