Styl-Plus - Olufunmi #ThrowBackThursdays
The sensational Trio originally a quartet burst into the Nigerian music scene in 2003 with their smash hit single ''Olufunmi'' with an amazing blend of contemporary/Urban R&B and Rap fusion and they won the hearts of all Nigerian ladies with that rare sounds probably filling the vacuum the split of the top Nigerian group ''plantashun boiz'' created.
The Abuja based group who where originally called STYL with founding members: Shifi Emoefe, Tunde Akinsanmi, Yemi Akinwonmi, and Lanre Faneyi. In 1999 Lanre Faneyi died (Blessed memories), and Zeal Onyecheme joined the group which led to the group being renamed Styl-Plus, the Plus signifying the new addition to the group. However, in 2002 Yemi Akinwonmi left the group and the musical band became a trio and went on to create beautiful music and winning numerous awards across Africa including best R&B video at the Channel O Music Awards for ''Call My Name'' in 2005 and a nominee at the coveted KORA Awards.
''Olufunmi'' was the lead single off their EP and they went on to release their début album ''Expressions'' (2006)and a follow up ''Alive''(2012). They have however, gone on to release singles and individual projects in recent times but Styl-Plus still got a hold on us with ''Olufunmi''
