The new singer, Chelle, is bringing a new vibe to today’s Nigerian music scene. The young Nigerian, born and bred in New York hails from a strong musical family and contributes a versatile style and a crisp new sound. The way she flawlessly fuses the New York culture and the Nigerian pop style, creates an incredible and unique blend that leaves her audience breathless.
Influenced by artists such as Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill, King Sunny Ade, and Fela Kuti, she redefines the meaning of “African pop”. Her playful and down to earth demeanor appeals to the masses and has allowed her to win over the hearts of her fans. With the strength and compassion of her messages, she will no doubt relate to people from all walks of life.
Chelle has merged with international producers MicTunes, hip-hop world awards nominee, and two-time Nigerian Entertainment Award winner, who have produced songs for Nigerian superstar 2face (hit single, “No Shaking” and “Cant do without you“). They have helped to redefine her sound with songs like “Till we meet again” and “Opon ti sun“, her first single which depicts a rise to fame and fortune.
She continues to master the art of singing and is determined to give her fans music that they want to hear. She is currently working on the completion of her debut album geared for release in the fourth quarter of 2010. The video for ‘Opon Ti Sun‘ has been done and should be out very very soon. The Video was directed by Jazz Black and shot in Hollywood, California.
