Speaking with members of the U.S. media at his launch held at Eludz Restaurant and Lounge in Brooklyn a seemingly pleased Aidonia said,
“Firstly I have to give thanks to the respective authorities for the reissuance of my visa__ with this in place we are now able to tap into new markets and connect to wider audiences, because as entertainers we know how important it is to stay connected to the fans not just through social media but also having a physical presence in those spaces, hence this current campaign… and it’s a known fact that the U.S. is one of the biggest consumers of our genre of music.”
Elaborating on his U.S. campaign the ‘Run Road’ singer added, “Come July 23 we are going to treat the fans inside Amazura Night Club to a musical feast because they have been waiting patiently for this day and it has finally arrived. So I’m encouraging everyone to go and get their tickets early to avoid the last minute rush.”
Meanwhile, on the local scene Aidonia has been working assiduously in the studios and continues to ride high with the singles “No Man To Mi Spliff“, “Hey Yo” and “Rude Bwoy Ting” the latter has been touted by Billboard selector Boom Boom during a recent airing of TVJ’s Entertainment Report as one of the hottest songs for Summer 2016.

The EP executive produced by famed producer Sean Reid and Warren Bloise of Gedion Soldiers Entertainment features an array of musical emotions taking you on an emotional journey from “Hot Like You” (Seannizle), “Not This Time” (Kheilstone). “Loving You Right” and “Spoon” (Okino “DJ Wav” Thomas and Sean “Seanizzle” Reid), “Feel So Right” (Calli B), “Bicycle” (Tricia “ZJ Sparks & Germaine “Mafy” Clarke to “Lightskin Love” (Sean “Seanizzle” Reid).
“MY EP Love/Lust is a collection of 7 songs that seek to straddle the thin line between two very complex emotions. As individuals at times we tend to confuse the two and it can lead to very disastrous results. So I try to bring the audience to what I feel is going through our minds and our bodies at the time, the different transitions. So from that moment when we meet the person and your heart is struck. There’s a “bang” and it hits you and it feels like that’s everything. From the endorphin that you feel with the physical contact and all the pleasures that come with it. Then you have the big realization, this is it! After the interaction and the intercourse of the true feelings involved. Is it love, is it lust? That’s the big question, that’s the big “Shibang”! And that’s the realization to divide to triumph…you’re in love, or it’s a tragedy..it was all lust...” explained K’Coneil.
