Tay took a leap and embarked on a journey to reach a new audience while fulfilling the expectations of his long time fans. In 2018, OkayAfrica ranked his songs “Space” & “Sugardaddy” from his 1997 EP fourth on “Songs of the Month” list. His song “Sugardaddy” made the list of OkayAfrica’s Best Nigerian Songs of 2018. Pulse Nigeria also listed him as part of the five Soundcloud artistes you need to pay attention to in 2018.
Within the same year, he got into a distribution agreement with Universal Music Group, Nigeria and released his first video “Video Star”. Then he pushed his sound further with a partnership with Soulection; a record label and independent music platform, radio show, and artist collective, with whom he has been working with for over a year.
