Tay’s new song “Video Star” is 80s nostalgia

Revive old romantic feels

When Tay Iwar announced that he would be opening for Asa at her Lagos concert, fans were pretty excited because it proved that Tay’s neo-soul sound was finally getting him recognition in the mainstream. The performance was eventually followed by the announcement of his deal with Universal Studios, hinting at the potentially big plans he has in store for the coming year. His first single for the year, “Video Star” is the first release under the label and it fans will be pleased to know that he stays true to his original sound.


“Video Star” features synthesizer melody, drum machine rhythms, and a percussion sound that reminds of 80s RnB. Tay’s vocals surf through the self-produced beat as he sings “You’re Moving Too Fast, Like A Video Star” about a woman he can’t keep up with.
