Celeste Ojatula was born and raised in Lagos Nigeria, She grew up in a family where the taste in the music genre was diverse. She listened from high-life sounds to jazz, rock, and soul. As well, there were the constant “tales by moonlight” and the traditional/folk-like call-and-response music that happened consistently throughout her childhood. This subsequently, influenced her perspective on musical sounds and genres.
Celeste is an independent artist whose genre of music can be regarded as alternative/ indie-folk. Her sound, accompanied by her guitar can be described as surreal and transcendental. She plays the acoustic and lead guitars as well as percussion instruments. The inspiration for her sound is drawn from human life, literature, and spirituality.
Celeste has performed at events such as The Annual Rock Festival (ROCKTOBERFEST), Make Music Lagos, Jazz Festival, Felabration but to mention a few.
Asides from music, Celeste is a short-story writer, content developer, and poet; her website, myidlepen.com. She is also currently an ambassador for Mentally Aware Nigeria Initiative (MANI), an NGO working towards the awareness of mental health in Nigeria. Celeste is currently working on her debut EP.
