Djinee Born and bred in Nigeria started music at home by partaking in the early morning ritual of listening to Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen, Kenny Rogers and the likes. The Chief Priest being his father, was an avid music lover and Djinee went on to forge a career in music. His journey into entertainment saw him go into classical Music as a tenor,in the early days. Rock and R n B took his interest not too long after.
Not satisfied, he decided to delve into the electronic Media, first by running a pirate radio station in the town of Ogbomoso, before taking up a presenting job at the top of the line entertainment and lifestyle channel, SOUNDCITY. Here he put in 5yrs working as a Producer/Anchorman. During this time his love for music never waned as he continued to push for recognition commercially in music. During this quest, his powerful yet emotion laden (almost stainless) voice caught the ears of a record label “Westside Inc” where he released his debut hit single “Ego”. This brought him instant success and then critic acclaim followed. His pitch perfect vocal ability on the song brought him accolades amongst which are “Best new artiste ” at the Nigerian Music Awards in London and several nominations. In December 2007, he released the second single “i no dey shame” and this established him as a force to reckon with. The video was subsequently aired on major TV stations. In May 2008 at the Nigerian music awards he was presented with the Voice of the year award. In June 2009 He released the self titled album titled “DJINEE”.
In 2010 he picked up 4 Channel O, 3 Soundcity MVA and 2 Nigerian MVA nominations. He is currently preparing for the release of his sophomore album.
