More about Maquinox’s background
I was born and bred in the city of Benin in Edo State, Nigeria. The State is known as the heartbeat of the nation. I am from a polygamous family of 9 kids and 3 moms. Growing up, music and football has always been my passion but music and football were frankly not accepted by most parents as a career choice for their kids.
How did you become a singer and songwriter?
As a kid I was inspired by good sounds and slowly fixed the lyrics together, I gained more skills in music as I listened and mimicked my favorite artists at the time and I gained a great sense of reality in music while listening to the songs of the great Fela Kuti.
Ifo-ne-eme is my first official released single from my official EP ” The Income-ing “. The album contains 9 quality and fabulous tracks, which is a must listen for everyone.
This single is the result of hard work by many talents including Bobby Combz (Producer/Artist), Akapay (Producer/Artist), Derby (Artist) Uchezzy (Producer) and myself. Moving forward, my team and I are working music videos while cooking up some intriguing sounds for my next release in January 2021.
