Moving to Maryland shortly after to be closer to her dad, younger siblings and work as a Graphic Artist for the city’s FOX – CW affiliate Television Station did not deter her from singing but fueled her passion to simultaneously pursue music as a second career. TolumiDE, a York University graduate, Best Female R&B recipient for Nigeria Entertainment Awards and former Soul singer for four time Canadian Reggae Music Award nominated group ‘Women Ah Run Tings’ got her big break as a solo artist after releasing her album and the accompanying Music Video, for the title track ‘My Love’ which received rotation numerous Urban television media Africa and Europe and earned numerous award recognitions including Channel O Music Video Awards (South Africa) Most Gifted RnB nomination.
