Phemz foray into music began at the exuberant age of 12 when he began singing in church, but professionally kicked off his career in 2011 at the ripe age of 20.

He has continuously pushed against many odds to produce three tracks inclusive of two features and two collabos, with “bunmi and telemi”. His tracks are currently enjoying airplay on major radio stations

He was featured on the August 4th 2012 edition of the national Mirror newspaper where he expressed his desire for the future of his blossoming career. He was nominated as the most promising artiste of the year at the Top Naija Music Awards held at the Bespoke Centre, Lekki.

Phemz is musically dexterous as he plays the guitar and piano very well and possesses dancing steps that drives girls wild. He believes in the power of mentor-ship as he has Mr Segun Demuren (EME co-partner) as his mentor but holds God as his number mentor as he draws the best inspirations from him although the street and everything around him have fed his musical genius. He is also a model and is currently working on some singles and mix tapes.
