I only wanted to test the Syos mouthpiece, but I could not drop it again afterwards, I could hit the pitch perfectly, going altissimo got easier... I concluded in my mind that this mouthpiece is made for me. It is BOLD and fit for a king.

Biography

Demilade Adepegba, fondly called the BOLD One, is a phenomenon. The 13 years old saxophonist is a Nigerian child prodigy who has been basked in the aura and beauty of the saxophone.

His parents discovered his love for music from his early years, as the only toys he played with were the ones that were musicals. He got a saxophone as a gift on his 6th birthday and since then he has sustained the tempo, taking it several notches higher with every passing day.

Funny enough, despite just stepping into his teenage year, Demilade listens and study the musical veterans that are way out of his age, legends like Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and many others, hence he developed great love for Jazz, and infused that into the Afro beat style. His consistency and his dexterity and skills are second to none while he takes his musical theory classes/examination serious and presently attends college.

The BOLD One has graced so many stages and performed at various events where many have been wowed by the stunning display of mastery and stage craft. Although his music journey is getting started, he has had the privilege to play alongside notable Nigeria Saxophonists such as BeeJay Sax, Mike Aremu and even International acts like Berklee College of music graduates Godwin Louis and Ariana Stanberry amongst others.

He is a multi-award winning young saxophonist and has attracted attention within and outside Africa with his regular video posts of his craft which are breath-taking and simply superlative. He has enjoyed media coverage on some of the leading respected media platforms including BBC, Channels TV, TVC, Online blogs and many others.
