Chinedu Okoli goes by the stage name Flavour N’abania, Mr. Flavour or just Flavour came into the limelight after releasing his hit track “Nwa Baby” remix. The 30-year-old Nigerian superstar was born on the 23rd of November 1983 in Enugu State, Nigeria. Flavour is known to hail from a large extended family. He is also a gifted songwriter, performer and recording artists. Some facts about Flavour N’abania that may not resonate well with majority of the people include the following:
Many people are aware of Flavour’s impressive vocals, his energetic dancing, as well as flawless singing in Igbo language. This has led to many believing that he actually started off his career as a singer or vocalist. Nevertheless, this is far from the truth. This Nigerian artist was more of an instrumentalist in his early music life. He began by playing drums and later took on piano playing. He took up singing much later.
Studied Music on Scholarship
Unlike many musicians who always aspire to become musicians from a tender age, Flavour’s journey was not well defined. To him music was more of a way of life rather than a career. He studied music on scholarship due to an opening rather than him wanting to do it. In addition, his family particularly his mum used to discourage him a lot.
A great dancer
Besides being a renowned recording artist, a good pianist, drummer and a singer, Flavour is rated among the top dancers. He is particularly fond of moving his torso to the dance tune. This is one reason that makes his fans quite charged especially the female ones.
King of High Life Music
This upcoming Nigerian musician normally does Highlife and Afro beat genres. His music will therefore have strong cultural influence. Many people regard him as the current king of highlife music as clearly seen from his massive hits as well as sold out crowds.
In a recent tour of Zimbabwe where the Nigerian artist had gone to debut his singing skills, Flavour failed to impress the crowd. Not only did he turn up late, but also killed the flavor on the ground by playing CDs rather than performing to the eagerly awaiting crowd.
Sings in Igbo dialect
Majority of Nigerian artists sing in Yoruba, Pidgin English, and English. This is based on the cultural influence considering that Yoruba is one of the most influential ethnic groups in the country. In contrast, Flavour sings in “Igbo” language, which is not as diverse and influential as Yoruba are but still manages to attract a large following from people who understand as well as those who do not quite understand the language.
Although regarded as one of the most successful artists of today, Mr. Flavour is perceived by a number of people to be an arrogant artist. Quite often, he has made derogative statements that have undermined other artists. This has earned him enemies especially in the music scene. Quite recently he arrogantly wrote off any possibility of collaborating with another popular artist, Waconzy.
Controversial Love Life
When it comes to love and relationship, Flavour joins the bandwagon of numerous artists who always have controversial relationships. Recently he had to deny that he was engaged to a Ms. Beverly despite the lady confirming their engagement. This is not the first time he has been in the news for things like that.
Flavour the Actor
Other than being a prolific figure in the music industry, Flavour also has talents in some unlikely fields. For instance, he is known to have tried his hands in acting and has actually done some productions. He has played simple or supporting roles in a number of Nollywood films but is yet to play a leading role in any major film.
One of his biggest tracks happens to be “Kworikwo”. This song proved to be quite a club banger that received a lot of airplay on TV and Radio. However, it later emerged that a group from Ghana known as Wutah had actually sued the singer for stealing the tempo, chorus, and rhythm from their song “Kotosa.”
All in all, Flavour is a skilled and talented artist who without question has managed to establish himself as one of Nigeria’s greatest musicians. If we are to go by his recent performance and achievement, his blossoming career has just started.
