Born and raised in River state, Nigeria, Black Gs didn’t know his potential in music until his grandmother heard him sing one faithfulmorning and recognized the talent in her grandson. She immediatelybrought him to church and got him involved in the choir of the church. It was there that Black Gs’ talent was nurtured and his potential was brought out for his whole congregation to sing. As his confidence started to rise, he started to realize how musically inclined he was, where rhytms and beats were something he managed to follow with ease.
It was his overall love for music that pushed him to continuously improve himself. He would listen to various artists from the US and from Africa to develop his musical culture. Even after establishing himself to his current status, Black Gs still feels that he could expand and improve himself by learning from the best. Michael Jackson was an inspiration to him which drove him to not only sing but also dance during his performances. It cannot be denied today that Black Gs amazes his audience with his heavenly voice and dancing skills.
