Born Olasunkanmi Salaam in Lagos state, Nigeria. Fell in love with music the day he listened to ‘sexual healing’ from Marvin Gaye and ‘give it to me’ from Rick James. Started singing in ’97 with an acapella group locally known as “da supreme boiz”, spent some time studying the art of music, began writing his own lyrics in ’99 practised through 2003 when he gained admission to the university.
He sang with several musical groups, he later went solo in 2006. In 2008, he won the Mtn/Soundcity Campusblast musical competition held in Ibadan and went on the 2face & friends tour later that year. The name ‘SKY’ is simply a metaphorical expression that’s used to describe the level of his musical versatility and ‘NIGHTINGALE’ simply means a songbird.
Sky Nightingale is a prolific song writer, guitarist and an incredible stage performer with over 6 years of recording/studio experience. His genre of music is predominantly Soul/R&B. His debut single “DODOKIDO” (written, arranged and co-produced by Sky Nightingale, produced by Sarz) is presently enjoying airplay on various radio stations across Nigeria. Listen up and enjoy!
