Boyé’s mother and father are Nigerian. While pregnant, Boyé’s mother went to London while his father remained in Nigeria. He was born in England and returned to Nigeria to live with his father for the first few years of his life. His mother remarried and worked for the London Underground, cleaning tracks at night. Boyé was raised in the Tottenham Court neighborhood. He spent much of his youth in foster homes with Caucasian parents. As a teenager, he listened to the music of Motown, including artists Stevie Wonder, Kool and the Gang, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wilson and Otis Redding. When he was 16, Boyé was working in a McDonald’s in London when he was introduced to the LDS Church by a manager. He was baptised soon afterward, without his mother’s knowledge.
Boyé met his wife, Julie, in an LDS singles ward and they were married in the Salt Lake Temple. They have three children, Adanna, Zander and India. In 2009, Boye began raising money to buy a house for a local refugee family with sales of his single, “Crazy for You.”
On 22 February 2012, Boyé became a United States citizen in a ceremony at the Rose Wagner Theater in Salt Lake City. Boyé was surprised when he was invited by the judge conducting the ceremony to sing The Star-Spangled Banner.
