His stage name is B Bless Ben and he is really young-looking. We had a little chitchat with him and discovered a few things about the young musician.
His full name is Emmanuel Benedict Ogah and he hails from Iyala in Cross River state. He is a budding rapper and hiphop artiste set to surprise us all. Follow the talk;
How did you come about your stage name?
My stage name was given to me by MC drunk of blessed memory at a carnival I performed in Ibadan. B comes from my birth name Benedict.
What inspired you to venture into music making
It is because a lot of people now jump into the industry with whack music. So i want to use my unique skills in music to change the perception of art in Nigeria.
Tell us about your Childhood and family background
I am from a family of four children which consists of three boys and a girl. My childhood was not a rosy one, I feel sad when ever I think about it. My mom is alive but Dad is late now.
What has been your greatest challenge and success as a budding Nigerian artiste
My greatest challenge was when I was called by MC drunk to come to the studio, he turn on the mic and gave me a beat without telling me it was a test.
But I thank God that I passed that day and after the production, I got invited to a carnival to perform the track and it was loved by the people I call my fans now.
You have a unique style, which top artiste would B Blezz Ben like to feature
Yea, Dagrin that was when he was alive. The guy’s music lifts me whenever I am down, I play his album and I bounce back strong. Now it is Olamide because he equally motivates me in the same way that Dagrin does.
Any projects we need to watch out for?
Yes, I have some singles coming through like “Rap Messiah” , “Greatness” and “Robin Hood” so keep a tab.
