Deyji’s Music Is Easy On The Ear
When you know how to play the acoustic guitar so well, sing with an undertone of pop and country music, have a fantastic stage presence, and release a debut single titled Falling, the entire music industry will inevitably fall in love with your career. That is the synopsis of the artiste called Deyji.
I am a music junkie and enthusiast. I spend most of my day listening to music from different genres and languages. It’s a joy to share my music with the rest of the world.
Son of deacons – christened Osan Oladeji Ede, a native of Warri North LGA, Delta State, “I started singing when I was a kid – reluctantly, I must add. My parents made it almost impossible for me to escape leading the Children Choir in Christmas Carols. I dabbled on and off with music for the rest part. However, in 2012, my interest in music was rekindled when I listened to the song “Give me love” by Ed Sheeran. I felt crazily inspired to sing again.
I picked up playing the guitar in 2014. I released my first single “Falling” in 2019. I then had another follow-up single called “I’ll Show You.”
Deyji’s music is a fusion of Pop, Rock, and RnB genres. “My music is heavily influenced by listening to Ed Sheeran, Passenger, Jon Bellion, Johnny Drille, and Ric Hassani. I am a firm believer in love, the excitement, the sensuality and vulnerability it brings. I communicate all of those in my music.”
