Born and raised in Nigeria, Ruchi Daniel Wigwe moved to Toronto, Canada to continue his career in music. Ruchi has been making his own music since he was 15 years old, but his love for music first started when he got his first piano from his mother at the age of 5. It then naturally developed into an interest in walking his own musical path as an emerging singer-songwriter.
In striving to grow as an artist, Ruchi writes songs that are not limited to one specific genre; creating within the realm of Pop/R&B music and infusing his craft with an array of sounds and emotion that come from the heart. This is demonstrated by the presence of the heavy Afro-beats influence in “Disaster” and his latest single “New Day”, an emotive song that boasts an uplifting gospel arrangement. Ruchi takes each piece of everything within and surrounding him to greatly influence his song-writing process while looking up to the diverse sounds of many artists he listens to— from Queen, Michael Jackson, Nina Simone, Elton John, Otis Redding, Ray Charles to the recent likes of Bruno Mars and Kanye West. All these different inspirations that come to him are weaved seamlessly into a distinctive sound that the listeners can immediately see in the delivery of Ruchi’s music. And with this, Ruchi is now more than ready to leave his footprints in the music scene worldwide.
