Born Olusegun Osaniyi, he coined the stage name Lord of Ajasa during his university school days in Ondo state.
Lord of Ajasa made his debut in the entertainment industry with the track ‘Ma Yi Lo’ in 2000.
The success of this single led to the release of his debut album titled “It’s Too Much”.
In 2005, under Platinum Records, he released another rave single “Otiya”.
Ajasa has headlined and featured in various top events in Nigeria and won the Best Rap Indigenous Category of the Afro Hip Hop Society Awards in 2001.
His second album, ‘Second turning By the Right’ was released in 2008. Prior to the album’s release, Ajasa had dropped a hit single ‘Le Fenu So’ featuring 9ice and produced by ID Cabasa.
He was recognised at the City People Music Award “Hall Of Fame” in 2018 for his remarkable contribution to the music industry.
In January 2019, it was revealed that Lord of Ajasa was diagnosed with peptic ulcer. Veteran rapper Alariwo made a public plea to colleagues and fans of Ajasa for help. And the ailing rapper was quickly supported by the likes of Gbenga Adeyinka, ID Cabasa, Jah Bless, Ice K (of Artquake), 9ice and Olamide.
“I almost let go, I felt like I couldn’t take life anymore but God’s mercy kept me. Emi naa re Oluwa, thank You for divine healing Lord. I’m forever grateful Oluwa,” Ajasa said shortly after his near-death experience.
Widely recognized as one of the pioneers of Yoruba rap before Dagrin and Olamide, Lord of Ajasa infused humour in his rap.
He is married to Olufunmilayo and the couple is blessed with two handsome boys.
Following his recovery, Ajasa has recently been seen on stage with 9ice performing his evergreen single ‘Le Fenu So’.
We look forward to hearing new music from him now that he’s fully recovered.
