Today is the birthday of Nigerian singer, Jeremiah Gyang!
A native of Jos, Plateau State in Northern Nigeria, Jeremiah Gyang became conversant with the Piano and Guitar before reaching the age of ten.
With a revered and well known musician as a father, late Rev. Luke Dung Gyang, it's little wonder the talented act began to sing in his church.
He is often credited as being responsible for bringing contemporary Hausa music to the mainstream with hits like 'Na ba ka’ ( I give you) which skyrocketed him to national consciousness, then ‘Kauna Allah’ (God’s Love) and ‘In love with you’.
Jeremiah’s music has been described as a fine blend of soulful African rhythms, blues, rock and gospel.
Our second birthday boy is longtime rapper, Ikechukwu. Ikechukwu Onunaku was born and raised in America. He was formerly a marine in America and also has a black belt in Taekwondo.
Ikechukwu has three albums under his belt. He was formerly signed to Storm Records, and was affiliated with Mo’ Hits briefly.
Today is also the birthday of hit music producer D’Tunes.
D’Tunes whose real names are Adesanya Doyinsola at 20, had worked with acts such as Faze, Ruggedman, Dipp, Silver Saddih, Lord of Ajasa, Cap B, Iceberg Slim, Rico White, Shank, Hakym d Dream, Rasheed and many others.
His big break came when he produced Iyanya’s monster hit ‘Kukere’ in 2011. He went on to produce Iyanya’s successful album .
