Kelechi is an immigrants’ son. Born to a pair of Nigerian parents who migrated to Atlanta seeking education and opportunity, Kelechi is the manifestation of the modern American Dream. The 24-year old rapper, singer and producer blends the percussion and melodies of his parents’ homeland with the hard hitting drums and harmonies of Atlanta’s fundamental rap sound.
Contrary to the average Nigerian-American career path, Kelechi dropped out of college to pursue music full time, attempting to have his real life reflect the dedication of his lyrics.
His first single ‘WANT’, gained the attention of Mountain Dew’s music imprint, Greenlabel Sound and from there he garnered a partnership and a $50,000 grant to produce his debut project, Before the Quarter which is out now on all streaming platforms.
