Personal Life

Nonso Amadi is a Canadian-based Afro-R & B, Soul singer, songwriter, and producer from Nigeria. He embarked on his music career in 2012 while in Covenant University where he studied BSc. Chemical Engineering.

In 2014, he discontinued studying in Nigeria and moved to Swansea University, U.K. and completed his degree. He is currently also a master’s degree holder from McMaster’s University, Canada.

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.
