Lyta is a young promising artist. Although he’s shy and new to the camera, there’s this air of confidence behind all the shyness.
He is as good as what the label boss claims and no doubt he is truly a force to reckon with in the industry going by his countless number of hits.
He once revealed to the public in an interview that he is from a poor background and that he got into music to take care of his blind mother and father who isn’t doing much economically.
He came to the entertainment limelight after featuring Olamide in a song, ‘Time‘ which was another awesome piece of work.
Since he stepped into the music scene he has been dropping hits back to back including Ire cover by Adekunle Gold and the remix of his song Time with Junior boy.
Badoo, who is bent on rising by raising others got him signed into his record label in 2018.
Lyta has also worked with the industry greats like Davido and he dropped his highly anticipated video to hit single Monalisa featuring Davido in 2019.
So how did he get the name Lyta, which is his stage name?
“The name was given to me by Dj Stramborella, he saw me at a show performing and people were clapping and shouting. The day after, he invited me to his house, told me he has a record label in Dublin and asked for my name, I told him my name was Opeyemi and he asked me to change it to Lyta, so that’s how I got the name Lyta.”
His music is inspired by the streets and this is because the things that happen on the streets he can relate to as he’s been through the streets too. Although he has not yet released an album, he’s managed to make a name for himself with the great hits that he keeps giving his fans.
