AML Approved: Local Talent ADAKU, Masters in Electrical Engineering Graduate, Set for a Music Takeover!

Creative people that are double and triple threats are an absolute turn on for me. Hmmm . . . I wonder why? 🙂 In my  BET discussions I recently had with you all, I mentioned there is a higher probability when you see an African musician, that they are not only gifted in the creative arena, they are also college educated. If they are Nigerian, add loads of graduate degrees on top of that. Rappers with MSCs, PHDs, JDs. What other group does that??! *Well. . .  .*

In any event, one of many examples of such creatively intelligent African music talent has to be this young lady Ms. Adaku from Nigeria. Just listen to her and and see why she is an AML Approved artist and definitely one to watch. In fact, forget all that. She is basically here to set the industry ablaze, within and outside the continent, of course.  Switches to Pidgin English. “You wey dey over dia! Ehn you. Abeg commot for road. In fact, park well jor real talent coming through on AML!” 🙂

AML USA Promoters, I think you can see from Zara Gretti to Duncan Daniels, Chris Akinyemi, Gloria Maduka, NAIRA to Adaku, why you should support local USA talent. Revisit my discussions on that issue here.

Have a Happy Friday and happy weekend.



“ADAKU is a US-Based Nigerian Singer/Songwriter from Nigeria who has had to hide her talent and passion for singing in order to fully complete her degree education in Electrical Engineering, an education which has finally culminated in a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. Throughout her education however, Adaku continued to immerse herself in music whenever and wherever she could – her YouTube covers of popular songs such as Bruno Mars’ “Grenade”, Adele’s “Someone Like You and Nneka’s “Heartbeat, garnering over 100,000 views on the popular video platform.

Gifted with an amazing voice, the Singer/Songwriter who also plays the guitar is set to storm the world with her uniquely sublime talents and is certainly well on her way on this journey as she was featured on YouTube’s home page as a part of the month of June’s Fresh face. This included a full day’s feature on YouTube’s music homepage.
