Hi, my name is Ladi, and I am 17 years old now, but I will be turning 18 this upcoming June. I currently live in Broward County, Florida. This year I am graduating from high school and will be heading off to college. I am currently working at a local gym, and I have my music career.

As of right now I have 3 songs out for people to listen to on my YouTube and Instagram. I enjoy watching sports and hanging out with my friends on the weekends. I really am hoping that God continues to bless me with my future.
