Singer/Songwriter TolumiDE to Release New Single “Throwback” on Jan. 15th, 2021

January 10, 2021: With so many challenges wrapped up in 2020, one can bring light into the present moment simply by remembering. In Afro-pop/soul singer/songwriter TolumiDE’s upcoming single, she embraces the ‘good ole days’ with gratitude, cherishing memories to help lighten up the moment. After connecting online with mates from her secondary school days in Nigeria, she was inspired by a time with fewer cares, when she remembers “dancing in the sun.” Set to release January 15, 2021, “Throwback” celebrates “ayoola,” the joy of wealth, which includes the richness of moments.

“This year, there were a lot of moments in dialogue and zoom hang outs where I really appreciated the ‘good ole days’ of not having any major cares or worries of the world,” TolumiDE reflects. “It felt very good to have cool memories that have shaped who I am today.”

Recorded in collaboration with Terry Poindexter from two separate locations, “Throwback” was produced remotely with TolumiDE recording her vocals from home. During the early days of quarantine, her acoustic album, “Mama Sunshine,” resonated with her audience for its nostalgic themes; these included the beauty of brighter days, themes of love, self-assurance and overcoming challenges. Continuing an upbeat, groovy-dance feel with an R&B/Afropop flavor, “Throwback” features lyrics in English and Yoruba, alluding to TolumiDE’s Nigerian heritage.

TolumiDE’s music has been described as “a big blend of Afro-pop, funky reggae, neo-soul and jazz injecting her African heritage using bilingual lyrics, into a friendlier foundation of melodic pop and R&B balladry.” Currently, she is a voting Grammy Member with the Recording Academy and Non-profit Afropolitan Youth who are the hosts of FestAfrica. Her accolades include winning the Best R&B Female Artist at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards, opening for Les Nubians at the Howard Theatre, opening for Salif Keita, singing with Toby Foyeh and Africa Orchestra at the Toronto Jazz Festival. In addition, she has had the opportunity to headline a show at the Legendary Blues Alley in Washington D.C.

In spite of the success she’s experienced in her music career, TolumiDE is most inspired by her upbringing, cultural heritage and the loved ones who have supported her along the way. Through the golden moments reflected in her lyrics through which she wishes to “bring back those days…” she longs for her listeners to experience this feeling.

In TolumiDE’s words, “I would love listeners to be happy, share their stories like photos and videos of cherished memories and possibly dance along to the song. Together, we can celebrate and give thanks for the simple things.”
