11-year old British Nigerian pop singer Mya K is out with her latest single titled “For Now” and the exciting brand new visuals to go with it. Produced by UK-based producer Shabach and taken from Mya K’s forthcoming self-titled E.P, “For Now” is an outstanding Pop song that is sure to leave fans and critics yearning for more from the 11-year old triple threat singer, dancer and actress.
Laced with bass-heavy drum patterns and lush synths which are reminiscent of classic 80’s dance music, “For Now” sees Mya K in her elements as she excellently showcases her singing abilities and burgeoning performance prowess on the track. Visually, that performance prowess is underlined even further as Mya K shows off her dancing skills along with her already established vocal talents to make for a sassy, bubbly and excitingly enthralling performance all around.
Mya K started singing at the tender age of two and has never looked back since. Based in the UK, she realized quite early that her purpose on earth is to touch and affect lives through music. Signed to First Entertainment and currently working on her debut E.P, Mya is already causing a stir in Nigeria with her music. After having released three hugely popular singles in 2011 – “I’ll Survive”, “Superstar” and “Xmas Charity” – which are still enjoying massive airplay on Nigerian radio, Mya K was specially invited to perform at the Calabar Festival by the Cross River State government in December 2011 and was also invited by Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State to perform at a Christmas concert in the same month.
At only eleven year of age, Mya K has performed alongside African A-list stars like P-Square, Julius Agwu and Jim Iyke as well as graced the stage at prestigious UK venues such as the Beckenham Festival and Bloomsberry Theatre while winning several accolades along the way such as the Gazelle Trophy for poetry and prose in 2010, two scholarships from London’s Herbert Justice Academy of Performance Arts and Kent College Pembery respectively and a Merit in ISTD Olympic award earlier this year. But that is not all; Mya K is deeply involved in charity activities, determined to be a voice for the voiceless and in December 2011, launched The Pink Petal Charity Foundation to tackle issues of child trafficking and protection of child rights.
