Quick Word with Leony

Michaela Moye

X2 hung out with former House on the Rock chorister, Leony at Body Lawson Studio, Ikeja, Lagos, where he was shooting the video for his new single ‘Shawdy’.

“Shawdy is a love song that I wrote for my girl. I was just trying to express myself on how I feel about her. It’s a positive-love song and you can apply it however you wish to apply it.”

Purists amongst us need not panic! Leony does not describe his work as secular (although his single is called Shawdy): “I just do music. I like to talk about a lot of things. I have a couple of gospel tracks on my album which is coming out soon.”
