Sometimes we have to answer our own S.O.S. Do things for our own Soul. In a era where lyrics aren't the main focus, this singer, Ayo, sings poetically concerning matters of the heart (from what I have heard so far.). Ayo (born as Joy Olasunmibo Ogunmakin on 14 September 1980 in Frechen near Cologne, Germany) is a Nigerian-German singer-songwriter. She uses the Yoruba translation Ayo.
