Hailing from the Idoma tribe of Benue state. Benny’s passion for music started from a very young age as he began performing at age 12, starting in the choir, in school performances, plays and dramas.
Benny continued in Lagos to further his music career. In 1999, Benny joined a group introduced to him by the legendary Faze of the Plantashun Boiz, The Fresh and The Freshies, formed of himself, Dr Fresh and Komoblastic, within which they had the hit track ‘Caro’, sadly only lasting for a year. But he persevered and has now recorded over 175 songa to date, done nationwide tours and worked alongside Sunny Nneji, Iceprince, General Pype , Jaysleek and Orisha Femi, to name a few.
Finding inspiration from Bob Marley, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, the singer/rapper/dancehall artist still maintains his own personal music style, and can be described as very eclectic, bringing versatility to the market.
Multi-talented Benny has also delved into world of modeling and acting, already featuring in Nollywood movies alongside Jim Iyke and Rita Dominic, however, although music still remains his primary focus.
Striving to be a big artist in Nigeria he lives by the words: ‘There’s only one don, the one that created Jesus Christ. If you believe him, you’ll get there’
