Biography


Taio Cruz was born on April 23, 1983 with the name Adetayo Ayowale Onile-Ere. He went to a school in rural Sussex and developed a love for the Eighties pop/dance of Madonna and Michael Jackson. In music classes, he chose to spend his time, playing the piano. Recording his first demos as a teenager, Cruz began taking his songs and productions more seriously during his college years - resulting in him prestigiously signing a US publishing deal at just 18 years old.

He formed a record label called Rokstarr Music in London and released a single called "I Just Wanna Know" in 2006 when he was just 23 years old. In the same year, his talent was recognized by people in several major labels and he signed joint-venture partnership deal with Universal Music Group Companies, US-based Republic Records and the UK branch of Island Records.
