Former, Star Quest Winner and Nigerian Idol Finalist, AJ recently featured in the GTBank 737 advert. Among the twelve selected customers of the bank that was featured in the advert, AJ took the shine as she showcases her singing prowess in the bridge of the popular theme song.
Styled by Jane Micheals, AJ dazzles in a gold and black little dress as she sings… “step into the future today…”
As seen in her blog, AJ recounts her GTbank 737 Moments, an experience she says she always wanted to replay.
“Whoa! Oh my . . . ! Wow!” I kept screaming as I walked into the studio. My eyes were already getting wet from the sudden outburst of emotions. I tilted my head backward occasionally to stop the tears from rolling down. I bet the other participants were as overwhelmed as I was, having ace music producer and singer, Cobhams Asuquo, welcome us with some magical sounds from his grand piano.
As a singer, I’ve always wanted to do an advert for a reputable brand, I never knew Guaranty Trust Bank would be my first major, and Cobhams Asuquo would be the producer. Time spent with Cobby was very entertaining. He familiarized us effortlessly, taught us the popular 737 theme song, and guided us through the recording — one of the best studio sessions I’ve had in a while.
The next day was preeminent. It was my birthday coupled with the big shoot of the 737 Moments Music Video. Being styled by a celebrity designer is not something you get every day, especially when a Bank is footing the bill. So I made sure I took enough photographs in my gorgeous costume just to tantalize my social media followers. Obviously, Jane Michael did justice to my petite figure with the little black and gold dress she adorned me with, making the rest of the evening a delight for me.
We had so much fun during the video shoot and didn’t notice 8 hours had slipped by until Clarence Peters, the director called it a wrap. Did I forget to mention my surprise birthday moments? What an experience!”
