Early Life and Education

Udoka Chigozie Oku was born on July 29, 1992, in Enugu State, Nigeria. He is the eldest of his family’s twelve children, and one of his brothers, Okechukwu Oku, is a well-known director. Throughout the 1970s, his father, guitarist and musician Goddy Oku, performed at local events. He was thus exposed to various instruments, including the guitar, and his musical knowledge was expanded. When he was twelve years old, he began to create music on his keyboard.

Udoka completed his elementary and secondary education in Enugu State before transferring to the Nnamdi Azikiwe University in Awka, Anambra State, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in fine arts.

Career

Selebobo’s stage performance is one of the skills that brought him to the limelight. He found extra inspiration for his break dancing from his team, “SHADOWS,” which competed in the 2009 Malta Guinness Street Dance Africa Competition. He thinks that God is the source of all of his inspiration, which his father, Mr Goddy Oku, a well-known guitarist and artist from the 1970s, has fostered effectively. At age 7, he began recording in his father’s Enugu studio, Godiac Studios, and at age 12, he transitioned towards producing using his tiny Yamaha Djx keyboard.
