  • Styl Plus officially splits as Tunde goes solo, picks new stage name (See Reason)
  • Ultimatetimes TV has learnt that Styl Plus has officially split as lead vocalist of the Popular music group, Tunde Akinsanmi, has left the band in pursuit of a solo career in music industry.

    Tunde made the announcement on Thursday at
    a news conference in Abuja. He said he no longer wished to be known on stage as Tunde Styl Plus, but Tunde T Dot as he disclosed that he was now signed onto PEC records in solo capacity.

    According to him, the move to change the name was based on the need to pick a name that would reflect his new direction as a solo entity in entertainment.

    “I have never really had a stage name. It has always been ‘Tunde Styl Plus’ which obviously was because I was part of a group. So, going forward, I would like to be referred to as Tunde T Dot,” he said.

    Explaining his reason for dumping the award-
    winning Styl Plus, Tunde said:

    “I stopped performing with Shifi and Zeal (of Styl Plus) in 2012 over lots of disagreements back then. It was such that we no longer talked to each other. Over the years, we have come to terms with our new positions.”

    He, however, assured his fans that his going solo does not foreclose the possibility of working with his former band mates, albeit in a new arrangement.

    All that ‘beef’ (quarrel) has been quashed. We are looking at the possibility of a reunion in the future in what may be described as a super group.”

    “For now, I will be releasing my new single titled: ‘African Lady’. The video has been shot and it would be premiered next week. An album is in sight which would come later in 2019.”

    Styl plus was among the popular music group in Nigeria dating back from 199s. The group which comprises of four persons has win so many awards during its active years. The group Styl-Plus is a Nigerian gospel and pop musical group / quartet.
