Naeto C

Naetochukwu Chikwe “Naeto C” was born on December 17th in Houston Texas. He spent his earlier years growing up in England and Nigeria within a household hugely influenced by music. His likeness for music grew fast and was articulated into other creative art forms, most specifically poetry, which took him to various competitions and earned him accolades as a young poet during his earlier years.

Naeto attended the prestigious Atlantic Hall Secondary School, Epe Lagos, and later moved to the United States of America to further his higher education at SUNY Old Westbury and a year later, George Washington University. While in the states, Naeto linked up with Uzikwendu and his brother, Ikechukwu, an up-and-coming Hip Hop artist out of Washington Heights, NY. The trio formed the World Famous Akademy, an aspiring Record Label but most importantly they developed a bond of brotherhood between them and became very close friends.

While in the States, Naeto C recorded over 40 to 50 songs as a solo artist and about 25 songs with the World Famous Akademy as a group. He graduated in 2004 with a B Sc. in Biology.

His original intention was to pursue a professional career within the medical field but like most creative artists, “Naeto C”, opted to drop the medical career path and follow one that would be more accommodating to his creative side. His budding sense of self-employment, being an entrepreneur, and his numerous business ideas were catalysts to making a career change, however, furthering his educational background still remained a priority.

Within this period, Storm Records had expressed interest in signing the World Famous Akademy having heard their material on a local radio station. Coincidentally, one of the co-owners of Storm, Obi Asika, was an older cousin of Naeto. Years prior to Storm indicating interest in the World Famous Akademy, Naeto had already played earlier material of himself and his group to Obi.

After receiving Obi’s message from South Africa about signing the World Famous Akademy trio, Naeto notified the rest of the group and introduced Ikechukwu to Obi over the phone and in person in December 2005. A year later both Naeto and Ikechukwu would return to Nigeria at the beginning of 2006 and Ikechukwu would release his debut album titled “Son of the Soil”, laying the foundation for “Naeto C” and the World Famous Akademy.

While in Nigeria, Naeto got admission into the University of Hertfordshire, to pursue a Master in Biotechnology. Having found the ideal recording home that would provide the flexibility to nurture a career in music alongside a Masters’s program in the UK, signing a record deal with Storm was a perfect match. Working as an in-house producer; with his newly discovered production team; “ET-Quake” (Consisting of TY Mix and VC Perez).
