Born in 1995, singer and producer Nonso Amadi grew up during one of the golden ages for Lagos Afrobeats. and he adopted the genres of softly textured, vocal-fused traditions with ease. After moving to Canada, he was inspired by modern R&B, citing Toronto native Drake’s genre-hopping style as an influence as he explores a genre inspired by North America and Africa in equal parts. Nonso Amadi is one of the most exciting artists to emerge in recent years.
A leader in the rising Alte/Afrobeats/R&B world, his unique fusion of sounds and diverse cultural influences are rooted in the African music of his childhood and encompass a truly global cohort of genres and styles. Building from that base and expanding outwards, we are poised to capture a diverse audience as Nonso's music welcomes fans of more traditional R&B music as well as urban sounds in general with open arms.
Nonso is a self-taught producer and writer who’s transparency makes it clear that he draws his artistic inspiration from genuine moments of extreme emotion such as heartbreak and pleasure.
He maintains a mystical impression to his persona which allows people to focus on the music. He believes that African music is a global sound and wants to use his ability to both write and produce as a way to help others in need.
