OLUMIUYIWA OSINUGA aka NOMORELOSS was born in Lagos western Nigeria in the 70's. He attended A.D.R.A.O . International school, VI, Lagos for his secondary and primary education. His basic background played a huge role in his appreciation for classic music. He proceeded to study the rudiments of music from one of Nigeria's greatest instrumentalist and jazz saxophonist KUNLE AJAYI.

He started out in the world of entertainment as a rapper while in high school and later on moved on to master of ceremony at various events. An accomplished stand -up comedian, mc, musical video director as well as television host, he was also a producer of both music and television programs.

He directed musical videos for artists such as LEXY DOO, JAGUNLABI, JAH BORNE, CIMION, the gospel sensation FOLAKE UMOSEN and played project coordinator and producer for the video CD of RUGGED MAN’S THY KINGDOM COME ALBUM.

With role models such as EBENEZER OBEY, KING SUNNY ADE, FELA ANIKULAPO KUTI, ORLANDO OWOH, ORLANDO JULIUS, IK DAIRO, KING WASIU AYINDE MARSHAL{KWAM 1}, it is easy to see where and how this music researcher /songwriter/singer draws his inspiration.

With a fusion of R&B, pop, jazz, reggae and jazz with an underlying tone of west African high life, his conviction that art must take material from its environment has led him to create a style that is unique in its appeal but most certainly soulful in its delivery which has been labelled....NEW- HIGH-LIFE.

Gone too soon! Rest in peace.
