Women Immigrants Stories Part 1- Jemiriye Adeniji


#MyHustle today features a Nigerian in Diaspora making proud her beautiful country. A lucky, soulful female music artiste whose signature style is her Ankara headgear, was the chosen Nigerian female music artiste to perform this year at the Philadelphia Phillies vs Miami Marlin's game at the Citizens Bank Park Stadium, Philadelphia in fulfillment of the white people's promise of diversity.

Jemiriye Adeniji simply known by her stage name as Jemiriye started her musical career as a child from her church choir where she was the children choir leader at age 7 and ever since then, she has never been disappointed over her first choice to become an international superstar just like her predecessors.

As a child born in Lagos, Nigeria, she loved to listen to her dad's 1960s collections of soul, R n B, Afro pop, Jazz and Highlife music. Music has always been a part of her life regardless of what form it comes.Looking back, she remembers very fondly how she was taken to her grandma in the village to live with her in Ibadan, South-west. This opened her eyes to the beauty and rhythm of African music, as she was able to sing different traditional Yoruba folk songs. She returned to Lagos after 3years, and having experienced the feel of both worlds, she was able to compare the music

Jemiriye grew up to the sounds of artists including; Bob Marley, Sunny Ade, Aretha Franklin, Fela Kuti, Ebenezer Obey, En Vogue, Stevie Wonder, India Arie and late Whitney Houston.

One of her memorable moments was when she won her first group gold medal and award as a teenager at the World teenage conference at the Redemption camp in Nigeria, where over 500 choirs from all over the world participated in the competition. And her group came first in the competition where she led the songs. Apart from music, Jemiriye has a degree in Mass Communication from the Nigerian Institute of Journalism and a professional diploma in Advertising and Promotions from the University of Lagos.

"I have so many things I want to say, and the best way to express myself is through my music because I'm a very deep person that sleeps and wakes up with her notebook and pen to write my songs whenever I'm inspired," Jemiriye says.


PAN African Women Conference, South Africa

Jemiriye has performed at many major places and events, including performing at the 2006 Pan-African Women conference in South Africa where the likes of Winnie Mandela, the then minister of Nigerian women affairs Hajia Ciroma, and other notable women across Africa were in attendance. Jemiriye composed and performed the theme song at the one week women empowerment event. The sensational Nigerian singer has also performed her Soulful and Afro-pop songs across Europe and the United States.


On July 2013, Jemiriye performed to a great applause before a crowd of over 5000 on the street of Vienna, including the Governor of Osun State, Nigeria, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and Governor of Vienna Micheal Haupl, Nigerian Ambassador to Austria and Slovakia, Ambassador Maria Laose, at Wien Museum, Savoyen Hotel, Slovakia.


In 2012, Jemiriye participated in the popular Nigerian reality musical TV show, Nigerian Idol, the Nigerian version of American Idol, where she made it as a top finalist. She was one of the favorite on the show.


April 21st was a day of glory for this pretty Nigerian as she was invited to sing at the stadium during the Philadelphia Phillies vs Miami Marlin's game.

Jemiriye beautifully performed the anthem, "Take me out to the Ballgame" to the crowd of fans live on TV at the Philadelphia Phillies vs Miami Marlin's game at the Citizens Bank Park Stadium, Philadelphia.

It happened to be the Phillies biggest game of the year as it co-incided with Jackie Robinson's day celebration (Jackie Robinson's 42nd Anniversary).

Jemiriye is believed to be the first Nigerian and arguably the first African to perform at the historic event, was given a VIP treatment as she was chauffeured to the venue in a Limo, which she shared on her Facebook page, Jemiriye Adeniji.
