2009 Canadian Radio Music Award nominee for the Best Urban/ R&B single, Nigerian-born Di’ja has signed a record deal with Don Jazzy’s Mavin Record.
Di’ja who won the 2008 Best New Artiste award at the Beats Award joined other super stars on the label.
Announcing the new arrival, Mavin Records’ CEO, Don Jazzy described Di’ja as eclectic sensation and dynamic new act.
His words; “Di’Ja represents the new generation of Nigerian music. She is versatile and adaptable. No experience in the studio with her is ever same as the last. Our fans, friends and good music lovers are in for an interesting musical journey planned ahead”.
Di’ja’s first official single under Marvin, ‘Yaro’ is an up-tempo celebration of love and commitment against all odds. The song features an ethnic twist that infuses Hausa and Krio dialects in honour of her Nigerian and Sierra Leonean roots.
Di’Ja who is set to dominate the competitive world of entertainment in Africa and beyond, will be joining an increasingly formidable team which include Dr Sid, Tiwa Savage, D’ Prince and Don Jazzy.
The new discovery whose full name is Hadiza Di’Ja Bell is a multi talented singer, song-writer, visual artist and humanitarian. She holds degrees in Biology and Psychology, but it is music that always coursed through her veins. It is the talent that she is now about to share across and beyond.
