The artiste ‘Tolu Flava’ also known as Tflava (pronounced Tee Flavor) can be described as the model young African music entrepreneur. His music career started very early in life when at age 6 he started singing in the junior choir at the church he attended with his parents. He had a great curiosity for music and would often tap on the grand piano after church services, often getting into trouble for it.
Since then, music has been a recurring theme in Tolu’s life as he was involved in school bands in every school he attended from elementary school to university. In his days at University of Lagos, Tolu co-founded a music group S.N.D (Sounds from a New Dispensation), and they organized various concerts like Bounce 2 This, Mission Impossible 1 and Mission Impossible 2. This were huge concerts on campus and so very successful.
After graduation, Tolu sharpened his entrepreneurial skills and he is currently co-founder and director of Y Pay More, Nigeria’s premier instant discount and loyalty brand. He has also produced commercial jingles for mainstream brands such as Bournvita, House2Home and more.
This producer, songwriter and singer has helped set up and direct various choir bodies and is often called upon to make musical decisions based on his knowledge & experience.
Why music still? Tolu answers, “Because I Can”. He says “there is so much music inside of me and it’s a heavy burden keeping it inside so I have to let it out, plus it’s a gift and a talent given by God. I don’t want to be ungrateful by not harnessing this gift thus depriving the world of the kind of music I can create without too much effort”.
His name is Tolu, he likes to call himself the Flava (flavor) of the world, something like the salt of the earth…. in a music kind of way. Get Low, listen up to his song ….enjoy! iRecommend![audio:https://www.360nobs.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/how-low-Tolu.mp3|titles=how low (Tolu]
