Hero (real name – Chukwu Samuel Chinonso) hails from Nara-Isiogbo, Nkaku East, Enugu state; from a family of 9, and being the 2nd to the last occupying the 8th position, he started his music from a tender age of 9 with the church youth choir, getting his praise on with the then Anambra Gospel Youth Choir. With massive support from his parents, his love for music became evidently unstoppable as he continues to express himself in different ways, inspired by his immediate environment; Hero is a record producer, song writer, recording/performing artiste, blessed with the ability to make good sound and quality music. He has learnt to hybridize the Nigerian local and dialectical melody that distinguishes his music (Highlife); over the years, he has gained vast experiences by working with different prominent names in the industry with the likes of Don Jazzy, TSpize, Olu Maintain, P-Square, Bondo Krazzy, H-Boi, African China, DJ Xclusive, Gbemisola (of MTN Project Fame 6), Slick Joe, Side One, Deebee and lots more.
He painstakingly involves himself in ground-breaking projects that has lunched him on different significant platforms such as Love Season Concert by MTN (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013), Felabration 2010-2011, Lagos Youth Week 2010, Kennis Music Easter Fiesta 2015, Mr. Ideal 2015, Enugu State Road Block 2014, Help Kelechi Walk Concert 2013, Sukus International Lometogo 2013, Africa Supersound Ghana 2013, Malaika Awards Cote D’Ivoire 2013, theme song for Tourism & Culture, Enugu state Government Official Campaign Song for the Governor elect of Enugu state – Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (which enjoyed massive airplay in the south east region of the country).
Enjoy the self-produced song by Hero titled “#Obim,” meaning ‘my heart’ in Igbo dialect; he promises to release 3 more songs before the year runs out and that includes a remix to his hit song, “Enugu Amaka,” featuring an A-list artiste, and he also plans on dropping a couple of videos as well; share your thoughts. | ENJOY!!!
