On a cold December night in 1898 - I was most definitely not around - I wonder what sad songs people listened to...
Anyway, in with the new !
I’m Tega Ethan, a singer/songwriter - I actually consider my self to be a songwriter who happens to sing. I was born in Lagos, Nigeria but changed locations many times, involuntarily and then voluntarily until I became who I am now, an Ibadan-based musician.
I got my first professional gig off Instagram in 2017 to play in Freedom Park, Lagos. After this show I earned the rights to being called a professional musician. I spent the next couple of years writing hundreds of songs, playing a ton of venues, opening for Johnny Drille at his 2019 concert and for The Cavemen in 2020.
I draw inspiration from everything around me, from soul wrenching heartbreaks to cold beverages and when I’m neither singing nor songwriting you’ll find me watching movies or having a conversation with a squirrel.
Carefully put, I’ll probably end up being one of the best songwriters of this century - if Ed Sheeran starts replying my DMs.
Exhilarating... full of emotions... will keep you on the edge of life.
