Blaqbonez Bio

Emeka Akumefule (born 29 January 1996), known professionally as Blaqbonez, is a Nigerian rapper. Many of Blaqbonez songs become very popular and trendy online with a great number of streaming and downloads on Boomplay.

Emeka was born on 29 January 1996, to an Igbo family, and grew up exposed to the Yoruba and Urhobo culture in Nigeria.Blaqbonez hails from Imo state, a state in south-eastern Nigeria dominated by the Igbo tribe.

He grew up with his mother, a pastor, in a Yoruba and Urhobo mixed environment. He had his tertiary education at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), where he read an Engineering course.

Career
He was 13 years old when he discovered he could rap, and his journey into music was a result of happenstance. He self-discovered his talent while listening to the radio with his cousin, when the song of a 12-year-old rapper was played. His cousin liked the song and challenged Blaqbonez to come up with his own lyrics, since he liked criticizing rappers. A few minutes later, he had enough bars for a verse, and that was where it all began. His parents were not in support of his newfound hobby, and he secretly pursued his passion. While in school, he dropped his first project, Hip-Hop in Blaq, and participated in competitions.

Blaqbonez took up the challenge and that was when his rapping all began. In 2011, Blaqbonez started participating in underground rap battles. He eventually won Terry Tha Rapman’s Zombie Competition in 2012, beating 3000 rappers in the challenge and that brought him to the close to his fame. In the same year, he featured on Terry’s 2012 mixtape titled “World Domination” alongside top Nigerian musicians including Olamide, Vector, Mode 9, and Spellz.

Blaqbonez started exploring his rap skills very early, and at 16, came 1st out of over 3000 rappers in Nigeria, who participated in Terry tha Rapman’s Zombie competition. As a result, he was featured on Terry’s album World Domination alongside Olamide, Vector (rapper), Mode 9, Spellz which was released in 2012.

Five years later, Blaqbonez featured Terry on one of his projects. He emerged 1st runner-up in Vector (rapper)’s king kong competition, won the Rhythm fm Freestyle Fury and became RhythmFm’s artiste of the month, became the Hennessy Vs class captain, part of the Soundcity blast cypher, also released his much talked about mixtape CTAT “Cassette Tapes and Tvs” grossing over 60,000 engagements in streams and downloads, which is his third mixtape, following hip-hop in blaq and the “unfinished EP”.

He is signed to 100 Crowns, which is an imprint of Chocolate City. Blaqbonez is a famous Nigerian rapper known for blending Yoruba and English in his rap.

In 2019, he was profiled by The New York Times as one of the new guards of Nigerian music. He is widely known for his controversial self-proclaimed status as the “Best Rapper in Africa” (abbreviated as “BRIA”), which became the most talked about topic in the Nigerian hip hop space between July and September 2019.

After carving out one of rap’s most loyal fan bases, Blaqbonez unleashed his debut album “Sex Over Love” to a public that was more than ready to receive it. His unorthodox approach and humorous personality, resonated with the younger generation, and earned him co-signs from the likes of Wizkid and Burna Boy.
