TY Bello - Green Land
TY was a member one of Nigeria’s most celebrated urban gospel band- Kush. Her dark eyes, raspy alto voice and her big hair are unmistakable. Apart from music, TY is also an internationally acclaimed portrait photographer. The colours, shades and textures which she captures in her photographs are expressed in her music as well.
TY spared no expense with Green Land. Each song on the album is the uninhibited expression of an artist in an otherwise inhibiting environment. From love, to family to nation, TY bore her soul in words that are bound to capture the hearts of all who listen. She wrote the title track for her countrymen to levitate from a place of despair to a place of hope.
TY is a multifaceted young woman. She stages an annual photography exhibition to raise funds for orphans across the country. She is also a Director of Link-a-child; an NGO dedicated to propagating information on orphanages in Nigeria and soliciting sponsorship on their behalf. Through the songs in her album, TY seeks to take fans through the journey of her life and the lessons she has learnt on that journey.
Here is her debut solo effort.
