Joy EseOghene Odiete, AKA J'odie, is a gifted vocalist, songwriter, musician and jewelry designer. She was born into a Christian family to Bishop and Rev. Mrs. John Odiete of Christ Peculiar Church Int'l.
As a teenager, fresh out of college, she decided to "explore", as she felt stuck in a triangular routine of the church choir, school and home.
This journey brought her to the West African Idols stage in 2007, where she came sixth. The competition opened a new vista in her life. J'odie, at the time, began to see the possibility of making a career out of music.
Her song, Kuchi Kuchi (Oh Baby) - released in 2010, which expresses love from mother to child, hit the airwaves and created a mark in the Nigerian music scene. Through that hit track, she clinched nominations and awards and went ahead to release a full album, titled African Woman, in 2012.
The journey of fame has taken J'odie through many phases, but the love of Jesus Christ has brought her back home.
J'odie is a moist clay in God's hands, daily being shaped to spread the Good News through her God-given musical talents and many more being discovered.
