Meet The Delectable Adokiye
Music breathes life into any troubled soul but some people breathe life into music. Born Adokiye Ngozi Kyrian to a christian family of Oguta L.G.A in Imo State and Ogu Bolo in Okrika L.G.A. of Rivers State, all in Nigeria. “ADOKIYE” as she is widely known is a singer and song writer whose musical style is deep rooted in the Afro-fusion genre of music.
The Caritas University graduate of ARCHITECTURE started her musical journey at an early age, influenced by music icons such as Onyeka Onwenu, Aretha Franklin, King Sunny Ade, Lauryn Hill and Bob Marley.
During her university days she was a member of a minor musical group called the “MASE” comprising of four young talents whose first name alphabets were coined to get the name “MASE”. Her exploits with the group contributed in exposing and sharpening her musical skills to a great extent which saw her gearing towards professional.
With her huge hunger for becoming great in Entertainment, she believes that through hard work and dedication she would someday be rated as one of the best African exports.
However for the talented and energetic artiste signed to Aeon Entertainments, singing and writing songs are not the only things that keeps her busy, as she also kicked her acting career in late 2013, Adokiye says acting has always been part of her and she also flexes her talent as an entrepreneur and enjoys empowering the less privileged from all works of life.
The Architect, Singer, Actor and United Nations Peace Ambassador In her words, “I have been on the charity movement since high school with any little thing I have….I enjoy taking it out to share with the less privileged”
With an unflinching love for good music, Adokiye who adores musicians like 2face Idibia, D’Banj and Rihanna (whom she dreams of working with some day) says, ‘I wanna do music for the rest of my life’ a die-hard assertion and belief for her.
She also loves travelling for vacations, making people laugh and has natural acting skills.
