Meet Samuel – The Performing Artiste


Samuel Adedotun Adesanwo, also known as Boy Nova, is a performing artiste, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and music producer.

“I started singing, writing music and playing the piano at a very young age. I went into it fully when I got into Unilag by participating in hall week performances and featuring on cyphers. It was also in school I learned how to produce beats with FL Studio.”

Samuuel draws inspiration from within. “Also, my girlfriend and the desire to be great and impact the world through my music inspire me.”

Launching his single this year served as a confidence booster for him. “The most recent one is that I just launched my debut single titled ‘Down For You’ on June 23, 2018. It’s a simple Afrobeats/Afropop love song, I also wrote the lyrics and made the beat myself and I have been getting a lot of positive feedback. It’s really inspiring. The download link is in my Instagram bio @theboynova.”

Now, he is hoping for networks “that will help me get my music heard by as many people as possibe, that will help brand me as an artiste and put me out there.”

Concerning youth empowerment, he says, “We need more education and enlightenment. The level of ignorance in Nigeria is high and this is the root of all our problems. The youth need to work harder to empower themselves.”
