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.

For many of the songs featured on this album, he collaborated with great Nigerian artistes, including Wizkid, Timaya, D’Banj, Phyno, Davido, Don Jazzy, Flavour N’abania, and the others. It was very warmly received by both the critics and the public. His first full album gained him a lot of nominations for prestigious awards. Kcee ended up winning the Hip-Hop World Awards, KORA Awards, and Channel O Awards nominations. 

After that, the career of Kcee started going up. He got a lot of nominations at such award ceremonies as The Headies, and won the Hip Hop World Revelation of the Year, with his song “Take Over”. He also managed to sign a lot of profitable endorsement contracts. For example, he signed a multi-millionaire deal with MTN. Another profitable deal of his was signed with the company “Magnum”. He was also appointed as Nigeria’s Peace Ambassador by the former first lady, Patience Jonathan.
