Unveiling XEL, The Emerging Force In Afro Pop/R&B

The music industry  will no doubt soon witness  another revelation in a  sensational singer,  XEL.

The talented dude  has vowed to make his genre of music the best among equals even has he maintained that  the music industry will never be the same again by the time he officially launches out .

  Born Prince Kerian Omeh Otaru on the  12th August 1990 into the royal families of Otaru and Okogbe with  both parents hailing from the two royal families at that time, which happened to be the two monarchy ruling councils in Dagbala village in Akoko–Edo North, Edo State Part of Nigeria.

He is from a family of eight children of which he is the last born.  He started his academic career in Dagbala Primary and Secondary Schools in Akoko Edo LGA, Edo State. He has delighted in singing and writing songs right from the tender age of 10 and also picked interest in playing football. It wasn’t a surprise therefore when he ended up being a musician because music runs in his family, He is also a good break-dancer which has added up to his stage gesticulation and articulation when performing his songs. He used to be part of a defunct dance group, called DXI, before he fully veered into music. He became musically active in  2006, his kind of music was inspired by listening to music by Afro beat legend,  Fela Anikulapo Kuti, King Sunny Ade, Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey, 2baba, Sunny Neji, Asa, Usher Raymond, R Kelly to mention but few. His real stage name , Kerian which had the suffix ‘XEL’, was coined from the English word ‘excel’ and inspired by his desire to triumph and excel in whatever he lays his hands on. And this, he said, is exactly what he is about to manifest and make real in the immediate future. He is signed to SkyDive Records.
