Selebobo - Baby Sup


Udoka Chigozie Oku a.k.a, Selebobo was born into a Christian, musical & artistic family in the early nineties. He is the seventh of twelve children and he hails from Anambra State, Nigeria.

Selebobo is multitalented. He is not just an artiste; he is also a Song-writer, Dancer, Audio producer and Sound Engineer. It would not come as a surprise to know that he wrote and produced majority of his songs.

Creativity flows in his bloodline. His talent was nurtured by his father, Mr. Goddy Oku, a well known guitarist and musician of the 70's. He started ‘recording’ at the age of 7 in his dad's studio (Godiac Studios, Enugu) and by the time he was 12, he had started producing with his little Yamaha Djx keyboard.

For someone so young, Selebobo is a force to be reckoned with. In his own words, his style of music is ‘Naija Hip-hop which is fusion of African flavour and Hip-hop’. He is a breath of fresh air. His unique and dynamic style is heavily influence by his childhood idol, Michael Jackson. This influence can be seen in a few of his songs. His break-dance and his ability to hit those high notes, earned him the nickname, NIGERIAN MICHAEL JACKSON.
It is an understatement to say that Selebobo is very confident performing on stage. He has an undeniable energy which is very infectious. This is not a surprised as he has been dancing for years as part of a dance group, "SHADOWS” that competed in the Malta Guinness Street Dance Africa Competition 2009.
Despite his many talents, Selebobo is down-to-earth, kind-hearted and God-fearing. He believes that his inspiration comes from God. Impossibility is one thing he doesn’t believe in. Meeting him with a pencil opens a whole new world of difference about this rising star.

He is currently an undergraduate student of Fine Arts at UNIZIK. He believes in education and one must agree to the fact that he has managed to combine his music career with his studies successfully says a whole lot about his character.

Selebobo already has a Dance-hall single "KONJA", already creating a stir on the air waves and has received a copious amount of praise. He also recently dropped SHISHI which is receiving a lot of acclaim.

He is currently signed to PURE SOUNDS
