Late MKO Abiola’s daughter, Waliyah Abiola who is a Music Artiste

Waliyah Abiola is one of many children of her legendary
father who is still being celebrated in Nigeria 25 years after
his mandate was stolen by the military junta.
Waliyah Abiola discovered her music talent early in life.
But unlike her father, she says the passion has come to
stay, even if riches were to so flow her way later.
A graduate of Imperial College London, this sultry singer
says she started singing as a teenager, but never thought
anything of it professionally, until about 10 years ago.
To underscore how seriously she is taking her passion,
Waliyah headlined a sold-out concert at London’s Jazz
Cafe in 2011. She had organised and promoted the show
herself.
The following year, she wrote and performed the BBC
approved Olympic UK single, ‘It’s Time’ which was hugely
promoted by Coca Cola, Grammy award-winning Super
producer, Patrick Leonard, Quincy Jones, and Nigeria’s
Funmi Iyanda among others.
An Afro-pop singer, Waliyah started gaining prominence in
Nigeria after releasing her debut single, ‘Ejekajo’ which
received critical reviews on notable channels like Studio 53
Extra, Channel 0, MTV, Nigezie, Soundcity and others.
Apart from her debut song, she has other songs like
‘Siwaju’, produced by Sarz and ‘Shut It Down’, produced by
Tee Y Mix. She has also shared the stage with established
artistes like Tiwa Savage, Omawunmi, Nneka and 2Baba at
various shows.
