Abiodun Koya is one of the very few pro­fes­sion­ally trained opera singers from not just Nige­ria, but the African con­ti­nent. So well has her ca­reer grown that she has sang to Pres­i­dents, world lead­ers and even sang at the White House dur­ing the Demo­cratic Na­tional Con­ven­tion. Her beloved fa­ther in­tro­duced clas­si­cal mu­sic to her at the ten­der age of three. To­day, Bio­dun has es­tab­lished her­self as an all-round artiste with pas­sion, pur­pose and an il­lus­tri­ous voice that is pow­er­ful and in­spir­ing. She spent a riv­et­ing af­ter­noon with FUNKE BABS-KUFEJI talk­ing about how im­pact­ful clas­si­cal mu­sic has been in the lives of many.
