Perhaps their most popular song, 'Olufunmi' was a household hit that announced Styl Plus' entrance into the Nigerian music industry. 2 decades later, the song continues to get plays on digital streaming platforms in a testament to its timelessness.

Styl Plus showcased impressive versatility in their music and 'Drive Me Crazy' is a brilliant love song that mirrors the RnB and hip-hop blend that dominated the American soundscape at the time.

Through an exciting combination of English and Yoruba, Styl Plus created a sensational love song that dominated speakers around the country and solidified the band's lover boy brand.

Styl Plus released 'Back and Better' in 2008 four years after the release of their debut album. 'Four Years' announced their return and reminded listeners of their hitmaking prowess.

While Styl Plus is famous for their love songs, they also made music that captured the everyday experiences of the average Nigerian. 'Iya Basira' is one such record as the single comically tells the story of a young man's obsession with a roadside restaurant.

This is one of the tracks on their sophomore album 'Back & Better' which rolled back the years and showcased their abilities to make sensational RnB love cuts.

Styl Plus made its debut at a point when Nigerian mainstream acts went out of their way to make music with a national outlook. On 'Hadiza', Styl Plus deployed Hausa in crafting a heartfelt single.
