DESOLA is an inspirational singer, songwriter, music artist, and worship leader.

The MOBO featured an award-winning music artist who was born into a non-Christian home but always felt that there was something unique about music that touched the heart. This feeling no doubt had a massive impact on her life as a teenager and her love of music grew and the desire to sing continued till this day. Having sung with music groups and church choirs, it was only a few years ago that she yielded to the unrelenting call into the music industry. It was at this point that a desire to become an inspirational Christian, gospel artist was birthed. Her life was filled with stories that were a mix of joy, tears, and laughter. This describes the challenges and victories that she has been through and the recovery through the relenting love of God.  She captures these experiences to songs to inspire her and help others to discover the greatness and sovereignty of God. “The first inspiration comes when God spoke in songs on doing His will to fly high above any troubled waters”. This is a revelation God brought to her on desiring a wing like a dove and to fly away from all the struggles to a place to rest. She released her debut album “Rest” in 2014 a 12-track debut album. This was immediately followed by a second album “Intimacy” in 2018 both albums have won several awards including Critic Choice Gospel Artist of the Year at the Gospel Touch award in 2016 and 2018. She later won Best gospel at the BEFFTA award in 2019 among many others over the years. Desola has released visual videos alongside single releases.

Her songwriting is heartfelt.

She shared the same stage with Erica Campbell of the Mary Mary and Annastasia Baker at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. She has also had two top 3 tracks in the UK Christian Chart as well as being featured on the Mobo.com website as one to watch.  She desires to spread love, hope, and faith to many lives through her music.
