Music breaths life into any troubled soul but some people breath life into music.
Born Adokiye Yvonne Kyrian to a staunch Roman Catholic Okirika family in Rivers State, 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 singing.
Currently her two singles “Baby Baby” ft Olamide and “Kulumo” ft Black 70 are testimonials to the fact that some people breath life into music. With her huge hunger for producing good music, she believes that through hard work and dedication she would some day be rated as one of the best African exports in music.
However for the talented and energetic artiste signed to AEON Music; singing and writing songs are not the only things that keeps Adokiye busy as she flexes her talent as an entrepreneur by mastering the art of marketing and also enjoys empowering the less privileged from all works of life. In her words, ‘I’ve been on the charity movement since high school with any little thing I have….I enjoy taking it out to share with less privileged’
Within the short period of her sojourn into professional music (2012), she has worked with producers like Charles, Embrace, Yiseng, Preccy P, and Breezy; and artistes like Splash, Black70, Sym19, Hitmaker Tep (New York), Evil (London), Flyer (New York) and Olamide (Nigeria).
With an unflinching love for Nigerian kind of 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.
