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.

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.

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.
