Most viewed article on The Guardian website! For two days no less!

The guardian top red story

 

Niyi was asked to write an article describing his first year at Cambridge for The Guardian newspaper, and it got a whole double page spread! Once it was put on the website, it was a slow burner, but it eventually went viral (around the world no less!) on Twitter and Facebook. The article was tweeted by Labour MP Diane Abbott, and journalist Mariella Frostrup (who said it was the best review she had ever had, even though Niyi said he hated her..), and it eventually became the most read article on the website. The Guardian kindly bumped it up to the main article on the front page, and it remained the most read for two days. Quite stellar I think!

Here's another screen grab, just coz we're vain like that (and v proud!):

Niyi confirmed for San Miguel commercial

Niyi San Miguel

Niyi will be making a cameo appearance in the San Miguel's 2011 commercial!

It was filmed outside the newly renovated St Paul's Cathedral in London on Friday and Niyi had these words to say on the campaign:
"With social networking, the world is definitely getting smaller. When I play in Spain I am still so surprised when people know the lyrics to my old songs. I love the international feel of this new San Miguel advert, and I am happy they chose me to be the London personality."
As soon as the full advert and additional interview material is broadcast we will post it up on here, so check back soon.

NIYI
"JUNGLE FEVER"
Out 4th January 2009

Niyi’s back! The multi-tasking and talented one-man musician, DJ, club promoter, fashionista and general boy-about-town releases his six track EP ‘Jungle Fever’ on his own label Holloway Hit Factory on 4th January.

Since his last single ‘Poached Eggs’/’I Love You All’, Niyi’s been a busy boy. He was recently featured in a five-page shoot for Clash magazine’s October issue, which is out now. He also ran his hugely popular weekly club night ‘I Heart Niyi’ at Punk in Soho for a year, which was graced each week with the crème de la crème of the fashion and music world (Lady Gaga performed live last year as part of London Fashion Week and Calvin Harris, Little Boots and Golden Silvers have all DJed). Niyi no longer runs the club night but has been busy causing mayhem on the decks at the likes of this year’s Glastonbury, Reading, Offset, Field Day and opening the annual fashion fair Bread and Butter in Barcelona.

Despite Niyi not owning a TV for more than eight years, if you watched last year’s ‘Big Brother’s Little Brother’ – you would have seen him on there too as one of the show’s regular contributor.

It’s hard to sum up Niyi. The ex Central St. Martin students’ musical repertoire is refreshingly unpredictable. A softly-spoken “rapper”, Niyi cannot be lumped into existing categories and so forges his own genre-bending music which is represented on ‘Jungle Fever’. Other themes on this bizarre musical wonderland include: clean work surfaces, reclaiming his “bump”, Great Britain and Dirty Girls. Sounds crazy? You’d have to check it out to get your head around it.

"Jungle Fever is a about sexual passions. I’ve tried to explore this theme throughout the three tracks with different takes on it which can all be interpreted differently by the listener.” Niyi

TRACKLISTING:

1. Dirty Dirty Girl

2. Bump Back

3. Jungle Fever

4. Bump Back (Raven Remix)

5. Bump Back (Dexplicit Remix)

6. Bump Back (Acapella)

From London to Ireland to NYC to Berlin...

niyi

Some of the best DJ's and Producers around have had a hand in this one of a kind remix package. Niyi's 'Ameilia' (myspace.com/niyi) was one of 2008's most original and raw tracks, listed on numerous 'Best of 2008' lists.

DJ Wool (myspace.com/djwool) (half of Indie Dance Band The Glass) treats us to an Electro Tech mix that will keep them dancing in to the early hours. Ben Mono (myspace.com/benmono) has created a funk monster. Cobra Krames (myspace.com/djkrames) does it b-more style like no one else can and Ben White (http://www.myspace.com/benwhitedj)(only 17 years old) has had a go at it and came out with a massive peak time banger.

Its been a long process to get all of these players together, three of Awesome agency's bigest names, DJ WOOL, COBRA KRAMES and NIYI are represented as well as the magnificent king of german funk BEN MONO, also a member of Munk (Gomma). It doesn't get much better than that right now One Time!!!

For your pleasure from Awesome Agency (myspace.com/awesomeagency)

"Very impressed. Its taking that old-school acid-house Gypsy woman vibe and putting it through the filters of todays cool kids" Larry Tee

"'I love DJ Wool’s remix of Niyi, Sharp beats and a punchy bassline that suddenly gets all soulful when the vocal drops, magical!" Dominique Keegan, Plant Music
