Bursting in on the hiphop scene in Nigeria when he recorded ‘Tomorrow Never Comes‘ with producer Machyld, GQ is an emcee who fell in love with words at a very tender age…thanks to a father and mother who instilled a deep appreciation for books and reading; and a brother who stacked comic books. Simultaneously he was also getting a solid background in music with his father constantly feeding him classics, country music
With time GQ evolved from a poet to a lyricist of above-average ability and a commanding presence on the mic. After years well spent developing and rounding off his craft, GQ is ready to share his words and music, determined after finding his feet again early 2010 to round off the year well.
And rounded off well he did, keeping the airwaves loaded with his monthly releases HipHop Monthly from May – October 2010, three tracks per month on which he chronicled issues that were of relevance then. By the end of the six-month project he had amassed an impressive number of fellowship for an independent artist, and then released “GQ and Asa: Reflections On A Soul: The Unofficial Remixes” free mixtape on which he sampled the beats and vocals of the incredible songstress. This even got him more ground, being the first artist in Nigeria to attempt such a thing, and then pulled it off well.
2010 was indeed a busy and productive year for the emcee as he rounded off the year with his debut, “Therapy Music“, a free internet/limited hard copy album. With nothing but positive reviews and feedback so far, GQ jumped into 2011 with both legs ready to take over the music industry.
