Your Arms (Fun mi Layo) is the first single release from the upcoming ‘Suya Soul’ album.
TolumiDE’s smooth vocals quietly opens up the infectious love song. Backed by a bubbly, Afro-infused pop beat, she sings about the awakening feeling of finding love and accepting its pleasures and securities. There’s this sense of easy love that makes it impossible not to smile and dance along.

I’m working on a two part project for my new music. The 1st will be a 6 song EP Album titled Mama Sunshine and the 2nd a Full-length Album #SuyaSoul. Mama Sunshine album will give listeners a more intimate setting with me. I share joys, memoirs and adventures of being a female in the 21st century, while staying transparent and open with the tough situations that life throws our way. The full-length album will include additional songs I’ve written and I will be working with talented industry professionals, musicians and producers.
I believe this upcoming project has the ability to connect with anyone that listens. I tell love stories through my music, not just love for your significant other, but all levels and areas of love. Love for the world, friendship, children, God and for life as a whole. I strive to create music that combines heart and soul messages that’s relatable and keeps us grounded and appreciating life.

I believe in the power of music to entertain, enlighten, encourage, and engage, and I would love your support towards creating good quality music that I’m hoping will become part of your music playlists. I also have a special perk that offers 50% to support the IamWANDA non-profit campaign for women and girls. Please be sure to look at the entire list!
I’ve always loved to sing, dance, and entertain. It all stared at a really young age and my parents have many memorable stories to share. My entrepreneur mum designed stylish outfits from her clothing store to wear for featured performance and my artist architect engineer dad would take me to performances while encouraging me to me to be the best I could possibly be with my art. Music naturally became a part of my life. While in Nigeria I sang at church, in primary and secondary school, with friends and on occasion had some singing and dancing routines with my four siblings. When I moved to Canada to study Fine Arts at York University I also sang in an all-female reggae band. That was my first introduction to formally performing in the music industry.
In the final year of my undergrad studies, my mum died of cancer. I remember all I could think of when I got the call she had passed away, was how I had planned to call her the day before and I never got around to do so. I had to come to terms with what mattered most, wasn’t what she may or may not have said if I had called her the day before, but what she brought to my life during our time together. When I reflected on her strength and resilience through her battle with cancer and her smiles and ability to maintain her glow through tough moments, it made me think of the power of Sunshine. It always comes out to brighten up the day and give a sense of hope, love and feeling.
After graduation, I spent some time as a broadcast graphic designer, I decided to embark on a journey into music as a solo independent Artist. I thought a lot about “Where do I start, what themes to share, what genres to target, what people would want to listen to my lyrics.” My ultimate goal became to focus on sharing and inspiring with 3 main ingredients – Love, Living and Laughter. With hopes that my music will shine rays of sunshine to all listeners.
And so here I am today, with two albums, multiple singles, music videos, awards, nominations, national recognition and international performance experience all of which have been funded independently. It will be a great honor and joy to have you join me in creating my first fan-funded music album!
YOUR PARTICIPATE MEANS THE WORLD TO ME!
In memory of my mother and celebration all mothers who radiate with super sunshine “Mama Sunshine”, I have chosen to support IamWANDA – a non-profit organization established by Tambra Raye Stevenson which stands for women and girls advancing in nutrition dietetics and agriculture. I’m inspired by Tambra’s passion for education and advocacy for healthy living with good nutrition. I believe health is wealth and if we get back to the basis of feeding ourselves with good natural nutrients we surely can reduce and eliminate several diseases and illnesses plaguing our community. Her project is especially dear to my heart because my mother studied dietetics and agriculture and I’m certain that she would equally have as much passion to support this wonderful cause.
