Idris Lawal is T Á D É, a Nigerian born poet and emcee who’s upbringing has seen him live in and immerse himself into the cultures of Doha, Qatar & Cape-Town, South Africa before finally moving to Ottawa to complete his university schooling. He recently graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Marketing & Entrepreneurship degree and is now at Algonquin College in the Music Industry Arts Program.
After having discovered a love for poetry at a young age, specifically lyrics and how words could be put together to convey images; T Á D É started honing his penmanship before deciding to expand on that and learn how music as a whole can be used to either create an experience or escape from one.
His love for music combined with his education and general interest in Marketing has now led to developing appreciation for Marketing and how a creative marketing and branding can not only enhance the experience but also drive home the message imbedded into the music. He is currently putting the finishing touches on his first official EP titled ‘risession’ a 4-song project that touches on life, love and the pursuit of one’s passion
