Lyta's Career

Lyta, a brilliant singer and songwriter, was spotted by Olamide, the YBNL boss, at a public event when he was blown away by his rapping abilities. He'd summoned him to the stage that day for some freestyles, and he was overjoyed.

He rose to prominence in the entertainment industry after collaborating with Olamide on the song 'Time,' which was another outstanding achievement.

Since breaking into the music industry, he has been releasing success after hit, including Adekunle Gold's Ire cover and Junior Boy's remix of his song Time.

In 2018, Badoo, who is hell-bent on rising by raising others, signed him to his musical label.

Lyta has also collaborated with industry heavyweights such as Davido, and his highly awaited video for the smash tune Monalisa featuring Davido was released in 2019.

So, how did he come up with his stage moniker, Lyta?

"Dj Stramborella gave me the name after seeing me play at a show when people were clapping and shouting. He summoned me to his house the next day and told me he owned a record label in Dublin. When I told him my name was Opeyemi, he urged me to change it to Lyta, and that's how I acquired the name Lyta."

Lyta is like many other artists who want to express themselves in their native dialects, such as Sho Madjozi and Sjava. He categorizes his music as Afro-pop, and he sings in Yoruba since it is the most natural way for him to express himself, but he also has songs that aren't in Yoruba.

His song is influenced by the streets because he can identify to what happens on the streets because he has also gone through them. Despite the fact that he has yet to release an album, he has made a name for himself thanks to the wonderful hits he continues to give his fans.

Despite the fact that he has yet to get an award, he is already receiving the acclaim he deserves at such a young age. 

He was nominated for Best Street-Hip Hop Artiste at the 2019 Heddies Awards Ceremony. In the same year, he was nominated for the City People Music Awards for Most Promising Act of the Year and Best New Act of the Year.

Lyta's Controversy

Lyta's departure from the YNBL label was the subject of many rumors, and fans wanted to know the truth. To clear the air, the YBNL boss appeared.

Olamide released a statement explaining why he isn't pals with music artiste Lyta and allowing him to leave his record label. Lyta told Olamide that he had someone who wants to sign him and that he wants to leave, so he offered him his blessings. Olamide said that although knowing Lyta was lying, he still wished him well, and Lyta then went on to say many bad things about him.

Olamide went so far as to unfollow Lyta on Instagram to remove himself from him. Lyta, on the other hand, later came out with his narrative, and here is what he had to say.
