Tolu wasn't supposed to enter music, but, against the grain of his country, he did just that. Born into a Nigerian culture that regards white-collar professions the norm, Tolu disregarded typical career routes and instead focused on where his passions truly lied: making music and appreciating sounds. Not a single person in Tolu's family had any experience making music, but, rather than let that stop him, he took it as a chip to self-learn all he knows now. Then, at the age of eleven, he and his family journeyed to the States, and, from his interactions there, he became TOULOUSE, the soul-protruding artist he is known as today.
Fast-forward to the present day, and, not only is TOULOUSE equipped to make impactful music, but he can proudly count the likes of Elton John, Zane Lowe, and others as fans of his name. With first single "So I Know You Care," TOULOUSE graced the top spot of viral charts. Now, with a debut project coming, Tolu's ready to give more resonating sounds, and, through his chosen themes of success, universal love, and wellness, it seems all the new music will match the power his earlier music had.
