Born in 1989, the Warri-born rapper grew to prominence in 2010 with his viral cover version of ‘Oleku’ by Ice Prince and Brymo.

He followed up in September 2011 with ‘Oh My Gosh’, which earned him both ‘Lyricist on the Roll’ and ‘Best Rap Single’ nominations at the 2012 Headies Awards.


The following year, the gifted rapper won an award for the ‘National Act of the Year’ in the Abuja Music and Meritorious Award 2013.

He has continued to pull the strings in the country’s music landscape and dropped ‘Introduction To Trapfro‘, his hit album, last year.
