Nigerian-American singer-songwriter Lékan Tella just released a breathtaking debut single, “Emptiness,” a song in which he reveals his amazingly raw talent and unveils his full vulnerability, on a song that reflects on the feelings that arise when smitten by love.
His unique fusion between 80’s pop and 90’s R&b’s best sonorities instantaneously give him the status of a soon-to-be major artist in the field, thanks to his immaculate voice and vivid inspirations. Coming from two very distinct cultures, Tella spent sleepless nights listening to multiple music genres. He says: “When I first moved to Nigeria in the 90s, I’d write as a way to contain myself and disconnect from the feeling of culture-shock. Every chance I got, I had my ears glued to the radio to discover new sounds. I started writing poems and song lyrics when I was 13”.
An inspiring artist, Tella is just debuting his career in music, and yet it is already clear that his skills and purpose are sharpened like a sword, and we can’t wait to see what he is going to share with us next.
