Chicago’s own RnB sensation, born Mariam Temilola Savage in Chicago Illinois to Nigerian parents Tajudeen Adeshina Savage and Surat Adeola Savage, was raised 8 years in Surulere Lagos Nigeria. She introduced her first single onto the Nigerian Music Scene, called “You want it” back in 2008. Not sure if she was ready to storm through, she held back and later worked on a second single called “Becha” featuring Matt Sesoo in mid 2010. Lola Savage later decided to give the Nigerian Music scene a try.
Her life story as an artist/performer begun at the age of 4, Lola grew up singing in her church’s choir where she strengthened her vocal ability with her sisters learning music’s “Tonic sol-fa” in depth, and at the age of 18, was doing talent shows, singing and dancing in high school. In 2002 at the age of 19, Lola Savage then auditioned and was picked to join a well known local r&b group in Chicago along side 3 other singers including her elder sister and actress Sheri Savage. They fought their way through the musical storm and grew chances to perform for major record labels in the likes of Virgin, Columbia, Jive and Epic records at some of the “SIR studios” in New York. Missing out on a welcoming deal with Epic records due to personal issues within the entertainment company signed to at the time, she put her first love aside and focused on another venture. Lola then pursued modeling with the “back then” Elite Modeling Agency Chicago, now officially known as Factor models, to engage in strengthening her other hobbies.
Family, friends and fans did not want Lola Savage to give up. Though Lola was usually the life of the spiritual choruses at her church, everyone believed her harmonious voice would bring her success in music. Lola tried climbing up that musical ladder by working on a hopeful feature with well known artist/producer “eLDee”, a released feature with r&b singer “Ajasa”, and a released feature with Chicago’s own hip hop/soul sensation “H2O Soul” to spread her interest regained in working on her first love. Through a well-formed sing-a-long melody, written by one of the most creative singer/song-writers based in the United States named Keno Kennet, Lola records “Becha.” A song that exudes emotion. A song that many can relate to.
After putting music in the back burner again, Lola now comes back to us fresh and with more dedication. With her drive and ambition that had never left. she is currently working on an album and released a feature hit with the label Moceaser’s own pop star “Chibbz” called “Iwo Ni Mofe” downloadable on I-Tunes, and can be listened to on Nigerian Music Blog sites such as Gidilounge.com, Notjustok.com, and many others.
Please stay tuned for more great music brought to you by none other than yours truly.
