Lady Donli born Zainab Donli is a Neo-soul artist from Kaduna State in Nigeria. She is the youngest of six kids. Donli spent most of her early life in Abuja where she grew up listening to music on cassette tapes and around family who spent time in the studio. Her exposure to the scene at an early age led to Donli’s professional and laid back persona, both things you can hear in her music.
Her big break came in 2016, when she released her project ‘Wallflower’. Though at the time she was recording “Wallflower”, Donli was juggling both school and family, she spent most of her time recording everything herself. Donli cites Erykah Badu, ASA, Nneka and Andre 3000 as her major influences. Her music alternates from alternative jazz to R&B to Hip-Hop.
Her singles Ice Cream and Kashe Ni made it onto the radio airwaves and with her collaborations, she owned the summer of 2017. Even featuring on Complex About to Blow.
