Lyta was born on July 4, 2001, in Kwara State, Nigeria. Lyta, from a low-income family, is the second child of his parents with an older brother who is several years older than him.
Lyta also comes from an Islamic family and, when he was a child, attended an Arabic school where he learned to recite the Qur’an and other Islamic practices.
Lyta spent his childhood and adulthood in Lagos, where he received his primary and secondary education, and has so far attended no university or higher education institution.
Lyta started singing at the age of 13 after discovering his talent for music, and for someone to start making music at such a young age, it was clear that he was driven by passion.
In February 2018, Lyta signed a recording contract signed with the label YBNL Nation, owned by popular rapper and singer Olamide. Lyta got signed to the record label after the remix of his song “Time,” which he did with the CEO of YBNL, which brought Lyta to the limelight.
Lyta left the YBNL record label in 2019 and said it was because his father told him that he had gotten sponsors who wanted to invest in his music, and that made him leave. However, Olamide did not say much about Lyta’s departure, but only wished him the best and success in his musical career. After that, Olamide stopped following the young artist on Instagram, and, according to him, he did it only to take away his bad energy and bad vibrations.
Later in 2019, Lyta released another first studio song titled “Monalisa” under the DMG label, with the song’s remix in collaboration with DMW boss Davido, who sponsored the video of the song in Tanzania.
Lyta is currently signed by Doro Music Gang (DMG), owned by Yusuf Abdou Ramy, and is popularly known as Doro Bom.
