Full Biography And Net Worth Of Veteran Rapper Konga

Lawal Olalekan Olumo, better known as Konga, is a veteran Afro-pop Nigerian singer and rapper who ruled the Nigerian music industry in the 2000s, when 2face, D’banj, and J Martins were popular faces. However, like many other singers of the time, Konga has faded into obscurity, and little is known about him today.

Early Life and Education

Lawal Olalekan Olumo, Konga’s full name, was born on January 9th. His birth year is unknown, but he is thought to be in his late forties. Konga grew up in the same neighborhood as popular singer and actor Banky W, in Ebute Meta, Lagos State, Nigeria. Konga’s parents and siblings have not been identified. He attended primary and secondary school in Lagos State, Nigeria. There are no details on whether he continued.

Career

The baby Konga crooner has been interested in the music industry since he was a young boy, singing all over the Ebute Meta area of Lagos state. He began with performances such as Indomie Groove under the auspices of Larry Kay Events in Nigerian universities and polytechnics. He rose to prominence, however, following the release of his song “Baby Konga” in 2003, which quickly went viral. However, due to the song’s explicit lyrics, NBC later banned Baby Konga.

Konga went on to release his debut album, “KONGA H2O,” featuring music stars like “2Face IDIBIA,” Dj Zeez, “Ja won si,” and Morachi on “Holl It” at the end of 2005. Lori Le by Project ft Konga is a popular song that many people will never forget, as it has a beat that will keep you on your feet even today.

Konga is well-known for singing in “Eno,” an ancient African language from Badagry that is popular among traders in Kwara and Badagry. He is still the only Nigerian musician who creates music in this genre. For those who are unaware, the Eno language was used to communicate without revealing information to a third party during the slave trade era.

Konga released a number of songs between 2008 and 2010, including Money Making Machine, Bebe ‘n Lo, and the popular street anthem ‘Kabakaba,’ which featured the late Dagrin and Remi Aluko. Konga’s album “KABAKABA” was released in June 2011 and featured YBNL boss Olamide in “Ewo Won,” J.J.C n 419 squads in “Serious Spending,” M.I & Buckwylla in “Call Me Boo,” and many more.

While Konga is still involved in music as the CEO of Funky Monkey Entertainment, he is no longer the well-known figure he once was.

Personal Life

There are no details about Konga’s wife or children, but he is thought to be married. Konga recounted how he survived a car accident and was robbed in November 2021.
