Indigenous gospel musician, Lanre Teriba entered stardom in 2000 with his debut album Atorise (Reformer). While spending most of his childhood at church this Ogun State native discovered his vocal gift.
At eighteen, Teriba left home to pursue an Accounting Degree at Federal Poly Chapter Offa in Kwara State. There he joined the university’s Kegites Club where he composed and performed music which brought the club members closer to God.
After attaining his degree, he searched for a job for five years to no avail. Teriba decided to use his gift thus he began composing while struggling to raise money for a demo. In 1998 during his pursuit of establishing his music career he came across a promoter, Tunde Olokodana. Olokodana instantly fell in love with Teriba’s demo and he invested in him.
Since then Teriba continues to maintain a unique standard with his fusion of indigenous beats with other sounds called ‘Tungba Gospel’.
To date he has released 17 albums including the latest ‘Winners Praise.’ Additionally, he remains the most traveled artiste within his genre as he continues to tour across multiple countries in Africa, North America and Europe.
