Exclusive Premiere: Yung6ix was born Onome Onokohwomo on July 8 in the heartland of Southern Nigeria. Though born to the upper echelons of society, he embraced the streets of Warri, Delta State, and was raised by music. Always a musically gifted mind, Yung6ix picked up the mic at a very young age. Studying the rap skills of the greatest MCs, he created a pattern of flow so uniquely distinct that they can never be replicated. He draws his inspiration from his surrounding, and also from a diverse collection of genres. While in high school, and after a series of successful rap battles, Yung6ix hooked up with a duo of likeminded artists, and a rap group “G-squad” was formed. The group went on to win a plethora of talent shows in and around southern Nigeria while garnering an ever increasing fan base. After high school he directed his talents into pursuing a solo career and has recorded over 100 songs, not including numerous features.
“‘The Man’ is the first single of my new album. The song depicts my story and how I have grown from someone they never believed in, into a motivational icon. It tells the story of the young boy with big dreams who has made it to the good life but still isn’t fully satisfied. The fame and money he has acquired aren’t enough to define his dreams as a success but he is still seen and admired as a success because of his achievements in Africa. On this song I state that I’m grateful but not yet satisfied based on my ambitions.” – Yung6ix
