Nivaldo Batista Lima (born 3 September 1989), better known by his stage name Gusttavo Lima, is a Brazilian singer of sertaneja. Known in his country with many hits, like "Inventor dos Amores", "Cor de Ouro" and gained international fame and success through the song "Balada". He is often compared to the sertanejo singers Luan Santana and Michel Teló.
Son of Alcino and Sebastiana Lima, although born in Minas Gerais, grew up in Goiânia, Goiás. In 1998 while he was just 9, he joined as soloist in a choir and gained attention through his interpretation of "É o Amor", composed by Zezé di Camargo & Luciano. Gusttavo cited as some of his main inspirations Gino & Geno, Chitãozinho & Xororó, Bruno & Marrone and Zeze di Camargo.
In 2010, he signed with Som Livre label and released Inventor dos Amores, as a CD and DVD, with sales of 15,000 copies. The title track was a collaboration with Jorge & Mateus, reaching #24 in the Brazilian Billboard Brasil charts. Based on this initial success, he released the single "Cor de Ouro" that reached #21 in Brazil.
In 2011, Gusttavo released CD and DVD titled Gusttavo Lima e Você which was recorded live in Patos de Minas, on June 3, 2011 during Fenamilho musical event with estimated audience of 6,000,000 people. The highly popular album reached #7 and was certified platinum. The album produced his definitive hit "Balada" (full title "Balada Boa (Tchê Tcherere Tchê Tchê) based on the famous refrain), which reached #3 in Brazil. The Brazilian football player Neymar played a similar role to that he played in Michel Teló's smash success "Ai se eu te pego!" and appeared in many shows with Gusttavo Lima.
In January 2012, he embarked on a first international tour with shows in US Latin markets in Florida, and later on in Atlanta (Georgia), Newark (New Jersey) and Revere (Massachusetts). Gusttavo released his hit single "Balada" in European markets following the steps of fellow Brazilian singer Michel Teló. He also released another live album in 2012 titled Ao vivo em São Paulo, on October 6, 2012 in Brazil.
