Adesoji Adebayo, Solek aka Wonderboy is an Afropop Afrobeat Juju Beat maker, Musician, Producer, Live Performer, Entertainer and Singer who has been on the music scene since 1995. Born in England and raised in the heartlands of Ibadan one of the oldest and most powerful cities of Yoruba land and the second largest city in Nigeria.

Growing up in a Christian home and within a cultural environment that embraces traditional sounds, music and instruments as part of socio-cultural interactions; Solek was surrounded by music from childhood and took an active interest in music participating in church choirs and social functions at school.

His style of music is strongly linked to the Fuji-juju style and  he has developed fusion of traditional and modern Yoruba sounds, mixed in with Fuji and juju, sprinkled with pop, blended with hip-hop and R&B.

Solek has ingeniously created and branded his own unique recipe of music called, Solek Style “hip juju”. ‘JUJU-TUNGBA’ a modernistic style of afro beat music that actively involves the use of Yoruba colloquialism, words, syllables  and rhymes that are interspersed with hints of pop, jazz, blues and soul in the African style popularly
called Afropop/Afrobeat.
