Tito Jackson; legendary superstar; older brother to Michael Jackson and one of the original members of the Jacksons, aka Jackson 5, arrived in London today from Japan, in order to do a collaboration with Chinese singing sensation Ayi Jihu, who is signed to Shlepp Records, and the two artists are recording a new song together at London’s Battery Studios. It will be the first time the two have met in the flesh and the first time they have worked together.

Tito, who started the Jackson’s off on their long lasting music legacy by borrowing his father Joe’s guitar at the age of eight, will be not only collaborating with Ayi Jihu, but also with Brazilian recording star Edu Casanova. The two singers will appear on the Brazilian’s song Bola Vex. Ayi, who is a huge fan of Tito’s, has already collaborated with Edu before and she will be the first Chinese artist to ever perform at the Brazilian Carnival where she will be appearing alongside Edu.

This “tri” collaborative effort on Bola Vex will be released by the German Company Storz Media GmbH. Ayi Jihu, who has been called the Chinese Madonna, was introduced to Tito Jackson by his manager Vie Billups and record producer Peter Doc Bielig. Billups is a former recording artist for Decca and part of the group the Flirtations, aka Pearly Gates and Bielig is the producer of Casanova and his song Bola Vex.

Bielig has produced earlier collaborative tracks with Edu and Ayi and he is close friends with Stevie Eagle E, who is Ayi Jihu’s manager. When Bielig and Billups introduced Ayi to Tito the two found that they were singing the same key. Jihu was already excited at the prospect of meeting one of her childhood idols and she said that to record with Tito was a “dream come true.”

Tito Jackson and Ayi Jihu are in Battery Recording Studios in London to work on the new song that is part of Edu Casanova’s Bola Vex. Ayi has been taking China by storm and has a legion of fans across the country and, after her earlier collaboration with Edu, fans in Brazil as well. Jihu moved to the United Kingdom when she was a child and it was in this country that she started her career.

In 2010 the BBC dubbed the performer the “Chinese Madonna of Cambridge” and publicized the fact that since she signed with Shlepp Records in 2007, her first album had gone gold after being downloaded over 100 million times in China.

Ayi Jihu and Tito Jackson meeting for the first time in London
Tito Jackson meets Ayi Jihu for the very first time; legends together.

Ayi Jihu, and her idol, Tito Jackson will record their vocals on the track and also shoot their parts for the song’s promotional music video. The song is due to be released spring this year. Sadly, Edu Casanova was not able to be in London at the same time as his collaborators, but, he plans to link up with Tito and Ayi in Brazil later in the year.

Jihu has already reached legend status by her own efforts and this meeting in London is the first time that she has come “face-to-face” with her “all time idol.” These two legends performing together on Edu Casanova’s track Bola Vex will be an almost historical event in the music world as this new R&B legend works with one of the best known names in the business.

Tito is planning on heading out to China after finishing his U.S.A. commitments to perform live with Ayi Jihu as well as collaborating on more songs with the 30 year-old Chinese Madonna. Tito and Ayi will be in London until January 29 recording their new collaborative song. Peter Doc Bielig and Stevie Eagle E are currently working on the production and remixing of Tito Jackson’s latest album.
