Advance Warning is a journey to discovering new talented acts across the Nigerian Music Scene. Here we forecast the future of Nigerian Centre stage artistes. These are the ones to look out for in the nearest future.

Falana was raised by Nigerian parents in Brampton, Canada, and her sound began falling together in her home. Despite describing her parents as “non-musical”, they introduced her to the sounds of Fela Kuti, and King Sunny Adé. Noting pop’s prevalence at the time, she recalls writing love songs in the “traditional pop” style that she often heard on the radio. 

But it was upon listening to Lauryn Hill that her powerful and honest writing style really began to take form. As she got into high school, her musical tastes expanded. Sade, Maxwell, Amy Winehouse and Erykah Badu were added to her playlists alongside Nina Simone, Etta James, and Duke Ellington.

While still in the process of exploring her artistic voice, Falana decided to travel to Havana, Cuba. It was in Cuba she spent a year, performing, developing and eventually recording her debut EP “THINGS FALL TOGETHER”. The album includes songs like:

She credits her time in Cuba for leading her to hone a sound that she calls “Soul Fusion”, her very own blend of jazz, soul, afrobeat, and R&B.
