Alonzo

Bio

Alonzo (born Alonzo Teah Abasi) is a Sierra Leonean/Liberian songwriter, recording artist and performer.

In 2003, the US embassy in Liberia organised a competition for HIV/AIDS asking members of the public to create a song that promotes awareness for HIV/AIDS. Alonzo took part in the competition and won. This kick-started the musical career of Alonzo, as the US embassy continued to sponsor him.

Alonzo became infatuated with music and all it entailed. He recorded his first mix tape ‘INNOCENT’ in Nigeria and released it in 2006. The mix tape received public recognition and was a huge success with songs such as 'Letter to the President', 'Liberian Angel', 'Can’t Believe' and 'Innocent'.

Following the success of his mix-tape, Alonzo signed to Kallboxx Records in Sierra Leone, in 2008. Later in the year, Alonzo released his debut studio album titled ‘Africa Unite'. He rose to prominence with the release of a song called 'Angel', which speaks about his long distance relationship with his love. This song became a favourite song in Sierra Leone and beyond.

The album titled track, 'Africa' became an international hit in countries such as the US and the UK. The song was played on BBC earning Alonzo a lucrative deal with leading record label Sony and BMG. In 2008, the song was featured on the Best of Africa Mix Tape alongside artists such as Yousour Ndour and the late Mariam Makeba from South Africa.

In 2009 he was invited by MTV Music Africa to represent Sierra Leone as the country’s favourite artist. At the pre MAMA (MTV African Music Awards) in Kenya, Alonzo performed with African music greats such as Akon and Wyclef Jean. Since then, Alonzo has not stopped working and has continued to strive to always remain one step ahead of the musical game. This includes performing at sold out concerts internationally.

His work and contribution to the Sierra Leone and Liberian Music Industry has earned him several achievements, including the Best Male Artist award at Sierra Leone National Awards (2012), Artist of the year AWOL (All works of life) (2014), SL DJ Union Award for Best Lovers Rock Artist and SLM TV USA recipient for best reggae artist, Special achievement award for contribution to Liberian music at Liberian Music (Entertainment Awards Australia) (2013). He also received the Artist of the Year Europe award at the 2016 Liberia Music awards in Minnesota.

In 2012, Alonzo released his second studio album called ‘Dream Alive’ featuring the smash hit 'Salone Party'. In 2016, he released another album titled 'Overdose'.

In 2020, Alonzo toured Canada and released the Krootown Road (KTR) Borbor Project, a brand new mixtape that is available to stream on multiple platforms.
