Introducing Gbolahan in 'lojojumo'.


The Nigerian music industry is experiencing a major renaissance as a whole new generation of Afro hip hop, soul, r & b and pop acts rise to establish a new age in our music culture with major international appeal. One of such acts is Gbolahan, an inspiring yet versatile singer and songwriter with a flair for Rock and R&B juiced with a strong rhythm from ‘dante’, his acoustic guitar which he plays with thoroughbred skill.

Gbolahan (pronounced ‘gbor-la-hun’, which means, show off my wealth!) is a native of the Yoruba tribe in South Western Nigeria and was born in Lagos. As a freshman economics undergraduate at the University of Lagos in 1996, he was encouraged to learn to play the guitar by a neighbor during a 6-month Academic Staff Union strike. With the aid of the book given to him, he began his journey to becoming a versatile guitarist, pianist, singer, songwriter and guitar tutor to over 200 clients including the world acclaimed guitar playing songbird, ASA.

Gbolahan has released singles with critical acclaim such as ‘Agbanilagbatan’ (ultimate deliverer), ‘Seni ma dupe’(I’ll always give thanks) and ‘Valentine’; all produced by the highly acclaimed
producer, Cobhams Asuquo.

He recently teamed up with Wole Oni, another highly acclaimed producer to record his new single ‘Lojojumo’ (Everyday), an upbeat Rock classic which is receiving good reviews and airplay from radio stations. He plans to shoot videos and promote his work towards the release of his
12-track album titled, ‘Seni ma dupe’ in 2011.
