Tell us about yourself
I am originally from Nigeria but based in Toronto, I represents the synthesis of R'n'B/Soul & Afrobeats. In early 2018, I began creating the next wave of releases which included songs such as “Better”, "Control Me" & "Queen" - many of which have graced coveted blogs such as ThisIs50, Boi1da.com, & Hip Hop Canada to name a few. I began making a name for myself after the release of my summer single "Queen" which premiered on Spotify’s “New Music Friday Canada". The song was received by tens of thousands of new listeners and eventually amassed about 100,000 streams across all streaming platforms. The success of the single “Queen” helped me gain massive airplay on Canadian radio stations national wide. With no intention of slowing down, I am focusing on continuing my journey with the aim of growing my fanbase. Plus, plotting out my next series of releases in 2019.
