Nigerian singer Kingsley Okonkwo, popularly known as Kcee, credits his father with shaping his music career.

Kcee said he and his brother come co-founder of Five Star Music, Emeka Okonkwo, better known as E-Money, were disc jockeys like their father before switching careers.

He said: “My father was a DJ, a record seller. I grew up in a home where my father sold records. So all the old-school artists, I know them [their music]. I was selling their records when I was about 5 or 6 years old.

“When I was in secondary school, I was already handling a full record store and playing at parties. I and E-Money were DJs. So, I listened to a lot of artists.”

Kcee added that the secret to his longevity in the music industry is his “ear for a hit song.”
