Born in 1997 to Nigerian parents, Citiboi! who happens to be the last born of the family is a native of Bayelsa state.

A product of a middle-class Nigerian family, Citiboi! was raised in the Christian faith and developed a deep liking for music as a teenager.

At an early age, he was inspired to take up singing as a profession having listened to Nigerian Afrobeat stars like 2baba, P-Square, D’banj, Wizkid, Davido, and Olamide.

The upcoming singer officially started making music in 2017 and dropped his first official single, “Real Life”, three years later (May, 2020), when he also won the Rookie of the Year at the Galaxy Music Award.

He made his first EP ‘State Of Mind’ in 2021.

Citiboi! recently dropped a single titled ‘More Life’ which, according to him, was made to celebrate his achievements.
