Apart from releasing 3 singles available on global digital music distribution platforms like iTunes, Spotify, etc.,

Dolly has also put out topnotch music videos and most impressively, created a huge catalogue of unreleased songs which he has been performing with his own live music band Wuli’bali, a 16 piece orchestra.

In October 2018, Dolly Pearl took his live music stage prowess to the highly competitive Nigerian music market where he performed as closing act at the 2018 edition of the reputable music event Felabration, a festival meant to celebrate the life of Afrobeat creator and legend Fela Kuti. The more than 7000 Afrobeat lovers at Felabration 2018, where instantly drawn to the highly melodious, cool paced nature and mind pricking lyrical contents of Dolly’s masterpiece Waka-Waka, which he performed at the event.

The song did not only wow the teeming audience but it also attracted the executive attention of late Fela Kuti’s manager Rikki Stein, who immediate requested to meet with the Waka-Waka crooner. Stepping off the Felabration stage, Dolly Pearl was escorted straight to Rikki’s VIP backstage corner, where he received a warm handshake and business card from Rikki Stein himself.


Dolly Pearl’s spot at Felabration, which ran from October 15th to 21st, 2018, in Lagos, came right after Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, was ushered in by Fela’s first son Femi Kuti. And it is worth noting that His Excellency the vice president of Nigeria, left the Felabration venue very satisfied having watched only one performance, which of course was the festival’s final performance delivered by none other than Dolly Pearl.
