• A multicultural, multigenerational, global musician with over 1 billion views on his YouTube channel, Boye uses his life experiences to instill lessons on resilience

  • Overcame homelessness to become a world-inspiring superstar

Alex Boyé was born in London to Nigerian parents. He grew up in Tottenham, a neighborhood often described as "tough". Sadly, he never knew his father. In his teens, his mother claimed she was traveling to Nigeria for a trip – she did not return for over 8 years. He ended up spending a lot of his youth in foster homes with Caucasian parents. He struggled with depression, homelessness, and suicidal ideation during the earlier parts of his life. He has now committed his life to inspire others that life IS worth living.

As a teenager, he was influenced by various African-American artists. In 1995, he formed the European boy band, Awesome. They eventually won a competition on London's largest radio station, Capital Radio. From there, the band signed with Universal records and went on to have several chart-toppers. Boyé eventually left the band, citing that it wasn’t the lifestyle he was looking for. To that point, he began the solo career he continues to build-on today. Alex added acting to his repertoire, when with no experience as an actor, Boyé was recruited as a last-minute stand-in to play Fredrick Douglas at Roger Memorial. He learned his lines and united the cast. The theatre's board president said Boyé "saved the production."

In 2017, Boyé was the "Grand Prize Winner" at the Hard Rock Café and Pepsi cosponsored Battle of the Bands. In September 2018, his single "Bend Not Break" (produced by American Idol’s Randy Jackson) became a chart-topper – the song has 1M+ streams. The song continues to be a source of inspiration for people around the world who are suffering from depression. Alex continues to make music that draws from both his African roots and unique upbringing. His work has been streamed across platforms 1B+ times. The authentic mix of his African tribalization with his messages of resilience truly make him a one-of-a-kind performer.

Speech Topics

You Are a 10!

Our mind is always eavesdropping on our self-talk, and our self-talk is the steering wheel to either failure or massive success, which is actually a choice. This is one of Alex's most requested presentations that talks about what Alex calls "mental amnesia" and why it is important to break the worry habit. Worry is simply a destructive mental habit that we were not born with. In a study made of one hundred and seventy American executives of the average age of 40 years, it was discovered that one half had high blood pressure, heart disease, high anxiety and stomach ulcers. It was recorded in every case that worry was a dominant factor in those executives. This presentation demonstrates in a fun, energetic and entertaining way, how to defeat the plague of worry and replace it with peace of mind, improved health, happiness and well-being.

Change Your Words, Change Your Life

Good mental health is just as important as good physical health. You are what you feed your mind. Science shows that you can tell how the life of a person will turn out just by listening to them speak for 10 minutes and hearing the words they use to describe their life. Through song & motivational words, Alex shares in his unique and enigmatic style, highly entertaining, comedic and heart wrenching personal stories about powerful life lessons he learned during his homeless days, eating food out of trash cans. One of the things he learned with respect to well-being, is that you can't fill your mind with mental trash and expect roses to come out. Alex gives tips and actionable ways to help people change their inner conversations about themselves.

Show Me Your I.D! Show Me Your I.D!

If you don't know who you are, then nobody else will. With personal stories and enthusiastic style, Alex shares things he has implemented in his life that healed him from past trauma, and what he has learned can help individuals “SUPERSIZE” and maintain their identity and self-belief. By using tried-and-tested, actionable mind treatments, we can unlearn negative mental traits that may have been holding us back from success.
