TAYO, A native of Ilorin in Kwara State, Nigeria is best described as a young man who’s music maturity is beyond his age. His music origin emanated in 1998 from playing keyboard in the church and evolved in 2003 into becoming a member of gospel group “BORN II REIGN”. His studies in Building & Construction at F.U.T Minna did not dampen his real passion for music so a training stint in 2006 as a music producer/sound engineer in “Paul Play” I.K Dairo’s Studio (Playground) was a natural progression for cementing his music influences from the likes of Tracy Chapman, Marvin Gaye, John Denvers, Al green, Sam Cooke, Bob Marley, Teddy Pendergrass, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Lauryl Hill and John legend.
