A singer, songwriter and performer, Ify Otuya, studied Music Performance & Production at the prestigious London Centre of Contemporary Music, where she received tuition from some international names including Toby Baker [Sinead O’connor, B.B King], Sid Gauld [Incognito], Pete Zeldman [Jaco Pastorius], Richie Stevens [Jay-Z], and played with the legendary Pee Wee Ellis and Fred Weseley [James Brown]. Based in Lagos, she’s written, recorded and toured the UK with musicians that include Folk-Soul sensation, Whateverland, and Contemporary vocal group, Souls of Prophecy Gospel Choir [Prince’s Trust Fund]; she’s also been visible at different times, in circles within the Nigerian music industry [Felabration, Star Trek].

In 2010, she released her début EP, “The Eclectic Definition of Miss O [E.D.M.O]“, for which she combined African poly-rhythms with the melodic and emotive inflections of R&B; she is currently working on her début album, ‘The Princess’ Ball‘. The 1st single expected to be released from the album is the Afro-Pop dance number, “Body Work,” earlier scheduled to be released in the last week of March 2015, but postponed, post the Nigerian Presidential elections season; a video for the single was shot in December 2014. Between the release of “E.D.M.O” in 2010 and “Body Work” in 2015, Ify Otuya observed a hiatus from the music industry, which she has since explained as taking time off from the industry to identify and evaluate her own long-term expectations for herself and her career; she gradually evolved into a full-fledged entrepreneur and now runs her own company, Họmage – an incorporation of a clothing line, record company and management group. Her management group also runs a photo studio at her Họmage Incorporated offices in Lagos.

What sets this talented Afro-Bohemian girl apart is her ability to effortlessly combine the earthiness of her roots with the essences of Contemporary culture – a combined motivational force of experience, relevance, and diversity comes through in her music; listen up and share your thoughts. | ENJOY!!!
