Benny , hails from the Idoma tribe of Benue state. His passion for music started from a very young age as he began performing at age 12, as many of the great artists started, in the choir, amongst performances in school 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’. Although they lasted for just a year, this did not deter Benny from striving towards success, as he has recorded over 175 records till date, done nationwide tours, including the Hip Hop Groove tour with Glo. Not to mention working alongside artists such as Sunny Nneji, Iceprince, General Pype , Jaysleek and Orisha Femi, just to name a few.
With a worthy resume to boast of, Benny, the singer/rapper/dancehall artist, still continues to look up to the greats for inspiration, such as Bob Marley, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men. However, his personal music style can be described as very eclectic, bringing versatility to the market.
As well as music, Benny has also delved into world of modelling and acting, already featuring in Nollywood movies alongside Jim Iyke and Rita Dominic, however, music always remained his primary focus.
Benny , who strives to be the biggest name in Nigeria, lives by these words: ‘There’s only one don, the one that created Jesus Christ. If you believe him, you’ll get there’
