Kcee got married in march 2010 to Cynthia Ijeoma Oduah with lovely two kids, a boy and a girl named Kanye Okonkwo and Somto Okonkwo respectively.

In his young years, he managed to play for two local football clubs – “Julius Berger” and “Puma”. However, everything changed when Kingsley joined the church choir.  

Kcee and his long time partner and friend Hajie played as a duo for 12 years. They met in a church choir and were in the choir together till both entered the Star Quest TV reality show together and they won the show. Their work together as music partners gave them both a little recognition until 2011 when they split, both chasing their own careers quite separately.
