Oyinkansola & Her Honey Laced Voice …Get the 360Fresh on the soon to be Diva

share on:

When I first heard Oyinkansola on the chorus for fellow Black Label mate Enormoss’ Viva Las Gidi, I was blown away by her vocals. I was still unsure how broad her voice range would be until her gem of a track was dropped into my inbox.

Like most divas, Oyinkansola Abosede Moronfolu started her music career as a child singing in the choir. She grew up listening to the music of indigenous greats like Kollington AyinlaBarrister, FelaKing Sunny Ade, Ebenezer Obey and Majek Fashek. She also would listen to her uncle’s foreign collection of Michael Jackson, Musical Youth and New Edition.

Born to civil servant parents in Abeokuta, her Father retired from the security services while her late mother was an immigration officer; Oyinkansola is the third of five children with a brother and sister on either side. She had her primary and secondary education in Abeokuta before attending the Ibadan Polytechnic College of education.

As she grew into her late teens and early twenties she discovered and fell in love with the music of contemporary greats like Mary J. Blige, Anita Baker, Tracy Chapman and more recently Jasmine Sullivan and India Arie.

Oyinkansola also plays the acoustic guitar angelically. It’s no wonder she teams up with GT The Guitarman on her track – Hands Up.

The song will grow on you. Get Familiar!!!
