Philip Dumanayo Mvula, mononymously known as Nayo derived from his middle name,born on September 9,1997, is a singer songwriter and performing artist from Lusaka, Zambia.

At an early age, dancing was his passion but music took up a greater part and soon developed more interest in musical genres such as Reggae, Afro Pop and soul music which was heavily influenced by his father's play list.

Nayo's musical journey began in 2013 showcasing his talent at local events while still developing his vocal ability and stage presence and also regularly called in to a radio show, where he met and became part of a team that created an artist collective group known as Nothing But Voices (NBV) making him one of the founders.

Into the year of 2017 Nayo announced his arrival on the music scene professionally and has delivered world class performances on a variety of stages including sharing the stage with both international and local artists as a solo act and a back up vocalist,

The young artist has proven to be a new fresh air of soul music in Zambia and is acoustically rooted in Afrocentric fusion with an aim to grow recognition both locally and internationally.
