A couple of months ago Tonye was unveiled as the First Lady of TripleMG music group under Ubi Franklin and Iyanya.
In her first interview as an artist under the record label, Tonye talks about how the deal came to be, the signing process and the pressure she feels now that she is under a record label.
Tonye is a Musical Artist, Songwriter and Creative who has taken the African music industry by storm with her ultra-sensational, sultry vocals and lyrics.
Born in England, Tonyé spent most of her childhood and adult years in Paris, Nigeria, and Washington, DC.
From a very young age, she had already begun forging her musical path as she dabbled in dance and theatrical arts both in and outside of school. After obtaining a Bachelors’ degree in International Business & Fashion Merchandising from Marymount University, she did a stint in Corporate America. While she reached many heights in her corporate career, her love for music pushed her to reignite her childhood passion.
On December 5th, 2012, Tonyé released her debut single titled “Insane (Wèrè Nìyẹn)” to the world. “Wèrè Nìyẹn” reflects a sound with mass appeal, while the synth heavy production courtesy of E. Kelly serves as a canvas for Tonyé ‘s vocals to blast through; beckoning listeners to go Insane on the dance floor and sing off key to her perfectly layered riffs.
