BIOGRAPHY

Oluwaseun Omolara Oni (born September 2) popularly known as “The #BoyChick SAEON MORUDA with the #87Swags”, is a Nigerian Singer, Rapper, Songwriter and all round entertainer originally from Oyo State, Ibadan but born and bred in Lagos. Most of her formative years took place in Festac Town, Lagos.

She has a background in International Studies and History from the University of Babcock, Nigeria and a Masters Degree in International Relations from the University of Warwick, United Kingdom.

Right from an early age of about 5, SAEON MORUDA had always known she was going to end up in showbiz, Music being her major. With her unparalleled passion for Music, influences from her Father who sang but never professionally and majorly from music of the 90’s, she eventually wrote her first song at the age of 13 during her MOCK corridor lessons in Queen’s College out of boredom and named it “True Love”.

She coined her stage name, SAEON, by playing with the letters in her real names. MORUDA didn’t become a part of her stage name until later in her career. While making a song titled “Boogie down”, she used the line “sexy mama SAEON mo rude ah” (English for sexy mama SAEON I’m rude, ah!). On seeking a verdict from her good friend, he interpreted it as SAEON MORUDA.

SAEON being the creative that she is, embraced the essence of it and seamed it into her stage name, making it her last name. SAEON MORUDA likes to describe herself as a a one-woman army with a passion for what she does. She says the name “MORUDA” brings out the tough tomboy side in her, which explains her “#BoyChick” brand.

In 2010, SAEON MORUDA became the first ever winner of “The Underground” a platform that showcased up coming Artistes, and through this opportunity, she made a name for her self by releasing a few demos including the popular Let It Go (Oops), Recover From You ft Falz, I’ll Be Gone and My Man. She also featured on Blackmagic’s Foreigner”, where she showed her diversity in delivery by spitting 8 bars on it.
