Hailing from the buoyant streets of East London is singer / songwriter Dele, an artist who’s lyrical, sensual style of music immediately envelops you with its thematic reflections on love, human relationships and passion. As you behold his enduring good looks, muscular physic and urbane style, you witness a true star with a vast supply of charisma and class. Dele defines his music as a mix of R ‘n’ B, soul and a touch of dance. He is eclectic, timeless and simultaneously fresh.
At the tender young age of eight, Dele wrote his first song and discovered that he had the ability to move an audience with his voice. Inspired by the soulful tones of Boyz II Men’s musical versatility, and coupled with his siblings support and guidance, Dele’s song writing continued to flourish and strengthened his desire to enter the entertainment world. Through hard work and resilience, Dele kept going using his parents’ living room as a quasi-studio to pen tracks before joining forces with up and coming music producers from the area.
And then in 2008, Dele exploded on to the UK music scene with his debut single ‘EX’, which was a success and reached number seven in the MTV Base Music Chart. ‘EX’ also courted a number of rave reviews from radio stations all over the UK. Further releases included ‘F U Right’ and ‘Feel It’. These tracks have been played on various mainstream radio stations and numerous music video channels such as Kiss TV, MTV Base, and Flava.
Apart from Dele’s song-writing and singing skills, his performances never fail to delight all who witness his prowess. You only need to look upon the screaming girls singling in chorus to his songs whilst concurrently reaching out to touch Dele to realise you are observing someone special. Having already supported the likes of Dru Hill, Joe, Styles P and Blackstreet in notable venues in the UK, Dele also embarked on an international tour across Atlanta, USA.
As an up and coming young star, Dele has that crossover combination of youth and impending maturity that more than compliments his musical style and enhances the undoubted talent he possesses.
