Truly Great things come in small packages. And one of them is encased in the beautiful wrappings of a young musical persona known as Nikki Laoye. Shortly after, creating a huge buzz with the release of her no 1 hit rock single, "Never Felt This Way Before", (with the musical signature of legendary producer, Cobhams), Nikki Laoye has finally calmed the nerves of her fans with the long awaited arrival of her 15 track debut album tagged "Angel 4 Life".

The album features some of Nigeria's great artistes such as Rooftop Mcs, Jeremiah Gyang, Blaise, Karl Nova, Rap2Sai, Otis etc...A masterpiece of great musical compositions and collaborations. Quite recently, the young sweet-voiced Nikki also accomplished the feat of being the first young nigerian artiste to have a double KORA Award nomination in her first major musical outing.

This is just the beginning of great exploits to be achieved by this beautiful petite young lady who's also one of the 26 nigerian artistes chosen to be a part of the MTVBase/Zain's show - ADVANCE WARNING.

All I want to do is talk about the great God whom I love so much, speak words of life and truth to the soul of man and touch peoples’ lives through my music”.
