AT's Artist Profile
Question: what do lyricist extraordinaire Mode9,flame spittin’ m.c O.D, the spectacular Terry tha Rapman, controversial rapper B.O.U.Q.U.I, the ferocious Pherowshuz, super producer Jamix, the phenomenal hip-hop collective SWATROOT and the "mayor" 6 FOOT PLUS all have in common?
Answer: they have ALL hired the writing/vocal skills of the force known as A.T! He has at one point or another featured either as a vocalist, rapper, backup & hype man for the above mentioned artistes, on stage and /or in the studio.
According to many, Ayuba Tete , a.k.a, A.T is one of the most intelligent singers/songwriters around and coupled with his natural talent for singing and harmonizing,it has made him a well sought after back-up vocalist and ghostwriter (rap and RnB)
He has 12 years of professional stage performance under his belt, over two hundred self written songs (wanna buy some?) as well as experience and qualification as a painter, graphic /graffiti artist (his works have been featured in the SOUND CITY BLAST MAGAZINE), and most recently, photography. He has also had two phenomenal singles (though extremely overlooked, no thanks to the shabby Nigerian music industry structure). In 2004, his first single, "which one…?" made it to number 1 at the MTN top 10, and in 2006, his new single , "its all good" repeated the same feat of his first by topping the charts in all the radio stations that played it. For instance, “its all good” was on the COOL F.M top ten officially for 2 months! in 2007,he came FIRST RUNNER UP in a national songwriting competition to commemorate the 30th year anniversary of Abuja,the national capital.His songwriting skills have led him to work with many artists some of which include the TEHILLAH COMPANY CHOIR,TONY ONE WEEK,and the legendary area father himself;CHARLY BOY!
He also wrote and performed the song for the new B.A.T promotion,"welcome to london"
