Rising R&B musician Dolapo’s used to making waves, but until recently, she’s been making them behind the scenes. Providing backing vocals and co-writing MoStack, Tion Wayne, ZieZie and Young T & Bugsey to name a few, she’s now letting herself take centre stage.
Dolapo started writing music from just 14-years-old and it wasn’t long before people were requesting sessions with her. Although at first, she was a very shy young girl, she now has tons of confidence in both herself and her writing ability. She’s said that her main inspirations come from her faith and Nigerian roots but loved So Solid Crew, Ashanti, Lauryn Hill and the Sugababes.
Releasing her first music only last year, North Londoner Dolapo collaborated with UK rapper Hardy Caprio on the tropical track “Something New” and appeared in the “Shine Girl” music video with Stormzy, MoStack and Maya Jama. Keeping the ball rolling, she’s also just dropped a five-track EP, titled A Short Love Story.
It’s a sleek collection with impeccable vocals, but we feel this is only just the beginning for Dolapo.
