Teekay da Newborn is an Emcee, a song writer, Poet, leader and University graduate Nigeria . Born in Lagos Nigeria as Adetokunbo Omoyele. His name in english translates to ‘Crowned king overseas and the child deserves a home’.
His attraction to music manifested at an early age, I’m talking about back in the days of black & white television, when T.V. stations ceased broadcasting at midnight! At that time, Lagos was obsessed with raga music… “Under the stars at night, kids from the hood would meet at welder’s shops to freestyle, and made beats by hitting vessels with sticks an’ the palms of their hands”
Rapping in Yoruba, Pidgin and English, Teekay is a renaissance Emcee, not to mention a beatsmith, entrepreneur. And as he acts on his destiny, so it unfolds. Teekay is giving us a gift his thoughts made manifest. He has performed at various events from charity drives and fashion shows, to social festivals and corporate events. His style is unique; his delivery is tailor-made; and his flow is second to none.
As the world quests for a meaningful hip-hop album, look no further than Teekay Da Newborn. The stage is set, the plan in place, and the sugar coating is as sweet as it comes. The release of the debut album ‘BabySteps’ is just a taste of what is in the in pipeline. Listen to these three cuts off the album! Enjoy!
