Music is widely known as a form of expression. Its is a way of showing what one feels is his/her idea of entertainment. It is adjudged depending on individual psyche or mood hence its permissibility of no hard n fast rules in composition though ethics still guides it. Interestingly the musical talents in Nigeria are so diverse that music fans are torn between loyalties and allegiances. There are the R&B sect, Hip Hop Heads, Dancehall sect and a sect better described as Party Rockaz.
One female act in diaspora is fast carving a niche for herself as the sole representative of 9ja Diva’s in the Party Rockaz genre and she is coming offshore with a huge command of an army of loyalists.
Born Yewande Abiodun in a family of four, music has always been a gate-away avenue at expressing her rather shy countenance. For her in a family of educationists, Yewande has always had the knack to releasing her innermost feeling through music despite stiff and stern opposition from her mother especially. In her words, ” I’m the last child and doing music is hard cos to my mum I be outcast oo…unto say she think I no wan read”, very witty indeed. But like a known fact, no amount of dilution can taint the colour white as it is through its hue that others derive their shine.
This protege of Akure in Ondo State with an amazing bundle of talents better known as OluwachingchongTipsy (Tipsy for short) has within the short period of her emergence grown both in talent and fan base.
September 2010 saw this sexy Diva step out with what she prefers to call a freestyle session, a track titled KOMIJE which quickly warmed its way into the hearts of music lovers all the way from London where she resides. Currently she is signed to BIGBOYZ ENT London alongside Award winning Ace Producer/Artiste JJC Skillz of the AWOOOO fame, AB Fresh, Nooni & Lil Miss.
Tipsy has two fresh tracks currently tearing the airwaves apart in Nigeria from far away London titled WANT MORE and BAMIDELE ft DeeBee of Collabo fame which were produced by Teebeeo (who also featured on one of her songs alongside JJC Skillz) for BigBoyz Ent London.
Funny enough a first time encounter with this Divalicious Queen of Party Rockaz portrays a rather shy female whose lyrical prowess aptly looms into limelight once she takes a stand behind a microphone. She has worked with producers like Teebeeo and JJC Skillz and still has musical works with artistes like Hip Hop Fuji Maestro 9ice, Orezi, Seriki, Ajayi Brothers, Rayce and Harrysong of Questionsmark Records in her kitty. Her forthcoming sophomore album “20th London Bridge” is due to drop soon under BigBoyz Ent London.
An ardent and talented performer, Tipsy has graced events in UK with Hip Hop Fuji King 9ice where she thrilled the ecstatic audience with energetic on-stage stage craft/showmanship. She has also featured on “Party” by Lil Miss of same label. One her singles “Want More” has a splendid and yet to be experienced kind of musical video (Directed by JJC Skillz) and would soon hit airwaves across the globe.
Deriving inspiration from her role models 9ice, Terry G and JJC Skillz this soft-spoken and swaggalicious Diva is set to take the Nigerian music scene by storm as she intends to take the reins of power of the Diva clan from the likes of Sasha, Mo’Cheeda, Omawuni etc when she finally steps into the ring of contention later in 2011.
Oluwachingchongzinga another alias of hers is truly set to becoming the Prima Donna of the Diva Clan of the Nigerian Music Industry and all female emcees should get ready to rumble.[audio:http://www.360nobs.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Bamidele-Tipsy-ft.-Deebee-Collabo.mp3-4shared.com-online-file-sharing-and-storage-download.mp3|titles=Tipsy ft Deebee Collabo – Bamidele]
