An exclusive press breakfast with Singer/Songwriter Tonyé held on the 17th of Feb. 2015.
Tonyé is an international recording Artist & Songwriter.
Born in England, she spent most of her childhood and adult years in Paris, Nigeria, and Washington, DC, her formal educational background is in International Business & Fashion Merchandising and her resume includes work for two major financial firms: UBS Financial and Deloitte. She ultimately took a leap of faith in 2009 to explore and pursue her love for music.
In 2010, her emotional accapella titled ‘What About Us’, captured the hearts of many, and was used for the Nigerian Youth Presidential debate in 2011. The opportunity emerged as a new beginning for Tonyé; as it allowed her to fully immerse herself into recording her own music. Her first two singles ‘Were Ni Yen’ and ‘Wait For Me’ (a Cover of the classic Sunny Ade and Onyeka Onwenu hit song) were successful.
In October of 2014, she released her hit single titled single, ‘Criminal’ with a remix of the song with music maestro Timaya which was released in December 2014. Also in December, she released a Christmas themed song ‘Merry Christmas Baby’ featuring Shaydee, Geoffrey Oji & Magnito, which was accompanied with an interesting video.
She recently launched a brand new website, www.IAmTonye.com as well as her new image for the year 2015.
The new website now live, has her singles, videos, and new images on it and also serves as a platform to connect with fans and media.
