DESOLA is an inspirational singer, songwriter, music artist and a worship leader.
The MOBO featured artist originally born into a non-religious home always felt that there was something unique about music that touches the heart. This feeling no doubt had a massive impact in her life as a teenager and the desire to sing continued when she came to the UK. Having sang with music groups and church choirs, it was only a few years ago that she yielded to the unrelenting call into the music industry. It was at this point that a desire to become an inspirational artist with a message was then birthed.
Her life was filled with stories that are a mix of tears and laughter which describes the challenges and victories that she has been through. With this, she keeps her head above water by singing her heart out. The songs she puts together to inspire her, are contained in her debut album which has in many ways recorded testimonies from fans around the world and have received a number of nominations and won standout awards in the UK.
“The first inspiration comes when God spoke in songs on doing His will to fly high above any troubled waters”. This is a revelation God brought to her on desiring a wing like a dove and to fly away from all the struggles to a place to of rest.
Desola’s eclectic musical taste which cuts across neo–soul and jazz to RnB and traditional gospel are reflected in her songs, and her song writing is touching and heartfelt. She has a natural ability to connect with the listener ensuring that the message of hope and faith is not compromised but is presented in a creative and melodious way.
The previously released twelve tracks debut album titled “Rest” expresses that yielding to God will bring you to a place of peace that passes all understanding. There are 3 videos from the album titled Flying High, I Will Testify and the newly released What Has Changed In You which is widely accepted and loved by many. Desola is currently working on her new album which will be released soon.
As an artist her desire is to touch as many lives as possible with her music and message of hope in hopeless situations. She strongly believes in the word of God as a devout Christian and has plans to get people together who are going through one struggle or another to pour out their hearts in a new song which will get them back on their feet again.
Desola’s ministry continues to grow as doors open for her to reach people all over. In 2015 she performed as the New Artist Of The Year at the London African Music Festival in Hootananny Brixton. She has also had two top 3 tracks in the UK Christian Chart in 2015 and 2016, as well as being featured on the Mobo.com website. On stage she has also had the opportunity to support Erica Campbell and Annastasia Baker at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.
Desola is also an award winner. She has won the Critics Choice at the Gospel Touch Music Awards, was a winner of the Praistek Gospel Music Award and nominated for Best Female Gospel Act at the BEFFTA Awards.
