Project Fame 2008 winner and ‘Kukere’ crooner, Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk, also known as Iyanya, has signed a new artiste to his record label Made Men Music Group.
Iyanya posted on his Instagram page a picture of his new signing with a caption congratulating her and revealing to fans and critics why his management decided to take her on.
In his lengthy caption, the celebrity said
Tonye is a Musical Artist, Songwriter and Creative who has taken the African music industry by storm with her ultra-sensational, sultry vocals and lyrics.
Born in England, Tonyé spent most of her childhood and adult years in Paris, Nigeria, and Washington, DC.
From a very young age, she had already begun forging her musical path as she dabbled in dance and theatrical arts both in and outside of school. After obtaining a Bachelors’ degree in International Business & Fashion Merchandising from Marymount University, she did a stint in Corporate America. While she reached many heights in her corporate career, her love for music pushed her to reignite her childhood passion
In 2009, she took a leap of faith and set her sights on achieving her musical dreams. She auditioned for several music reality shows featured on major networks, including Pop stars 2, MTV’s Making the Band and many others.
After the challenges of these experiences, she decided to carve out her own place in the music and performing arts industry. In 2010, she sang an emotional acapella titled ‘What About Us’, which captured the hearts of many, and was later used for the Nigerian Youth Presidential debate in 2011. The opportunity emerged as a new beginning for Tonyé; as it allowed her to fully immerse herself into recording her own music.
