Solid Star (Joshua Iniyezo) is a Nigerian Afro-beat singer, songwriter, and performer who was born on September 24, 1988.


His ancestors were from the Delta State village of Aviara. He went to Delta State for his elementary and secondary studies.

He began his musical career as a drummer in his home town of Aviara for his church choir, but has since turned his concentration to singing, which has won him acclaim.

A few years later, he was spotted in a music talent event in Lagos’ Ajegunle neighborhood. He was introduced to Paul Cole, the head of a record label.


Solid Star rose to prominence following the release of his smash track “One in a Million” in 2010, which included 2face on the remix. The song was one of the most popular in 2010.

Outside of singing in English, Solidstar can also sing in his native dialect, Isoko, which has made him well-known in his home state of Delta State. Currently, he is contracted to Achievas Records.

He has established himself as one of Nigeria’s most popular singers and the first debutant in West Africa to release an Enhanced Audio CD.

In 2010, he launched his debut album “One in a Million,” which was a great smash and featured 14 tracks by some of Nigeria’s best artists and producers, including 2face, Breeze, Illbliss, Clever Jay, and others. Check out SolidStar’s Songs, Videos and Albums below!
