Shola Allyson-Obaniyi
came into limelight with the hit album Eji Owuro (2003), which was the
soundtrack album for a film of the same name. After Eji Owuro , she
released other albums like Gbe Je F’ori and Im’oore . Her popular songs
include: “Eji Owuro” “Obinrin Ni Mi”, “Aseye”, “Isinmi” amongst
others. Apart from being a singer, she is also a voice coach, counsellor
and a consultant. 
Allyson was born in Ikorodu , Lagos State in the early 1970s. She had her primary education at Anglican Primary School,Ikorodu, after which she attended Shams-el-deen Grammar School, Ikorodu for her secondary education. She subsequently attended Government Technical College, Agidingbi, Ikeja , where she studied Business Studies and obtained an NBTE Certificate. 
In 1997, she gained admission into The Polytechnic, Ibadan to study Music Technology, majoring in Voice and minoring in Music. She acquired a Higher National Diploma (HND) degree with a Upper Credit.
Allyson started her career as a back-up singer in the late 1980s, when she was only thirteen. She later
became a professional back-up singer and worked with musicians such
as: Yinka Ayefele, Gbenga Adeboye , Pasuma, Obesere and Daddy Showkey.
The opportunity to make her first album Eji Owuro, came when she met a
man with a movie script in a public bus. The man initiated a
conversation with Allyson, telling her about a film shoot he just
concluded, titled “Orekelewa “. Allyson was eventually called to sing a
soundtrack for the film, which led to the change in the title of the
film to “Eji Owuro”. When Eji Owuro the film, was released, the studio
decided to make a full music album for the film. The album, upon
release, became a huge success commercially and critically, launching
Allyson into the music industry.
Allyson got married in March
2003. She met her husband, Toyin Obaniyi in the church choir. Together,
they have 3 children: Ayobami, Mopelola and Obafunmiwo.
We are proud to celebrate this Nigerian musician and songwriter. May her career continue to blossom.
