Teeto - Fresh Boy Sturvs!

Oluwatoyin Oluwatitofunmi Salako a.k.a Teeto grew up like many Nigerian children; he attended Federal Government College, Ijanikin and the University of Lagos.

Rap for him, was a sub-conscious build up from the late 80’s; an era where his older brothers took him through a mock course, he calls ‘Rap 101’, which involved him listening to the likes of Erik B, Rakim, Run DMC, LL Cool J, Cool Moe Dee, Kool G, Big Daddy Kane et cetera. He was particularly enthralled by Notorious B.I.G, Nas and Jay Z as time went by. After many years of discovering and honing his rap skills, he developed a perfect blend that allowed him express all the sounds he had acquired from his ‘would-be’ mentors. He did a lot of underground mixtapes while in university; he’d record songs and sell them with the support of close friends and numerous fans.

In 2008, Teeto won the Nigerian leg of the Sprite/Channel O Emcee Africa Contest and that opened up a new phase in his music career. Since then, Teeto has performed alongside many top rated music acts and featured on several songs. ‘Oshamo’ is officially his first mainstream single. It was produced by and also features Tha Suspect {CAPital Hill Music}. Although it’s just about a week old online, it’s already enjoying impressive reviews and is highly anticipated to hit the radio and club airwaves soon.
