Biography

Award winning Nigerian Artist 9ice, (born Abolore Akande on the 17th of January 1980s) known for his versatility, proverbial lyrics and unique style started his singing and writing career at the age of fourteen. Justifiable tagged “the hit maker”, 9ice conveys with his music, a new ethnic flavor and eclectic style that is uniquely his.

Years of studying the industry and refining his skills, has helped him develop his musical ideology and style. His powerful use of the Yoruba language and his lyrical abilities sets him apart from most artists in his genre and in his opinion is what makes him 9ice. This unique style, evident on all of his song some of which include his hit song Gongo Aso, Street Credibility, Party Rider, Little Money, Ganja Man, Talent dey waste as well as on collaborations like the song ‘Ruggedy Baba’ a hit track he did with Nigeria’s Ruggedman, and Le Fenu So, which he did with Lord of Ajasa, often leaves many listeners astonished at the magic of the delivery and the rhythmic harmony.

9ice, whose hit single “Gongo Aso” from his sophomore album also titled Gongo Aso has become a sort of national anthem in his home country, aspires to raise his game, push the creative envelope and transcend music stereotypes. He is working hard to build a solid, outstanding body of work that hopefully will outlive him. He aims in all ways to become a reference point for Nigerian artistes anywhere. Reminiscent of the likes of Fela, Youssour Ndour and Angelique Kidjo, he hopes to someday become a cultural ambassador with his music. He believes consistency, originality as well as old-fashioned hard work are the keys to achieving all these.
