Tell us a bit about yourself.
My names are popularly known as Keanzo. I am known as a multi lingual talented rapper (Yoruba and English) who is set take over the music scene in Nigeria. Keanzo is a household name in Ibadan and I won the Globacom best rapper ibadan in 2011. I am a student of the Lead City University, Ibadan. Keanzo is also next big thing to happen in Nigeria and this is because I believe so much in myself and I will say it without being proud that I am the best in my field. I am signed under Cockie Entertainment and my brand is growing day by day.
When and how did you discover your talent?
I discovered my talent for rapping about four years ago before I won the Globacom best rapper competition in Ibadan. Before then, I had been playing a lot of musical instruments since I was a kid but after I won that competition, people started expecting a lot from me so I decided not to disappoint them and go into music fully.
