The Nigeria-born singer–whose real name is Ibukun Akingbola– immigrated to Canada when he was three and at 10 began writing his own songs and performing in front of small crowds.
In 2007, I.B.Kredible,18, moved to Brampton and joined the Marguerite D’youville High School. Soon after, he teamed up with Rainer “Hang Loose” Croft, Sean “Kyro” Himan and Josh “Hypno” Thompson and he later joined Stack Deck Music. The group been generating a lot of buzz and despite the intense competition for fame, record deals and the elusive thing called success, I.B. Kredible, remains hopeful someday, it will all be his for taking.
“Yes, there’s a lot of competition out there, but if you know this is what you want to do and work towards it, you’ll be successful,” said I.B. Kredible, who decided to stick with the name because his West African name was quite a mouthful. “My fans (from all over the world) email, write or call me to tell how much they enjoy my music. This keep me going. If there was no one listening, that would have been a different story.”
The young and upcoming singer explains the experience of listening to, My Life Is A Movie, a dance tune, will feel much like watching a film from the perspective of the central character.
“When people watch a movie, they often puts themselves in the shoes of the main character,” he said. “When people hear this song, I want them to be able to view the lyrics as though I was telling the story of their lives. This song has many themes such as love, intimacy and wealth. It has a cool and upbeat tempo, great lyrics and catchy verses you’ll feel like just moving to.”
The Brampton artist said when writing music, his aim is to connect with his audience. His family’s struggles to find a toehold in Canada after coming here from Nigeria, his life as a teenager and the inspiration he gets from various people in his life ultimately become fodder for his music and creativity.

Ibukun Akingbola was born in Nigeria and moved to Toronto’s Rexdale neighbourhood in 1995 where he grew up immersed in hip-hop culture. He started writing songs at 10 years old and today, the 19-year-old calls Brampton home and performs under the moniker I.B.Kredible.
His songs play like recipes for pop music success with high production values and lyrics common amongst rappers such as the chart-topping Drake. With slick production, well-managed samples, and tight, consistent lyrics, Kredible’s songs should have no problem fitting into playlists at clubs, gyms, and on music television.
His first single, “My Life is a Movie” was recorded with his group StacDeck Music. Kredible says: “’My Life Is A Movie’ represents a direct description of what the song is about and what it means. When people hear about the song, I want them to be able to view the lyrics as though I was telling the story of their lives.”
It’s this balance of pop accessibility and honesty that makes Kredible stand out from other independent hip-hop acts. “My Life is a Movie” or “Gettin’ High” play like they already belong on top-40 radio. And while many might be quick to brush off the pop side of hip-hop, there’s no denying that the masses love it; so why not root for one of our own to succeed?
