Sensational Ify is a talented, hard working, & career focused singer/songwriter from Nigeria. Originally born in Warri, Delta State to parents from Imo state, she moved to Lagos in 2007 to work on her dream of becoming a well known & respected performing artist in her own country.
Making use of increasing internet connectivity in Nigeria, Sensational Ify has focused her initial music promotion & marketing in this domain, building up a very respectable fan base not only Nigeria, but in most countries throughout Africa, and even further afield across Europe, the USA, & Asia. Her self-produced “Dirty Girl” album was released for worldwide internet sales in 2010. She is currently on the lookout for other ways to get her music played across Nigeria (& Africa in general), where she feels that current online music sales is still limited to a small “wealthier” minority only.
Having taken time off from local live band performances in 2011 to focus on her personal life, Sensational Ify has, in 2012, been writing, recording & promoting many new singles while preparing a full album to further promote her own unique Naija Hip Hop sound & to claim her place as a genuine, exciting & creative female artist in an otherwise male dominated Naija music environment.
Current activity includes filming the music video for “Gidi Gid” with Clarence Peters, and simultaneously preparing for the release of her newly recorded, social conciousness, song “My Prayer” featuring General Pype, which will also be released along with a music video (produced by Patrick Elis). Further recordings, both solo & featuring known Naija artists, are also underway and will be released as the year progresses.
Thanks to all her fans for the fantastic support & motivating comments received to date on her various websites (facebook, Twitter, YouTube & ReverbNation). It is this kind of response that gives artists the motivation they need to continue in such a tough business.
