Nigerian singer, songwriter, photographer Bello born in Ogun State attained a degree in Economics from the University of Lagos, and briefly practised journalism before venturing into the world of photography where she has been applaudably able to build repute as one of the country’s most sought-after photographers. She was the official photographer to former President Goodluck Jonathan during his tenure in office and has a enviable list of clientele.
As a singer, TY Bello first emerged onto Nigeria’s musical landscape as a member of the defunct group KUSH, an acronym for Kinetically Ushering Salvation into Hearts and Homes. Other members of the group were Lara George, Dapo Torimiro and rapper Emem Ema. Kush gained popularity in the early 2000s with the single “Let’s Live Together”; the group managed to release an album before disbanding.
Bello launched her solo career which birthed unforeseeable hits like singles “Greenland”, “Ekundayo”, “This Man”, “Freedom” and “Funmise”.
