Performing Artist. Singer. Producer
Anthony Nwabueze, or popularly known as TEEMANAY, a.k.a "Young Icon" is an Afrobeat and Dancehall singer from The Igbo speaking part (Ibusa) of Delta State Nigeria. He was born on May 18th in Delta State and grew up partly in Delta and Lagos, Nigeria. He graduated from the Department of Human Anatomy from Delta State University Abraka, and then relocated to South Africa to further his studies in Community Health as encouraged by his parents. However, Teemanay saw it as an opportunity to capitalize on his long growing passion for music. He decided to make official in November 2014 with a debut single titled "Girl For The Night", which he submitted for a radio competition in one of South Africa's popular radio station called UJ Fm 95.4, and TEEMANAY won the award for Best New Artist.
That moment gave birth to the affirmation of his decision to follow his passion to the ends of the globe. Since then, TEEMANAY has dropped only a few singles (Gra Gra, King, Angel, We Can Freestyle), but recorded so many that have yet to be released. He decided to take his time to study the Afrobeat and Dancehall sound which he infuses in his tune and terms it "AfroDancehall." His love for "Afro Dancehall" pushed him to travel far and wide in search of a suitable environment that allows him to maximize his potential as an energetic performer and great singer with vocal dexterity. TEEMANAY hopes to bridge the gap between Afrobeat and Dancehall in totality as he travels through his musical journey.
