Andy Okoro is a 22year old born and raised in the city Warri, Delta State, Nigeria. He is the 4th of 6 children in the family. He has always loved music growing up and was in the church choir with his twin brother and older sister until he was 14 years old. Taking a break from music was not so much an option for him as other aspects of his life took over. At the age of 16, Andy and his twin brother set out to Canada to further their education in engineering. He again rediscovered his love for the craft when faced with life’s difficulty that involved someone really close to him. Andy had been listening to certain instrumentals and one morning awoke with a melody to a particular favourite going off in his head. He quickly ran into the bathroom to write down the lyrics. That morning in the bathroom, he wrote the first song he was ever going to record and there after “Transparent” the EP was born. The EP had no particular correlation to the events taking place in his life at the time but was more of a representation or a book keep of how he had processed emotions over the years. Regardless of the difference in content between what was going on in his life and the message of his music, it still served as a very good outlet for his emotions and as he says, believes it to be very therapeutic to his situation. He says “I would not change a single thing, as I believe that every single detail has led me to this exact moment of true self expression and freedom.” Since then Andy has gone on to make over three singles that are to be released during the summer 2018.
