adaolisa uses her diverse cultural experiences to weave together music that incorporates several genres, consciously deciding not to stick to one alone. She grew up in the City of Gold, otherwise known as Johannesburg, constantly surrounded by music that spoke truth to power. She learned to love music at a young age thanks to her father, who filled her home with the vocals of Brenda Fassie, Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Fela Kuti, and Luther Vandross, to name a few. Her musical adventure, however, began when she spent many hours in her best friend’s bedroom recording and writing songs. Her first single, “Bae Privileges,” was published in 2019, and she has since written and co-produced a slew of more catchy melodies in the styles of Neosoul, Pop, and R&B.
