After winning the Star Quest music talent competition in 2002 with the defunct two-man group, KCee Presh, the group walked into fame and fortune. They also released hit tracks that shook the music industry in the country to its foundation.
However, the group crashed and its members pursued their solo careers. Since they parted ways, KCee seems to have enjoyed more popularity than Presh.
KCee revealed that he once started music as a rapper, before meeting Presh.
On his background in music, he said, “When I was in the ghetto in Ajegunje (Lagos), my father was a DJ. I used to listen to a lot of songs; I used to sell records for him. Also, I was doing rap and singing in high school. From there, I joined the choir and that was where I met my former music partner, Presh and we started the group. Before then, I had a series of group that I joined; Boybands and stuffs.
“I ended up coming out and up professionally with Presh. That was how we started from the church. From the church, we won the Star Quest in 2002 and that was the beginning of fame for me, the climb to the top.”
