Sola Allyson, a multiple award-winning singer/ songwriter, who is one of Nigeria’s most popular indigenous singers, was born in Ikorodu, Lagos State. Both primary and post-primary were at Lagos. She later attended The Polytechnic Ibadan to study Music Technology and graduated with Upper Credit in Voice (major), Piano (minor), and Performance as Area of Specialization.
She sings predominantly in Yoruba, her local language, and unapologetically so. Her powerful soul-relaxing voice, combined with her fluidity in the lyrical presentation of the Yoruba language has endeared her works to millions of fans, home, and abroad. Her music is transformational, correctional as it is entertaining; she is indeed a woman who is very deep into inspirational music. Even when you do not understand her words, her voice, and the sound of her music communicates deep into your soul. Low and high frequencies, her music comes from a very pure heart of worship. Anyone of any faith can connect with her music because of the folklore and the embedded truth in her lyrics which transcends religions or segregations but focuses on universal principles/ values that promote love and hope, which she believes is the true essence of her faith and beliefs. In her words, “I am from the Kingdom to life’s marketplace, a light bearer.”
