How does someone go from being an entrepreneur to being a smash hitmaker in less than 18 months? Ceesar (real name Nelson Silva) is Ottawa-born. He graduated from Carleton University while owning his own business in retail sales. He soon spotted that the world of eCommerce was the way forward and transitioned alongside the digital era. It didn’t take too long for him to feel the calling from the music world. In 2019, Ceesar decided to pack up eCommerce and switch to making music. He released his first EP in 2020 which is a hit with his fans. His best release to date ‘Speechless’, has accumulated over 200,000 streams on Spotify alone and counting.

Ceesar didn’t set out to become a social media star, but his online presence marks him as an influencer, whether he likes it or not.
What to expect from Ceesar in the future? This artist has expressed an interest in setting up his own record label. He has been working hard on vocal lessons to perfect his style, although he admits the autotune helps blend up his mishmash style of genre-hopping beats. His latest single dropped on November 5th and has already smashed targets out of the water. The combination of style, a huge fan base, and a unique perspective makes this artist one to watch out for in the future.
