Prince Bayo is known as the Autistic Prince because he has to deal with autism and ADHD. He has been battling autism and ADHD his entire life. When he performs or is in large crowds his anxiety levels can rise above tolerable levels. “It takes only one thing to not go according to the plan in my head, and I am all over the place.”
However, Prince Bayo rose to the challenge and took command of the stage at Club-M just as the other performers for the G Salvatore Fashion Showcase. Every day that he steps outside of his home, he has to deal with a whole lot more than most. He is an amazing performer.
Prince Bayo is a true royal hailing from the Royal House of Lagos, Offa in Africa and the Clan McMillan in Scotland. He is connected to the most powerful families in the world. He represents several charities around the globe and his passion for music and writing help him deal with his autism and ADHD.
“I get on well with people once they get past my sometimes weird ways, but in general, I do struggle to connect with people. When I go out and I am around a lot of people I have to count how many people are in the room. I need to know exactly how many men or women are around me. It is things like this that I find it hard to control and so often I tend to withdraw into myself and seem distant. This is not the case. I am just fighting hard to control everything that is going on in my head. I was late getting to the G Salvatore Fashion Showcase and the threw me right off. I spoke to Stevie Eagle E about it and he told me I would be fine, that I should just relax and do what I do, so I did, and the show went well. I always feel I could do much better, but I felt I did a good job, and I enjoyed myself as well as meeting all the great artists also performing on the night.”
Prince Bayo performed his new single, “Turning Me On” for the first time. The track will be released later in 2018. He is working on the video for the track and completing the remainder of the album. He hopes it will be ready for summertime.
