Oladapo David Olajide, better known as Dapo Tuburna, is an Afrobeat musician who was born in Lagos, Nigeria, on February 1st, 1992. He is renowned for his vocal prowess and strength as a recording artist, his poise and charisma as a performing artist, and his talent for telling stories as a songwriter.

The last of five children, Dapo Tuburna grew up in Oshodi, a suburban district of Lagos, Nigeria. Great musicians like Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, Damian Marley, Femi Kuti, and 2Face Idibia had a big impact on him. At age 12, he wrote and recorded his debut song, “First Foundation,” with his uncle serving as producer.

He attended the F.A.A.N Staff Primary School in Lagos, continued his education at the Nigerian Navy Secondary School Government School in Abeokuta, spent three (3) years studying physics and electronics at the Redeemers University in Osun, and then departed to pursue a professional music career.

The music of legends like Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, Damian Marley, Femi Kuti, and 2Face Idibia had a big impact on Dapo Tuburna as a child.

Dapo Tuburna released his debut mixtape, “Officer On Duty,” in 2013. In the hopes that it would serve as the demo he required to secure a record deal, which did not occur at the time, he created this collection of both original songs and covers.

He joined together with other Ten Stringz Music School students to form his own band, which he called the Officers Band, and they began playing at various underground concerts in Lagos while he was still working on the mixtape.

He met Nigerian producer Chopstix in 2015, who opted to include him on the tune “Sai Baba” with up-and-coming musicians like Dremo, Ceeza, D’Nyra, and Ichaba after hearing him freestyle and listening to several songs from the mix tape. The success of that song encouraged Dapo Tuburna to release additional music, thus in March 2016, he collaborated with up-and-coming producer EOD Wande to create the song “Jesi.”

In 2016, Dapo Tuburna signed a management contract with The Zone Agency and released the song “Nothing.”

On his YouTube channel, the “Way Up” docuseries chronicles his rise to fame as a musician and performer.

Dapo Tuburna secured a record deal with Tinny Entertainment, the label that Ycee, a famous rapper, founded, in January 2017.
