Bio

Born Obinna Arinze Iheme on the 21st of Nov in the early 80’s,I have grown to perfect the game and proven to be a master in the genre of Afro Hip Hop/Dance hall music . With an outstanding music style un-likened to any other, a unique vocal signature and lyrics laced with the rasp use of inventive street language that excites the senses.

First hitting the scene in 2003 with a hit single titled "Carry Go", i drew massive interest from media houses,labels and fans alike with a beautifully tailored comical track that tore dance floors across Nigeria. Carry Go went ahead to win awards for best song of the year, best video of the year and i was also awarded most promising act of the year in the 2004 Gbedu awards.

Later releasing his first album " Da Chosen One" I proved that I was ready to stake his claim in the then thriving entertainment industry in Nigeria. Being a record producer and sound engineer, few years down the
line and with 2 albums to my credit and a desire for an international outreach, I made his third strike the best strike. Teaming up with Roll-A-Dice Entertainment, a UK based entertainment outfit led by Donald "igwe" Iro for my 3rd album project titled "M.O.N.E.Y" which gave me international breakthrough.

The first single taken off the M.O.N.E.Y album was "Egba mi" featuring W4, which caused mayhem nationally. The song received generous airplay on Nigerian radio stations and featured on notable club DJs play-list. The album was released June 2009 under the Roll-A-dice entertainment platform and it featured guest appearances by W4, Intrudah, Olushizzy and lots more as well as productions by K solo, Juve the sampler...to mention a few.

In the wake of 2010, I raised a whirlwind in the music industry with the release of my most controversial song titled "Maga" a more like a sequel response to the Microsoft endorsed project on Internet Security which featured top acts in the game. MAGA was a song directed to highlighting the masked truth that has been left unspoken for ages. But was later misunderstood as a diss song to the artists involved on the project.

I describe my own music as fun, youthful and straight from the heart, while at the same time
signifying deep meaning. Reflecting on his rough background growing up as a kid. "I never choose a song that I can’t relate to in some way, shape, or form. My music will always reflect who I am.”
In 2011 I put together a world class production outfit to harness my music into world class standards, having a platform that could harness my potentials to the max, I put to work and rounded off my album titled “Monkey Bizness”. The album boast of a lot of A-list acts such as Sound Sultan, LKT, UK based rapper Cashino NDT, Zara, TMoney...to mention a few, also with production credits by Positive Urch, Sound Sultan, DXL, Muno, K-Solo.
Currently I am in New York recording my fifth album which will feature collaborations from a lot of US based artistes.
