It was back then we knew artistes by their real names and not just their stage name alone.
With the evolution of social media, it’s been hard to keep up with the tradition of knowing artists’ birth names together with their stage names.
We’ll make it easier for you though. Here are ten artistes whose both names you didn’t know:
1. Khingsolex – Suleiman Suleiman Hussaini
With replete hits to his name, I bet you didn’t know Khingsolex bears Hussani. The popular phrase we’ve been accustomed to is “Okanlawo”. Well, now you know.
2. Ojcent – Ojo Festus Alabi
Ojo Festus Alabi sounds like that name a footballer would bear. Now we know what the OJ in “Ojcent” stand for.Ojo.
3. Badwiz – Mohammed Sani
4. Moderate – Hassan Mahmud Abdulmalik
Muslim boy that look like a christian brother. But is there a connection between Moderate and Mahmud? Maybe the letter M
5. Vennom – Hussaini Zakari
One source was telling me Vennom is a Christian name (Lolx). Next time you see him, say Hussaini Zakari
6. Salexy – Saleh Micheal
Salexy parents think naming their son Micheal he going to reflect to him like (Angel Micheal) not knowing he going to be a Afro pop artist that sing for Yetunde, beg Yetunde for love second chances (Broken) and fooling Yetunde that she his my girlie oh.
7. Yosaintee – Emmamuel Gabriel
What a sweet name. Emmanuel. He should be bearing Pastor Emmanuel or Pastor Gabriel, How come you’re now Yosaintee?
8. Sukzy Dab – Suleiman Abubakar
Wait. Same guy that sang Tunga Ne? Yeah Sukzy Dab, Sukzy Dab suppose to be bearing Mallam Abubakar, why Sukxy Dab?
9. Lizanel – Lizzy Nwafor
I bet Lizanel parents thought she will be a useful instrument in the house of God (Choir, Band). But Sister Lizzy Nwafor had other plans.
10. Modeeva – Joy Stephen Fejiro
What a sweet name Joy. How come you’re now Modeeva?.
