BEVERLY HILLS, April 19, (THEWILL) – TripleMG which houses artistes like Iyanya, Tekno, Selebobo and co just unveiled singer Tonye Garrick as the label's new first lady following the exit of Emma Nyra from the label last year.

Record exec, Ubi Franklin took to Instagram to make the announcement welcoming her to the label. Below is what the label said about her:

“Tonye is a Musical Artist, Songwriter and Creative who has taken the African music industry by storm with her ultra-sensational, sultry vocals and lyrics

Born in England, Tonyé spent most of her childhood and adult years in Paris, Nigeria, and Washington, DC.

From a very young age, she had already begun forging her musical path as she dabbled in dance and theatrical arts both in and outside of school. After obtaining a Bachelors' degree in International Business & Fashion Merchandising from Marymount University, she did a stint in Corporate America. While she reached many heights in her corporate career, her love for music pushed her to reignite her childhood passion.

In 2009, she took a leap of faith and set her sights on achieving her musical dreams. She auditioned for several music reality shows featured on major networks, including Pop stars 2, MTV's Making the Band and many others. After the challenges of these experiences, she decided to carve out her own place in the music and performing arts industry. In 2010, she sang an emotional accapella titled “What About Us,” which captured the hearts of many, and was later used for the Nigerian Youth Presidential debate in 2011. The opportunity emerged as a new beginning for Tonyé; as it allowed her to fully immerse herself into recording her own music.”
