I'm Israel Emeka Okeke, from Anambra State. Was born and breed in Kaduna state in the family of Mr & Miss Hope Okeke, we are a family of 4 and I'm the first of them all, i was born in August 15 199 something in U/rimi, then moved to Barnawa 2002 after the crisis which I lost my dad. I started my career as a solo dancer in my primary school days in Yesheng international  school U/sunday Kaduna in 2005 watching the likes of Michael Jackson, Usher, B2K, Chris Brown Etc. 



I later joined Ecwa high school for just a class and then moved to Gaskiya Skills International School, that's when I discovered I could sing and start writing  songs. 


As time goes, I joined my first dance crew Y.I.P and then to Momentum Soldier which we participated in the Malta Guinness Street Dance (MGSD) and end up in 3rd place runner up in 2008. 



In 2009 I started my own crew Street Steppers which we attempted Peack Talent Show, Battle of The Year (BOTY) Maltina Family Dance All (MFDA) and many competitions, I won so many awards as a solo dancer and as a crew. 


 Then in 2011 I lost my mom which really broke me, just about finishing my secondary school, then I quite dancing and looked for a job. I did lots of job to survive like hawking of sim pack, joined in labour service in site, did everything I could to survive, which I later got a job as a contract staff in Simridu under Nigeria Breweries. 


In 2012 I picked up my music carrier and backed it up with dance, I released my first single Skondo, and then Akwa-Ugo and later Murder, gradually I gained balance in 2014 I realized 2 singles Skondo-Refix and D-Way. In 2015 I left Kaduna to step out of my comfort zone I was thinking of Lagos all the way but didn't have the connect, so I moved to asaba. Where the hustle was though and rough but I kept grinding. 


There was ups and downs and so many betrayal and backstabbing name it but I kept pushing, I later went into construction works to learn more about building, which I started my own company Supreme Luxury Constructions (S.L.C). I later joined a merchandising company Right Price limited to back the hustle up. Then I convertted into Judaism, soon than I expected I gained favor and the past was history.
