Years after she made her debut with the then popular Afrobeats sound group, JJC & 419 Squad in the UK and enjoyed successful solo career thereafter, charismatic British – Nigerian soul singer, Shady Blue has staged an emphatic return to music in style.
The Afrocentric Soulful Jazz Queen is back after a long hiatus with a new single ‘No Fall my Hand’ from her yet to be titled EP.
The song “No Fall My Hand” produced by TeeBeeO is her first attempt at the commercial sound of Afropop/ Afrobeat and it is a beguiling one to begin with.
Shady Blue mesmerizes with her powerful and unique vocal depth and unleashed each lyric profoundly on the song to the delight of music fans across the world.
Shady was born and raised in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria, West Africa to a Nigerian – Yoruba father and bi-racial mother (half Ghanaian and half English). She was influenced by her father’s music, a renowned Jazz musician/producer in Nigeria.
Her unique vocal style blends the best of Soul/R&B/Jazz and Afrobeat / Afrocentric Soulful Jazz (her native African sound) forming music that will truly inspire a generation.
