 2nd PLACE: Teeklef – Enigma (The Klef Mix) – 23% @ 7,864 Votes

Born to Chief and Chief Mrs. Boniface Unogu of Owerri-Nkwoji village in Imo State, Nigeria. Teeklef’s parents who were both singers in their hay days inspired him into joining the local church choir in Lagos, Nigeria. From leading choir renditions, Teeklef developed into a sensational R ‘n’ B singer, rapper, producer, and songwriter. His dexterity on the piano and drums; alongside his uniquely sonorous voice has earned rave reviews from music pundits.
Teeklef accepted an admission offer to the University of Indianapolis (UIndy) in the United States to pursue a degree in music, which he later abandoned for Human Biology. However he developed into a campus celebrity performing on every campus wide event. Soon major campuses in the Midwest including Indiana University Bloomington, IN, Manchester University, Manchester, IN and the University of Cincinnati, Ohio sought after him.
Teeklef decided to take his music all the way. While attending school he made music in between doing homework and school projects. He then invested every dime he made from his nine to five summer job into his art. Eventually, he single handedly built his own recording studio. He wrote, produced, mixed and mastered his own songs in the comfort of his studio(s) on one hand while he studied on the other, creating a balance.
Teeklef began to land gigs at local clubs and arena’s in Indianapolis, Chicago, New Jersey, Orlando, New York and Texas. He met with local and international artists, collaborating and networking. With the amount of progress he made, the independent artist began work on his first EP – On a C-Rius Note.
The whole project was completed within three weeks and was released on the 24th of July 2010. Prior to it’s release, it was sent to major record labels including Island Def Jam, Rostrum, Warner Bros and Atlantic Records; who all gave kudos to the young musicians effort. Teeklef recently concluded the Big Bang Tour sponsored by “Vh1 Save the music foundation” and “The Amanti House.” He has his eyes set on making an impact and dominating the music industry with his uniquely creative style of music.
Teeklef gets $1,000 for 2nd place! – CONGRATULATIONS!

He is also known by other aliases such as Omo To Gba Trophy, Oluwa Eminem, Oluwa Twister and so on. While in secondary school, OPZY took his time to write down lyrics which he sang to his classmates who often applauded him, so that gave him a bit of confidence to keep on writing, so he moved on from singing in his neighborhood only, and he decided he wants to build his career as a song writer and a rapper, but no one paid the young boy attention considering his age. His First Single “Money Makes Me Swagger” came and went without any impact in the music industry.
