"Wow! What can I say? I feel extremely blessed to have had such a wonderful, talented Pianist and Singer perform at my 50th Birthday Dinner Celebration. Nike, you are simply amazing - pure class! I opted for a 30 minute piano set, as my guests were arriving. Nike's piano performance was mesmerising and it set such an elegant mood and ambience for the evening. This was followed by two 40 minute singing performances, while guests were eating.
Nike's voice is so beautiful, soulful and flawless. It was so nice to observe the appreciation on the faces, of all my guests, who felt the need to stop eating so that they could clap after each song. Nike also performed a special song towards the end of the evening. This was a tribute to my late Sister, who passed away, unexpectedly, in 2015. This performance couldn't have been more fitting. Nike sang each word with such emotion and although I was tearful, I was elated with the honour that was generated through the delivery of this performance. Nike is a true professional. Through all our communication, I found her to be so personable, accommodating and helpful. Nike is truly special. I have received such wonderful comments, from my guests, in relation to Nike's performance. I am already thinking about future occasions where I can book Nike again. Nike, it has been an absolute pleasure working with you to create the outstanding occasion that my 50th birthday celebration turned out to be. Thank you so much! (10 / 10)"
- Janet (June 2017)
"Nike performed at our wedding ceremony at Christmas. Her voice was so beautiful and spot on for the occasion. She sang 1000 years while bridesmaids walked down the aisle and Hallelujah for me - and had everyone in tears (in a good way!). The music in the reception was perfect and beautiful!
Nike was also so easy to work and is genuinely a lovely performer, who couldn't do enough to help make the day really special - she was a joy to work with from start to finish. She was always available for a quick chat, and nothing was too hard. She even learnt a couple of new songs for us for the day!
Thank you... I would thoroughly recommend Nike - she has an amazing voice and is a lovely person to have at your wedding..."
- Dani Filer (Wedding)
"Niké is a true professional - arrived early to set up and even learned a new song for us. Not only did we absolutely adore her performance but our guests were entranced by her beautiful voice and stunning piano playing. Niké helped to make our day truly unforgettable and we would thoroughly recommend her."
- Sue and Jen (Wedding)
"Incredible performer, amazing vocal range, and huge versatility from old-time jazz classics to modern rnb."
- Enyioma (Corporate event)
"We feel so lucky to have had Niké perform at our wedding as she was just simply fantastic! Not only is she very professional but just a lovely person and she certainly made the stressful process of organising a singer at your wedding an easy and pleasurable experience for us. The guests loved her and we received many compliments throughout the night as well as days following the wedding so she was obviously memorable to our guests which was great. We are now looking for another excuse to organise another party so we can book her again! We really can't thank you enough Niké and hope to see you again in the near future! All the best."
- Sarah (Wedding)
"We searched for a long time for a Wedding singer for our reception and we knew from the way Miss Niké Jemiyo sang on the website, that she would be the one for us. She did not disappoint in the slightest. Every song she sang was to perfection and I am so happy that we arranged for her final song to be our first dance song because she sang it to perfection. It was a wonderful performance and I wish we could have hired her for longer!"
- Pratheesh Puvanagopan (Wedding Reception)
"Hi Niké, just want to say a huge thank you for the amazing performance you did at our party. You were amazing and really enjoyed your performances. You really captivated our guests. Thanks so much for travelling up and also for making our evening. We can't thank you enough."
- Maulik & Praksha (Aug 2016)
"Niké played at our wedding on Friday 24th June at Botleys Mansion, Surrey. She was amazing, her voice is truly fantastic and her piano skills, faultless. To come down the stairs and walk down the aisle to the lovely dulcet tones of Nike (which our guests had been enjoying in a pre-ceremony reception already) was amazing, and when she launched into our ceremony songs, so touching, so beautifully orchestrated, it was emotional! Niké then played to our guests after the ceremony during the drinks reception, she was beautifully presented and poised at all times, delivering song after song of beautiful melodious music. She is a true professional, needed little to no direction and came early and stayed on to ensure she delivered a flawless performance and service. All of our guests were very impressed by her, and have asked of her since. Truly one of the best decisions we made for the day was hiring Niké."
- Selina and Richard (June 2016)
"Thank you so much for being part of our special day. You made the ceremony and we thought you were amazing. Literally filled the church with your voice. Incredible. The vicar loved you too! Thanks again."
- Trudy and Dan (May 2016)
"Nike performed at our engagement as a surprise and she was simply brilliant! She has an amazing voice and was so thoughtful with her song choices and performance. I cannot thank Nike enough for her incredibly intimate performance that made our day so special, it wouldn't have been the same without her!"
- Rich Smith (Jan 2016)
"My wife and I had the pleasure of having Niké singing for us at our recent wedding in Tuscany. Niké sang a 2x 45 min set for our guests on the Friday night, and another 2x 45 min set on the Saturday afternoon during the cocktail in the garden. We had chosen the songs she would sing after looking through her vast repertoire, and Niké had also agreed to learn 2 songs from scratch especially for the occasion. I had the chance to hear Niké warm up on the Friday night before her set, and wow it was even better than what we had previously heard on her website or YouTube channel! The guys setting up the audio, and the villa's owner were also blown away by the sound of Niké's voice and piano skills. Friday night's set was amazing, and all of our guests shared the same opinion. Luckily for them they discovered that she was going to be performing again the next day! Saturday's set was even better, and was just perfect to accompany the cocktail under the Tuscan sunshine after our ceremony. Over the weekend I lost track of the number of times our guests would come up to me and tell me what a great a voice she had! My wife and I were so happy with the choice we made asking Niké to come and perform for us. Thank you Niké for contributing to our amazing wedding weekend in Tuscany...!"
- Luke T (May 2016)
"Niké performed at our wedding and created a relaxed sophisticated atmosphere. Niké has an amazing voice and is a talented pianist - she played a wide range of music including some current songs and special requests for us, with her own arrangements. All our guests commented positively on our choice of musician and Nike was the perfect addition to our special [url hidden] would highly recommend her. "
- Debra and Tim (Sept 2015)
"I have used Niké on several occasions now - one being my wedding and, because we found her so amazing, my daughters wedding too! I found her professional as well as very talented and flexible enough to compose just the right set on both occasions. Thank you Niké. I would definitely recommend her for your special occasion."
