The singer who grew up in a broken home was born into a family of four. He was born & raised in Ebute Meta, Lagos, where he was raised and had his Primary and part of his Secondary education before he moved to Agege, where he completed his Secondary Education.
Growing up in a broke and broken home wasn’t easy for Junior boy as this had an impact on his career. His parents separated while he was still young and he had insufficient funds to chase his dreams. Before venturing into music, Junior Boy took on footballing as a career but had to drop it as it wasn’t doing and due to his love for music. In order to get noticed and to advertise his talent, Junior Boy performed in most shows in Agege for free. He dropped the record “Money” as a struggling artist and the song did really well as he increased his fanbase and relevancy. Still in the spirit and the hype of the record “Money”, Junior Boy went on to release “Irapada”, a song whose performance exceeded his expectation. The song caught the attention of veteran Nigerian singer, 9ice who offered to be on the remix and the remix promoted the song and Junior Boy’s career even further.
Junior eventually landed a management deal with Swerve Innercity and they helped him shoot the music video for the ‘Irapada’ remix featuring 9ice and the video was directed by Unlimited LA.
He secured a record deal worth millions of Naira in 2017 with Obimzy Records and since then it has been growth on every side for the talented singer.
