Kaestyle Named Apple Music Up Next Artist In Nigeria
Afrobeats singer-songwriter and producer Kaestyle has been named the newest featured artist on Apple Music’s Up Next artist development program in Nigeria.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Kelvin Ibinabo Oriy AKA Kaestyle tells Apple Music, “You know what they say about ‘luck’ – it’s opportunity meeting preparedness. I have been more than ready and my music has grown since I started doing this. Hopefully I will have more people discover my music through Apple Music’s Up Next, I have seen it make superstars and I’m happy I’m getting a shot!”
Kaestyle, a Port Harcourt native who spent his childhood learning the piano, discovered his passion for music the moment he heard it play. He was captivated by the variety of tunes the piano could generate. Kaestyle’s own brand of Afrobeats, which he first displayed with his first track “Stamina,” is greatly influenced by the golden age of R&B and blends sensuous vocals with street-smart lyrics (2021).
His six-track first EP, “Kae’s Study” (2022), distributed by KayQaad, is a prime example of his forward-thinking Afrobeats sound. It features his most recent groove-inducing, brooding song, “Moving Mad,” as well as the top-charting remix “True Love (ft. Victony).”
Kaestyle will be included on Apple Music’s Nigeria’s Up Next playlist as the newest Up Next talent to be featured in Nigeria. The carefully chosen new and upcoming artists on the Up Next playlist were selected by Apple Music editors from all across the world.
As part of Apple Music’s expanding roster of Up Next Artists from Nigeria, Kaestyle joins Ogranya, Majeed, Khaid, Ninety, Young Jonn, T.I. Blaze, Browny Pondis, Ajebo Hustlers, Jaido P, Wavy The Creator, SGaWD.
