Toyin Ores (born Oluwatoyin Eyimofe Oresanya on April 18, 1995 in Ogun State, Nigeria) is a genre-bending Nigerian Recording Artiste, Producer, and Sound Engineer who is based in Lagos, Nigeria. He started his musical journey in 2009 as a secondary school student who would play around with Audacity and Fruity Loops to make beats for fun – and to lessen the production costs for his friends’ studio sessions. It wasn’t until 2017, while he was pursuing his Bachelor’s degree in Geoscience, that he started taking it seriously.
Since then Toyin Ores has released a total of 3 personal projects, 2 Joint EPs and 13 singles, whilst producing for world-class acts like ShowDemCamp, Tems, Wizkid, Shalom Dubas, and Lamii; and opened up for major industry acts like Mr. Eazi, Patoraking, Joey Badass, and Kyle.
Coming into 2022 Toyin Ores was looking to challenge himself in a way that would benefit his music and his positioning as an artist. So he set a goal to release a single every 2 weeks, while continuing to record and produce amazing projects for other artists (some of which are set to be released in the final months of the year). One of the best singles that came from that decision is his release – ‘KOKOSĘ’.
