Emeka Okonkwo who is famously known as E-Money is his younger brother (Nigerian’s youngest billionaire and the chief executive officer of Five Star Music) and is also the official sponsor of his music career. 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.  

From the very start, Kcee wanted to become famous, but not in music. He enjoyed playing football, and his biggest dream was to become a professional player. 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.

In 2013, Kcee released his debut album “Take Over”. 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.
