Hey upper fam, welcome to another week of spotlight. This week, we spotlight on a young, talented singer and songwriter.

.

Guys meets Oluwapelumi Olorunda, popularly known as RUNDA. Born 1999, in popular area of Agege, Lagos state.

His quest into the music industry begun at the young age whilst still in secondary school.

.

Runda describes his sound as “Afrovibe”, because he wants his fans to vibe and feel good whenever his song is being played; and transcends them to a better place.

As a young chap who was passionate about doing music, he was influenced by the likes of 2baba, Michael Jackson, Rkelly.

.

Runda’s breakout track was with dj Neptune. Both creatives met up at one of runda’s studio session, where Neptune heard one of his records and the rest can be said to be history. Prior to the release of “bembe” Runda had a ditched out a single “fire can’t cool” and “sing”the year before.
