Waliyah is a hot new Afro pop Princess to watch out for. Literally. Because although she’s 100% Nigerian and proud, her name means Princess in Arabic. This talented up and coming artist has a masters in chemical engineering and a past career in investment banking.
Not entirely new to the music industry Waliyah has been writing songs for many years. With an Olympic tribute song approved by the BBC for use during the Olympic coverage on UK team and a sold out show with her band at London’s Jazz Cafe featuring her critically acclaimed soul pop song “Hidden Agenda”.
You may have spotted her first video ‘Ejekajo” on soundcity earlier on this year or performances at Rhythm unplugged and ovation red carol last Xmas or perhaps a Loud and Proud show, sharing the stage with Nneka, Tiwa Savage and Omawunmi. If you haven’t heard of her then you’re in for a treat. Check out her brand new songs below!
Waliyah - Shut It Down (3.9 MiB, 317 hits)
