Dele (also known as Dele Akinz) is a 24 year old Nigerian singer/songwriter based in the UK. At the tender young age of eight, Dele wrote his first song and discovered that he had the ability to move an audience with his voice. Inspired by the soulful tones of Boyz II Men’s musical versatility, and coupled with his siblings support and guidance, Dele’s song writing continued to flourish.
In 2008, Dele made it into the underground UK music scene with his debut single ‘EX’, which reached number seven in the MTV Base Music Chart. ‘EX’ also courted a number of rave reviews from radio stations all over the UK. Further releases included ‘F U Right’ and ‘Feel It’.
As an artist, his style is very sensual and reminiscent of Boyz II Men, Blackstreet and Joe just to name a few. His music explores thematic reflections on love, human relationships and passion. If you are a true lover of traditional R&B, then you would definitely love Dele. His brand mashes up his muscular physique, that crossover combination of youth and impending maturity, expressive lyrics and a charismatic fresh style that would appeal to many audiences. Dele defines his music as a mix of R & B, soul and a touch of dance and promises a wow-ing stage performance; having already supported the likes of Dru Hill, Joe, Styles P and Blackstreet in notable venues in the UK. Dele also embarked on an international tour across Atlanta, USA.
