Sweet singing and adorable music star, Oyenike Laoye-Oturu, popularly known as Nikki Laoye is one talent who has charmed Africa and Europe with her voice.
An award winning singer who does not want to be remembered for her music or awards alone but dearly desire the Universe around her to think and remember the less-privileged and physically challenged through projects like, ‘Voice of Refugees’ in Southwest Nigeria. A project she holds even above her music.
Nikki, had the divine fortune of world renown music producer, Cobhams Asuquo, as her next door neighbour who influenced and shaped her music that made her the enviable woman she is today. “Of a truth, the above is not what Cobhams reminds and represents in me.” Who then is Cobhams?
” I had the eternal and undeserving blessing and grace of being Cobhams’ neighbour and I learnt a lot from him. Seeing that he was blind and never felt concerned about it, I asked myself, how and when I looked around, I saw that it is because of the love and support he has from family and friends that turned him into a music maestro instead of a beggar. From that moment, my eyes were opened to the need to fight and defend the blind” the petite beauty concluded.
