BIOGRAPHY

Tomi Thomas is a multi-talented Nigerian Afropop/R&B musician, composer, and passionate entertainer whose strong vocals, emotional power, candour, and charisma enchant audiences. On November 9, 1992, he was born in Lagos, although grew up in Kano, Lagos, and Atlanta.

His enthusiasm for drumming, dancing, and singing was a constant wherever he resided, having been exposed to music at an early age and studying music and the performing arts in school. Because of his varied inspirations, Tomi’s music is eclectic. Soul combines electronic sounds, hip hop with highlife, Afrobeat with the house, and raw acoustic tones collide in his distinctive style.

Some of his musical influences include Mariah Carey, Bob Marley, Fela Kuti, and Eminem. Tomi, who has Yoruba, Igbo, and Brazilian origins, loves to experiment with diverse sounds and cultures in order to find inspiration for his compositions. He is a free-spirited and skilled musician who believes that music is a soul-stirring sensation.

Tomi Thomas began his career in 2010 as a member of the popular Nigerian R&B musical ensemble Loud On Sound (LOS), a boy’s band that includes King Zamir, Briss, and Bridge. With hits like “Bad Guy P,”‘On Fire,” and “Tribe,” the group has blossomed.

While still affiliated to the group, Tomi debuted a solo career in 2014 with the release of his first EP, ‘’Patience,” which includes the tracks ‘’Ready or Not,” that hit #1 on the SoundCity Nigeria Top 10 Chart in 2015, and ‘’The Renaissance,” which debuted on the MTV Bass Charts.
