"Goya Menor in Ameno Amapiano Remix with David Guetta, Zlatan"

Fast-rising artiste, Goya Menor, has said his December viral hit, Ameno Amapaino, now has a remix with the popular French singer, David Guetta. The hitmaker disclosed this in a statement he issued early last week. In the statement, he said, “the Ameno Amapiano remix with Guetta is ready, and there are three other versions of it.”

While saying his upcoming Extended Play (EP) will feature some Nigerian artistes, Goya revealed, “the biggest project on my EP is the Ameno Amapiano remix with Guetta, then Zlatan, Magnito and Zoro, called the Wazobia remix. The concept is to give the song a new essence that people would love while covering the three major ethnic groups in the country.”

Six months after its release, Tik-Tok recognised its huge impact in the creative industry with over 4.7 million video creations globally and 9.5 billion views on its #amenoAmapianoRemix challenge on the same platform.

During the period, it topped the Apple Music Charts in several countries such as Thailand, Uganda, South Africa, Thailand, Ghana, Sweden, Kenya, Nigeria and more.

“The remix with Guetta is just one. I have more international collaborations with great acts like Eric Levi and Kyera. I’ve reached out to more international acts from France, US, and UK. It’s not just a Goya Menor thing anymore, but a global phenomenon,” Goya said.

“You already know the original and what it sounds like. The remix is definitely far from the original, which promises to be better and bigger than what it used to be. The EP is still in process, and we are taking our time. It will be dropped, strategically.”

He further announced his distribution deal with Sony Music Germany, which is preceding his tour into the United Kingdom and Europe. - The Guardian (Kyera is mentioned in 5th paragraph)

"Music Artist Kyera Slays Her Debut Single "Passion" Featuring Music Icons Carlos Santana and Narada Michael Walden"

"Passion" is in Rotation at iHeartRadio stations on 105.1FM in Greater New York, 103.5FM in Greater Miami and 102.1FM in Greater Philadelphia

"Passion" is my anthem to empower people to be courageous and believe in themselves.”— KyeraNEW YORK, NY, USA, April 5, 2018 / -- You might say that Kyera, a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist, is a unicorn in the music world. Her long, flowing, natural wavy hair, supermodel height, athletic body and "no nonsense" approach to life will command your attention. Kyera's magical energy combined with a deep, haunting, beautiful voice will reach the depths of your soul and take a strong hold of your ears.

A recent transplant from Hollywood, California to New York City, Kyera comes out into the spotlight with the debut of her single "Passion" on iHeartRadio stations 105.1FM in Greater New York, 103.5FM in Greater Miami and 102.1FM in Greater Philadelphia areas.

The studio release was produced by Grammy Award-Winning Mega Producer Narada Michael Walden and features multiple award-winner guitarist and international icon Carlos Santana's legendary musical signature on Kyera's electrifying single.

"Kyera reminds me of the incomparable Nina Simone, "The High Priestess of Soul," said Walden. "She has a distinct sound, look, and delivers timeless music." Kyera counts Simone as one of her influencers, along with Sia, Queen, David Bowie, and Tracy Chapman.

"Ms. Simone was really outspoken and didn't play around, neither does Kyera," said Walden. "We are not used to hearing Nina Simone live, we are not used to hearing that kind of low voice with such natural vibrato like Kyera's and it's wonderful."

Who knew that Kyera's unwavering passion for music and unique sound would lead her on a mystical journey across the country- from New York to Northern California - onto the stomping grounds of Walden, the hit maker.

"My introduction to Narada happened through Entertainment Consultant and Music Producer Raffles Van Exel," said Kyera. "I recorded my song on my iPhone and sent it to Narada, hoping he would like it." Her unique vocals slayed the song. A well-rounded musician, she plays the clarinet, bassoon, piano, and guitar.

"It's her vibe, her music and lyrics that breathes life into her sound made for the world to hear," said Van Exel whose circle of close-knit friends have included musical giants (past) Prince, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston; and (present) George Lopez, Elton John, Chaka Khan, just to name a few. "Kyera is a breath of fresh air."

"With my music and performance, my intention is the same; to reach out, grab you and indulge your emotions... your heart... you," explained Kyera. "My music ranges from simple to epic, from country to contemporary imbued with Latin strumming and some tribal influences."

That said. It was time to take her skills to the next level. "My life didn't truly start, until I started singing the songs in my heart," proclaims Kyera.

"It is an interesting experience because right now I am living a dream, and yet it feels like it was supposed to be," said Kyera. "I don't have a fluttering feeling that I have to hold on to this because I am going to lose it. I feel I have created a new norm that I am stepping into and it feels very comfortable."

Walden has an impressive 57 number one hits and produced for superstars like Aretha Franklin; Vesta Williams; Al Jarreau; George Benson; Steve Winwood; Phyllis Hyman; Stacy Lattisaw; Al Green; Shanice Wilson; Ray Charles; Diana Ross; Gladys Knight; Tevin Campbell; Angela Bofill; Natalie Cole; Elton John & Kiki Dee; Eddie Murphy; Pointer Sisters; Sister Sledge; Sheena Easton; The Temptations; Whitney Houston; Mariah Carey; and more.

"I am very aware of the magnitude of that new level from which I stepped onto from where I was," said Kyera. "I feel I have always been at that magnitude but the timing wasn't right." She says that everything in her life is now aligned including the purpose of her life and everyone around her.

"My next steps in my music career are: revisiting the old which I may or may not do, creating the new Kyera and forging more collaborations," she said. "My success is a reality."

Kyera shares the inspiration behind her song,"Passion."

The lyrics of "Passion" carries the message much like an anthem to empower people to be courageous and believe in themselves. The track, composed by Walden, is powerful and evokes a sound made to fill up big spaces and ascend to the universe from an amphitheater such as the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California.

The production of her single is nothing short of what the power of musical geniuses can accomplish and shoot Kyera to new heights in the music industry.

"Kyera's lyrics are on point," said Santana, who has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, among his many accolades, Santana has won 10 GRAMMY® Awards, including a record-tying nine for a single project, 1999's Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for "Smooth") as well as three Latin GRAMMY's.

"You will only achieve happiness if you are passionate about what you are doing," explained Kyera. "People don't know that they are missing out of life because they are not tuned into that."

Kyera's mantra is "I'm not going to apologize for my greatness."

"Kyera Debut Single "Passion" Featuring Music Legend Carlos Santana Hits the Airwaves and All Digital Platforms"

Rafflelution Releases New Artist Kyera's Breathtaking Single "Passion" on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play, and Amazon

Passion captures the essence of empowerment for humanity and not letting anything stand between you and your passion in life.”— Kyera, the singer and songwriter for Passion.NEW YORK CITY, NY, USA, April 26, 2018 / -- Rafflelution announced today that its new artist Kyera's debut single, "Passion," is available for purchase on all digital platforms: Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play, and Amazon. The single features music legend Carlos Santana and producers award-winning Narada Michael Walden and Raffles Van Exel.

"Passion captures the essence of empowerment for humanity and not letting anything stand between you and your passion in life," said Kyera who wrote the touching lyrics. "I don't apologize for my greatness and no one ever should." Santana's electrifying sounds matched the power of Kyera's voice.

"We wanted the diverse message of Passion to be an important influence in the #MeToo movement as a mantra about standing in your truth and pursuing your passion while keeping your integrity," said Van Exel, Kyera's manager. "Carlos Santana's contribution to the spirited song gives it a rock and roll feel and giving it a cross over sound."

In a recent radio interview on iHeart RUSA radio show with Andrey and Zoya, the only syndicated Russian-language FM HD station in the United States, Kyera talks about her accidental singing journey. "Music has been a big part of my life," she said. "I am a composer by nature." She explained that listening to her environment allows her to create music from anything.

"Initially, I never considered myself as a singer until a dear friend, a fashion designer, heard me singing and became teary eyed from the beauty of my voice," said Kyera. "She said you have something extraordinary, you should sing your own songs." I debuted as a vocalist at her fashion show and found my passion for singing.

"I feel the right producer can duplicate what your music is about and help flow power through your voice," she said.

"When Raffles, a family friend and music producer heard my voice, he knew what to do and connected me with hit maker Narada Michael Walden," recalled Kyera. "This awesome producer was struck by my voice and music and was immediately on board."

Van Exel took the song to a higher level by bringing Santana on board to collaborate on Passion. As they say, the rest is history for Kyera's fast-rising music career.

Born and raised in Cleveland Ohio, Kyera has persisted in carving out a life for herself as an artist. Although she had success as a TV writer in Hollywood, her heart and passion has always been in music, so she took a leap of faith to pursue her dream.  Her perseverance, unique voice and trust in herself landed her in collaborations with award-winning producers and artists like the legend, Carlos Santana, who is featured on her rock anthem “Passion.” 

Kyera has now teamed up with Nigerian rapper, Goya Menor, who’s viral sensation “Ameno Amapiano Nektunez Remix" has been viewed by 9.7 billion people; “You want to bomba? You want to chill with the big boys?”  Kyera and Goya Menor’s creative synergy was apparent from the start as they vibed on each other’s artistry.  Their mutual admiration sparked a new “Passion Amapiano Remix.”  

This fresh afro-beat remix is a re-envisioned version of Kyera and Santana's original rock anthem, “Passion.”   For Kyera, what makes this collaboration particularly special is the bridging of two demographics.  Carlos Santana is iconic and the younger generation deserve to be exposed to his musical genius.  Similarly, Goya Menor is a lyrical prodigy who’s artistry has the power to impact all generations. 

This remix evokes a sound made to permeate large spaces and ascend to the universe. Kyera’s smoky rumbling voice, Goya Menor’s visceral textured rap and Carlos Santana’s signature guitar interludes weave a savory fabric of connection.   

The merging of these giants aligns with the theme of the new music video, uniting the world with Passion.  Together,  they've created an international stage for “Passion 4 Peace.”  This is one remix you're not going to want to miss.
