About this artist

Posted By Tolumide

Nigerian-Canadian Singer-Songwriter, TolumiDE (pronounced toe-lu-mee-day), describes her music as “Suya Soul” a phrase she coined herself to describe the fusion of Contemporary R&B with African Pop music.

Suya, being a popular Spicy Grilled Shish kebab (skewered meat) indigenous to Nigeria and some West African regions, represents the alternative music flavour she offers her listeners and her debut album, ‘My Love’ reflects the term as a sonic cross-cultural blend of World Afro-pop Inspiration and Neo-Soul with mainly English lyrics and the touch of African Spice in the form of native language and rhythm. Influenced by acts within R&B, Gospel and Classic Soul genres such as Sade, Stevie Wonder, and Africa Pop stars as, Onyeka Owenu and Christy Essien Igokwe, TolumiDE whose name translates as “Thank God” in Yorùbá, has evolved as a female vocalist with audience grabbing performances, rave reviews and multiple awards.
