“Despite life’s challenges, I believe in overcoming them and achieving victory. I hope ‘Golden Skin’ uplifts and encourages every listener. I firmly believe that regardless of your circumstances, there’s a path to triumph.”
Raised in London to Nigerian parents, Olaedo, which means ‘gold’ in Nigerian Igbo language, discovered her passion for singing at an early age, performing in church, weddings, and stage plays.
Her songwriting prowess developed through reading psalms, Motown influences, and personal experiences.
During her formative years in Nigeria, she immersed herself in diverse musical genres, drawing inspiration from artists like Cece Winans, Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson, Blanca, and Mary Mary.
Returning to the UK, she graced the stage with Peobo Bryson at Cadogen Hall at a mere 14 years old.
Encouraged by David Gest and the former manager of Roy Ayers/Deniece Williams, Olaedo embarked on her musical journey, driven by her passion for music.
