Apple Music today announced the latest featured artist in its Up Next Nigeria emerging artist program as Nigerian-born Afro-pop singer-songwriter, Jaido P (real name Taiwo Olajide Daniel).

"I am as happy as a sandboy to be the latest artist to be featured on Apple Music Up Next in Nigeria. Big thank you to Apple Music for the recognition!”

Born and raised in the bustling city of Lagos, Jaido P graduated from the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University. He rose through the country’s musical ranks, honing his song writing skills to become one of the most sought-after Afro-pop artists on the continent.

Fusing street-inspired and pop-laced Afrobeats melodies with an alternative edge, it was his breakout single “Tesina pot” (2020), featuring prolific rapper Olamide, that laid the foundation for the creation of his debut EP, Shopla. The 6-track EP, available to stream on Apple Music, takes its cue from Jaido’s nickname and tackles weighty topics, from the gap between rich and poor, to how music and fame have changed his life.
