Nosa is a Nigerian recording artist, singer, songwriter and performer who was born in Benin City, Edo State in Nigeria.
How did Nosa start his music career?
As a child Nosa who studied Engineering at the University of Benin wanted to be among others an army man, a music producer, footballer, engineer and singer. He was, however, exposed to music at an early age while attending church.
As a member of the local church children’s choir, Nosa developed his talent in music with the influence from the likes of Rhythm and Blues (R&B) group Boyz II men, Fred Hammond and Kim Burrell to Afri-highlife music from Sonny Okosun, Christy Essien-Igbokwe, King Sunny Ade and Onyeka Onwenu.
Nosa released his debut single ‘Always Pray for You’ in November 2009 under Chocolate City. He also secured several endorsements among them a partnership with Nokia in May 2014 in the release of the song ‘Love Calling’ and a deal with Unilever in the same month.
In a past interview, Nosa said: “his aim with his music is to create a bridge between music genres while making sure the gospel aspect of it is on a fore-front platform just as the other genres like a unique merger of sorts: creatively superimposing a soul tune on a high-life beat, a high-life verse with a rock-y chorus or singing 'Pidgin' English with an R n B flavour while proclaiming an inspirational and uplifting message to his listeners.”
Nosa has also been featured by several artists among them Zee, Masterkraft and Ice Prince. He released his debut, and the only album h has titled ‘Open Doors’ in 2014.
