Aptly monikered ‘Blown Away’, the single has an acoustic as well as a dance version. Its acoustic version has been described as a track that holds its listeners captive irrespective of their musical preferences. Blown away (acoustic) is a beautiful piece of music with impressive lyrics smoothly delivered on the stirring strums of the guitar played by the artiste himself.
To spice things up, Real Ice recorded a follow-up dance version of the same song with an upbeat tempo and chosed this valentine season as an ideal time to premier the two versions of the song for his fans.
Originally from Nembe in Bayelsa State, Real Ice was born in Warri, Delta state and grew up largely in the oil rich city of Port Harcourt. He started out as a rapper in 2003 with a producer known as DjEbis on Real Life Records.
His first major performance was when he shared a stage with 2face in 2004. With influences from music greats from the West and Africa, like Evanescence, Asa and 2face, the artiste has managed to create a perfect blend of music with his self-generated genre, Afro Tech Music.
He is one of the truely gifted acts currently being pushed by XXXL MGT.
