Simultaneously while pursuing her music career, she obtained her Bachelors of Fine Arts Honors Degree in Visual Arts Communication Design. The degree opened doors for her to work at a FOX affiliate and Warner Bros. where she designed motion and still graphics, on-air promotions, marketing and public affairs projects in Baltimore, MD. During her time in Maryland, TolumiDE released ‘Specialty’containing the hit single, ‘Because You Know’. The single was featured on The Green October – Volume 1 mix project and he music video garnered airplay on MTV Base Africa, Channel O, Nigezie TV and a umber of online media outlets.

In addition to being a sought-after vocalist, TolumiDE sings with the Hallelujazz Project, and Toby Foyeh and Orchestra Africa, and renders the Nigerian, Canadian or American National Anthems when requested.

TolumiDE is thrilled about her first full length release, ‘My Love’. Songs like the incredibly moving “More Than You’ll Ever Know” and the funky grooves of “What I’d Like To Be” easily demonstrate how talented this young woman is. The title tune, “My Love” is an exciting, breathtaking fusion of African rhythms, electronica and urban pop.  She’s excited about the project and feels that her fans will love it as well.

I love to dance, too, so I knew I had to get some danceable party songs on there! It’s definitely a good world music mix with elements of Reggae and Jazz. I’m really excited with what I have to share.”
