Shortly after his Mavin Records collaboration on the hit song Overloading (Overdose) alongside his label mates Ayra Starr, Boy Spyce, Ladipoe and Magixx, Crayon is back with his latest single Ijo (Laba Laba). The Sarz-produced single is a fusion of House, Amapiano and Afropop influences. “Ijo (Laba Laba) is a song intended to drive you to dance – regardless of your current predicament. As colourful and bubbly as a butterfly, this is a song that lifts your spirit and soul.” Crayon says “You should also appreciate the multicultural vibe by singing in multiple languages. This is music that soundtracks a carnival”.
Born and raised in Lagos, Charles Chibueze Chukwu popularly known as Crayon debuted in the Afropop scene in 2019.

Already getting an endorsement from Grammy-Award winner, Wizkid and 2baba, and relentlessly whetting his skills and sound in the studio, Crayon is ready to have one of his biggest years yet.
