Recording artist, performer, and vocalist NAIRA weaves a well fitting pattern of love, pain, strength, and energy into one powerful punch with her individualistic style of music. Naira pens the term for the music that she creates as “Urban-Soul”; pulling from influences of soul, funk, blues, afro-pop, reggae, and r&b along with the youthful, free, and edgy energy of hip-hop. Her creation is a blend that has never quite been touched before. She is the pulse of everything urban; everything current. Just as noted for her lyrical abilities in the rap world as her sweet vocals in the singing arena… Naira has become a seasoned veteran although she is relatively new and developing in the industry. In the exploration of her creativity, she landed her first lead role in the feature film “Pathways”, directing music videos and short films as well as song placements on different film soundtracks (see IMDB) Being a 6 time Nigerian Entertainment Award nominee has far from stopped NAIRA from reaching for higher heights. As a songwriter and international performer,
collaborative efforts and shared stages with the likes of 2Face Idibia, Jovan Dais,
Gripplyaz, Raskimono, Richelle L. Brown, Mama’s Mustache, Riz, Stacy Epps, Banky
W, Naeto C, Mojo Swagger, Rasheedah, Cy Marshall Law, Rasun and countless others
are part of her repertoire.
Her gifts have garnered her airplay on some of the world’s biggest radio stations
both mainstream and underground airwaves as well as being seen on MTV, MTV
BASEAFRICA, AIT, Nigezie (Nigeria/London) and other television networks. Having
sold several thousand copies of her previous projects, the heartfelt tribute album
dedicated to the artist’s late mother “On My Angel’s Wings” rejuvenated her passion
for life & music. Now the world patiently awaits more from NAIRA as she makes
her grand re-entry with the album "FEARLESS: The Art of Letting Go" featuring
singles “OverDrive” and “Fly Hustle, Fresh Grind”.
