Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/09/2015 -- Halloween is one of the most popular holidays in the world, but for one music star it is even more special: it is his birthday. Nigerian singing sensation Iyanya recently celebrated his birthday on Halloween, and used the occasion to make known his intentions to conquer the American market. The singer and record label owner is planning a major transition to America early next year, and has made his new album Applaudise available to download in the US.

His album Applaudise was released September 19th, 2015, and has seen huge sales in his home country of Nigeria and throughout the whole of Africa, attracting the attention of the international music market. After talks with American producers and promoters, hopes are high for Iyanya to take the US by storm next year.

Already Applaudise is receiving plaudits from critics and fans alike, with the Singer and Songwriter creating some of his most ambitious, bombastic hits while also showing a new sensitivity and soulfulness which makes him ideal for the American market, with themes and lyrics drawn from his own unique experiences.

A spokesperson for Iyanya explained, "Inspired by Craig David and R Kelly, Iyanya went on to win Project Fame and has since matured into a powerful artist in his own right, getting more personal and profound in his themes as well as sharpening his business acumen and setting his sights on much bigger goals. This latest announcement is huge, but it has come at the right time for him. He has already achieved so much in Nigeria and wider Africa- it is time for his talent to be discovered by the world, and the US is the place where he can make that happen."
