Ifa-tunde releases new project
London-based singer Ifa-tunde Oranmila is preparing to release his latest project, 'Melanin', in April. He is the executive producer for the album, which also features production work from Errol 'Scatta' Bonnick.
As a build-up to the album's release, Ifa-tunde Oranmila has dropped three singles, Hold and Strong, Every Day and Melanin.
Ifa-tunde was born in Camberwell, South London, but he learnt to play musical instruments while at the Alpha Boys School in Jamaica.
At the age of five, he relocated to Banbury in St Catherine with his parents. While at the Alpha Boys School, he learnt music and arts and played the saxophone, clarinet, and flute. His passion for the craft then further developed after his father brought home a sound system.
Upon his return to England in the late 1980s, he began his career as an entertainer with the Mafia Sound System. He later teamed up with Youth Man Promotion where he produced under the pseudonym Winston General, alongside close friend Mikey General.
"I always enjoyed writing and singing songs, especially songs that are meaningful and have a solid message. I'm inspired when my work touches the minds and hearts of people from all over," Ifa-tunde said.
