Abiodun Koya

The Washington, DC metropolitan area is one of the most culturally diverse areas of the United States. This is one of the reasons why I love it here. This diversity brings with it a wealth of talent from different countries and cultures. For instance, my wife recently introduced me to Abiodun Koya, a young, beautiful opera singer from Nigeria. Now, there are many groups of hard working Nigerians represented in the DC metropolitan area, but very few of them are classically trained opera singers like Ms. Koya. Abiodun is also an actor, model and poet.

I found her love for the Arts and her personality to be both refreshing and inspirational. She is a bright young woman who is passionate about her work and the empowerment of African women in the Diaspora. Abiodun or “Abby” as she is affectionately known attributes her success and accomplishments to hard work, prayer and steadfast devotion. Abiodun has been featured in national and international publications including Africa Vibes Magazine. Please visit Abiodun Koya’s website for more information, poetry and great photos.

World song

It is easy to love
Just love me as you love yourself
Then will doors of joy fling open
Peace, love, and care
That’s what this wayfaring stranger needs

Show me your heart
Show me love
My heart is weary
Show me kindness
Even after I close my eyes to lay finally
Give me unconditional love
Until then will my heart stop bleeding
