Childhood and Education

Faze was born into a family of nine children on March 7, 1977, in Festac Town, Lagos. Faze resides in a large family as the fourth sibling. 

It is said that the family as a whole has developed into a harmonious singing ensemble due to the considerable amount of time spent in prayer singing praises. The majority of his academic career was spent in Lagos, a city situated in the southeastern region of Nigeria.


Career as a Musician 

After securing the DBN Karaoke Championship in 1994, Faze initiated his initial public relations initiative. Prior to his affiliation with the Plantashun Boiz, he operated as a rapper going by the moniker Lyrical Orge. 


During the last three months of 2004, Faze independently released his debut studio album, entitled “Faze Alone.” A number of music charts incorporated the number-one recordings “Faze Alone,” “Angel Gabriella,” “Miss U,” and “Na True.” The album’s debut contributed to the further establishment of his unique musical style, which he termed “universal flavor” and fused with elements of R&B, Reggae, Pop, Dancehall, Ragga, Soul, and African influences.


The sophomore album from Faze, titled “Independent,” was released in 2006. The release of Faze’s third studio album occurred in 2008. “Originality,” the initial composition of the album, is also what gives the album its name. Additionally, the singles “Spend My Money” and “Am In Love” achieved widespread success. “REFAZED,” the fourth album by Faze, was finalized and released in 2012. The album’s lead single, “Am In The Mood,” received extensive radio and television exposure.


Two more tracks, “Ifeoma” and “Lambo,” were added to his discography in 2013, and in response to the single releases, the singer simultaneously published music videos for each. Faze, in conjunction with Wyclef Jean, with whom he co-wrote the song “Proud To Be African,” has performed alongside internationally renowned foreign artists.

Faze has supported a number of reputable and well-known companies with his musical expertise, including Star for the annual Star Trek Event, Globacom for the National Globacom Campus Storm, Guinness for the Guinness Extra Smooth Discovery Shows, and Sprite for Spriteball, their talent development competition for children.
