Opening for Babyface is AYO, a German-born artist, the offspring of a Nigerian father who had come to Germany to study in the 1970s (and sometimes worked as a DJ) and a mother who is a gypsy. Her rich cultural background is also reflected in her musical influences. She grew up amidst Pink Floyd and Fela Kuti, the Soul Children and Bob Marley, and many others.
