4Qua generously offers us his talent whilst constantly inventing and upgrading his style. He has a fluid acrobatic vocal vibe and a unique talent for performance / song writing and production. Born in Lagos to an aviation executive father and a college teacher mum, 4Qua left home alone to permanently settle in Europe. In the UK he led a bohemian lifestyle for several years (forming several bands whilst moonlighting various odd jobs to maintain himself and support his art). His music can be best described as a fusion of raw Hip bluesy elements and edgy funk new age rock rhythms, his African roots and soulful music can also be considered a major influence on his sound.
4Quas music has been featured on a host of sites/ radio stations worldwide, his song BBD was recently included in Toni and guys video play list and a sample of his music was previously converted to a mobile phone ring tone by a UK company, he has collaborated and has been featured on/ off stage as a guest artist on a host of projects. A part time photographer, paints on canvass and murals and he edits/makes short films (some can be seen on YouTube) in his spare time he continues to develop a portfolio of his art in various media

“4Qua is a massively talented singer, songwriter and artist who gave me the pleasurable job of remixing one of his songs in several styles. His voice and delivery can go from intimate/warm/smooth/subtle to edgy/vital/raw and back again with apparent ease. Engaging and always pleasant. I found I could build a track around him with little effort, but he definitely commands centre stage. Anywhere else just doesn’t do him justice. So many great possibilities with his sound.
4Qua is a Stillinterstella artist and is distributed to the world via Blue Pie.
