Styl Plus is Alive!


The group STYL was formed in 1997 as a gospel quartet by founding members Shifi Emoefe, Tunde Akinsanmi, Yemi Akinwonmi, and Lanre Faneyi. In 1999 Lanre passed away and Zeal Onyecheme joined the group. The name STYL which was formed by combining the first letters of the first names of the founding members then turned to Styl-Plus, the Plus being used to indicate the new addition to the group. In the year 2001, the group expanded from singing strictly gospel songs, to inspirational and love songs. In 2002 Yemi left the group to pursue another career. In 2003 the group teamed up with Anthony 'T-Jazz' Ukpong and Joseph 'Joey' Ukpong to form their own record label; Styl-Plus Music.


In late October of 2003, under the management of T-jazz and Joey, they released two singles to radio stations . The response was tremendous, and the unprecedented airplay the tracks received fuelled the subsequently massive sales of the Singles on Cd and audiotapes. Based in Abuja, FCT, the group uses its strong vocals and addictive soundtracks to successfully blend together English and Indigenous languages, on their Pop and R&B tracks. The Motto of the group is "Positive-Cultural-International" and this is evident in the positive messages and the noticeable absence of raunchy and profane lyrics, which characterize most R&B groups. The members of the group are all graduates of FUT Akure, and are all bachelors in their twenties.

The group later released a four track compilation which further made them a household name in the country and some major cities in the world. In late February 2006, the group released their first official album titled “Expressions” which was totally sold out and won them Acclaims like the channel O awards and nominations for the KORA awards as the best African R&B act.
The group released their ten track second album Late April 2008 titled “Back and Better” which includes the smash hit singles “Four years” and “I no wan trouble”.

The group has been together for the past eleven years and have been in the main stream musical Industry for four years. Within these four years, STYL-PLUS has toured major cities in the United States of America, Europe, South Africa, Ireland, West Africa and most cities in Nigeria.

The group is back with a new single - ALIVE. It features sunky. Listen and enjoy.
