Nonso Amadi is a 22 year old singer who came into the scene with a beautiful, moody yet melodic track, titled Tonight in September, 2015. He then followed up with his debut EP, Alone which is also his first project. Since its release, “Tonight” has been streamed more than 1.9 million times on his SoundCloud page and has been his most successful work so far.
Nonso Amadi grew up in Lagos, Nigeria and comes from a fairly large family. The Canadian-based Afro- R & B, Soul singer and producer from Nigeria embarked on his music career in 2012 while in Covenant University. He later discontinued his schooling there and shortly after moved to Swansea University, U.K. and completed his degree.
Nonso Amadi went the music path because he felt it was a way to talk to himself as well as escape life’s realities. He taught himself to produce and write his songs, “I draws my lyrical inspiration from events around me, moments of extreme emotional phases such as heart break, and sensual pleasures” – He says.
The “Tonight” crooner also cites Jon Bellion as his major musical influence. He is also inspired by the likes of Drake, Shakka, Justin Bieber and Bryson Tiller. He also looks up to artistes like Wizkid, Wande Coal, Maleek Berry and Legendary Fela for his afro- influence.
