Ife Alaba (Born Ifeoluwa Alaba on June 10, 1999) is a Nigerian singer and songwriter. She grew up in South Africa with a strong musical background spanning from being in choirs, orchestras, undergoing opera training, and undertaking the trombone. Ife began her music career after moving to Canada, as a performer at the Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2017. She later released her debut single “All By Myself” in January 2020 to much local acclaim due to its numbing ear runs and bleeding emotion. Her second single, “Go Slow,” was released on May 29, 2020, and boasted her unique vocal abilities once more with its catchy melodies and relatable message. She uses life experiences as a muse for her heart-wrenching hooks and creative but subtle melodies, while still keeping her music relatable and catchy. She is a powerful vocalist whose music style has been influenced by a mixture of pop, afro, and classical music. She has named other artists such as Laura Mvula, Adele, Beyoncé, Nneka, and Andrea Bocelli as artists who have influenced her.
