The new artists’ era in Nigeria has begun for sometime now – check any social networking site or youtube, a new artist is born to us avid music addicts. Some days ago, my eardrums luckily hit a jackpot called “Alright“, which i initially mistook as a new single from an American artist …but ALAS! Dude’s nigerian and his name is….
…Philemon Chukwuka Okezie better known as Kevin Tita.
Kevin Tita hails from Abia State, had his Primary Education in Kaduna(Christ Ambassadors College) and his secondary education in Jos(Emmanuel International College). Like a high majority of singers, he started as a singer in the choir (by the way..keep an eye on the choir,that small kid or aunty you listen to in church might just bring us a Grammy), then in the year 2003 he switched to the rap genre,under the influence of Jay Z,The Game,Chamillionaire and MIMS.
Join’d a crew named CRozz Blinkz, then left in December 2009 due to controversies surrounding his artistic differences.While in the crew, they recorded “Halle Berry” a song that topped the KD radio charts for 3 weeks and spent 12 weeks on the Top 10. The song was written and composed by Kevin himself.
After he left the crew he recorded “In Your Arms“, and “SCREAM” a freestyle laced on Micheal Jackson’s “They don’t really care about us” beat. He got discovered by his current manager, Linda Jacks and got signed to BabyLynn Entertainment on May 21, 2010.
Presently he’s working on his 1st album titled “Lookin’ Beyond The Future” which is due for release on Independence Day.
