Alex Bruce releases new single

R&B SINGER Alex Bruce has released a new song “Ayoko Pa,” produced by frequent collaborator Cursebox. “It’s a song that expresses my stand on not being ready for a commitment,” the 15-year-old singer-rapper said in a statement. “It’s just that I’m too young to enter into a relationship that would easily fizzle out.” The release of “Ayoko Pa” is accompanied by a music video starring rising rapper Benedic Fragata and TikTok personalities Yvon and Achi. “Ayoko Pa” is available on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Entertainment.
