Life and career
Nosa Omoregie, hails from Benin City, Edo State and studied Engineering in UNIBEN.
Nosa started out in the children’s choir in church and is majorly influenced by gospel singers like Fred Hammond and Kim Burrell and the noted R n B group Boyz II men. He later got to love jazz and soul music and then rock, for the simplicity of it. He is also greatly influenced by Afro-Highlife.
Nosa’s aim with his music is to create a bridge between music genres while making sure the gospel aspect of it is on a fore-front platform just as the other genres i.e a unique merger of sorts: creatively superimposing a soul tune on a high-life beat, a high-life verse with a rock-y chorus or singing ‘Pidgin’ English with an R n B flavor while proclaiming an inspirational and uplifting message to his listeners.
In May 2014, he partnered with Nokia for the release of his song “Love is Calling”. On 16 May 2014, The Punch Newspaper reported that Nosa signed an endorsement deal with Unilever.
