Lagos – New kid on the block, Ikechukwu John Raphael aka Ma- King is heating up the entertainment space with his latest single, Kwajim.
“I am so excited right now. My song Kwajim is making waves. Kwajim means vibration in Igbo. It was produced by Playchord,” Ma King enthused.
Born April 7, 1987 in Enugu, the indigene of Anambra State started singing at the age of 19, miming in school competitions and clubs. He was part of  a group called Hot Boys but later left and  joined a group called Dog Zone after which he clinched the award for Best Rapper in 2000 during a music competition that involved over 15 secondary schools in his community.
Among others, he has done collabo with the likes of Terry G, Butiza, a South African hit maker, Flavour, Zikora, and Rock 9.
Commenting on his inspiration, he said: “My inspiration comes from God. My entire family especially my mother is in total support of my choice of career.
“Internationally I would love to collaborate with Drake, Beyonce, Rihanna, Adele and Oliver Mtukuzi of South Africa. On the home front, I would love to collaborate with Tiwa Savage, Wande Coal, Tuface, Phyno and P Square.”
In the nearest future, Ma-king says his dream is to win awards like the Grammys, BET Awards.
