I've known ADAKU for a while and for as long as I've known her, I've always admired her creative flair. Among the list of things that seriously up her cool girl factor (such as being my fellow PH sister, modelling part time, hooking up some bad ass interior decoration, and that HAIR), she is gifted with an amazing voice AND also writes songs. This US-Based Nigerian Singer/Songwriter from Rivers State 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 (whoop whoop for smart chicks!). 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.
This Singer/Songwriter who also plays the guitar and piano is set to storm the world with her uniquely sublime talents and is certainly well on her way on this journey as she was handpicked by YouTube as one of the five female artists that knocked their socks off in their Fresh Faces series. This included a full day's feature on Youtube's music homepage.
ADAKU just released her fresh new single titled "Or You Can". In her own words, ADAKU describes "Or You Can" as a song about being there for a friend, a lover or a loved one who needs a shoulder to lean on and most importantly a "big ass fro" to lay on. Initially posted on Youtube as a bedroom recording and a deviation from the usual YouTube cover videos, "Or You Can" took on a life of its own with over 15,000 YouTube views and troves of positive feedback that Adaku decided to create a studio version of "Or You Can" and release it as a single. Superbly written and produced by Adaku, it is a beautiful acoustic song with great lyrics and soothing guitar play that leaves the listener captivated and enthralled.
