Marlian Music hot kid Lyta drops a new single titled “Everybody” which relates to life and pleasing society, no matter what you do you can’t satisfy everyone.

Lawal Opeyemi Raimi popularly known by his stage name L-Y-T-A is a Nigerian singer and songwriter. He signed a record deal with YBNL Nation in 2018 but left the label in May 2019. In 2019, Lyta left YBNL Nation, signed a pushing deal with Doro Musik Gang and released the Killer Tunes-produced hit track “Monalisa” on 12 July 2019. Few weeks after the release of “Monalisa”, Davido reached out to Lyta for a possible remix of the buzzing song. Following their agreement, Davido flew Lyta down to Dakar for the remix and video shoot of “Monalisa” which was later released in August, 2019.

The accompanying music video for the remix was directed by Director K, the Remix went further than the original song and gave Lyta more exposure. Later same year he released the Afrobeat track “Worry” also produced by Killertunes.

So far this year 2020 L Y T A has been on the low, we had from him only in the month of May when he released a track for the Islamic fasting period titled “Ramadan” and also “Birthday Wish” later same day to celebrate his Birthday and share his feelings. Months back he got in the News with reports of welcoming his first child and not long after that his recent signing into Marlian Music with Marlian President Naira Marley, done in Naira’s Bedroom made him went viral on social media (Check Here).
