It would be good if newcomer Diwari didn’t fall so romantically sick where she needed medicine, but you all know how this “illness” called love can catch you when you least expect. So, if you are currently in that sick place, maybe Diwari’s ‘Ogun Mi’ (you are my medicine) can help you express yourself to that guy/gal. Careful, be sure he/she is worth the headache.
AML fellas, hmmmm if a fella told me I was “his medicine,” I’d think it was a bit corny, and one of the cheesiest lines I have ever heard and I know I would hit the next button for the next applicant. The line may work for most ladies but if you like AML type ladies, y’all may wanna try spitting a harder more creative game. Maybe that line may not work? LOL! Then again, corny/cheesy lines have a place too. LOL!
Enjoy this beautiful woman’s song and talent.
“Soul singer DIWARI was born Diwari Kelvin Peterside in London, England on October 1.
“I’m the second of four children from Senibo and Mrs. Kelvin Peterside, a proud Nigerian and a daughter of the ancient kingdom of Opobo in Rivers state,” DIWARI says. “I grew up in Lagos, returning to the UK to attend university.
“My love for music began when I was very young, having been influenced by my parents’ tastes. I was a staple chorister and local diva throughout my secondary school days,” she laughs.
With her powerful voice and Donnie McClurkin, Smokie Norful, J Moss, Whitney Houston, Michael Buble, John Legend, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Onyeka Onwenu, Beyonce, Billy Ocean, Adele, Luther Vandross influences, DIWARI’s performance skills and vocal dexterity were personally honed while she served as a choir soloist in her church.
She had a few singing jobs and featured on the albums of some UK gospel artistes. An apex in DIWARI’s singing career was when she performed at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall as one of the leading vocals in the annual Prom Praise. Her craft has also taken her to Almere, Netherlands.
“In November 2011 I tried out for Nigerian Idol Season 2″
DIWARI, finished as a top finalist on the show through the support of her family, friends, and fans. Her outing earned DIWARI good reviews in the media, the Guardian citing her run in the competition as “fantastic.”
Even though she didn’t win, she has proved not to be a quitter as this experience has birthed the brand DIWARI, a bonafide Afro-soul singer and recording artiste.
DIWARI has since performed on the same stage with Nigerian superstar acts like Tuface Idibia and 9ice at a STAR sponsored concert, earning her a full feature spread in the Punch Newspaper.
Signed to M.Music, a Lagos based record label, she’s now working on her debut album.
“I passionately believe in chasing after your dreams. With hardwork and God on your case, you can achieve amazing things.
“How long do you push? Until.”
And this is just the beginning.”
