His transformation has been phenomenal, from playing xylophone in a group of overdressed but talented young children, he has stayed away from anonymity and carved a successful path for himself as a singer and songwriter. 26-year old Eric Eton, popularly known as Lybra, got involved with music at age seven when his passion was playing xylophone with cultural band, Udo Mariam. But highlife has always inspired him. And playing highlife was all he wanted to do.
Today Lybra has many songs to his name including Account Number and Baby Tomato. But it is the hit single Ekamba, that has enjoyed wide airplay within and outside the country putting Akwa Ibom on the global map. It was included in an international playlist on Boomplay alongside the likes of Tiwa Savage, Wizkid and Drake.
Lybra won the Next Rated Artiste at the 2018 Starzz Awards and has other numerous awards to his name.
