Person Of The Day - ABIADE

Born and bred in the south- east in London of Nigerian Heritage, ABIADE presents an indication of things to come, a versatility one feels is necessary in an ever changing music industry.

He presents “The Warm Up”, a culmination of years of honing his craft and perfecting the deliverance of his voyeuristic mind through lyrics.

Having started writing lyrics before puberty had its way with his voice, ABIADE went through a number of identity crisis, not knowing whether the emerging UK garage scene would be the platform for his talents to blossom or if his first love, the US-centric hip hop was ever going to be able accommodate a small time Londoner with a dream.

Fast forward 10 years of experimentation and openness to recording over any genre and ABIADE has found himself a niche; the inability to say no to any kind of music.
“if I go to a myspace and I like a producer’s beat, bet your pennies I’ll holla at him asking ‘how can I spit over it, how much! I’m too on it for my own good at times! “

“The Warm Up is my proper introduction to everyone, the listeners, the scene, the major labels; they haven’t searched all the nooks and crannies yet, there’s SO much talent left, this CD shows I can do it all from the production to the hooks, from the introspective to the hits, I provide social commentary on a lot of stuff people want to talk about, with sick beats behind it. Listener: hope you enjoy listening as much as I did making it”
