Born Khadijah "Hadiza" Blell to a SierraLeonean dad and a Nigerian mom, Di'ja started her musical career as far back as 2008, but was relatively unknown until February 14, 2014, when super producer Don Jazzyannounced that he had signed her to his label, the same day her first single under the label: “Yaro” dropped.
The song "Yaro", which announced her to the Nigerian market, is an up-tempo celebration of love and commitment against all odds. It infuses Hausa and Krio dialects in honour of her Nigerian and Sierra Leonean roots
The beautiful visual artiste, songwriter and model also featured on the hit single "Dorobucci"along side label boss Don Jazzy and label mates Dr.Sid, Tiwa Savage, D'Prince, Reekado Banks and Korede Bello. She also featured on "Adaobi",“LookuLooku” and "Arise", this time with onlyDon Jazzy and Reekado Banks alone.
She solidified her relevance in the industry with a well composed follow up single to "Yaro" titled "Awww"and has since gone on to feature and be featured by other artistes.
