Born in North Philadelphia to Nigerian parents Tunji’s first interactions of music came from artist he heard in the house, including Roy Ayers and Fela Kuti. Tunji moved around the city until finally relocating to Blue Bell, Philadelpia where he began to take music seriously at the age of 14.

Tunji released his debut album Missed Calls at just 20 years old--it can only go uphill from here.
