Edoseed was born to the household of Mr. and Mrs. Aikpokpo Umogbaime Amalohi on the 12th Of May 1994. He was given the name Yusuph Anthony Aikpokpo.
He comes from a large family of nine. He has seven siblings; three sisters and three brothers. He was birthed in Afuze, which is his ancestral home. He hails from Owan East Local Government Area of Edo State.
Edoseed spent his childhood and teenage years residing in his parents’ home in the Afuze community before migrating to Lagos to pursue higher education.
Coming from a Southern family, Edoseed was made to imbibe an excellent attitude to work and respect elders from an early age. This was the handiwork of his parents, who ensured that he and his siblings were raised with good moral values.
As a young boy, Edoseed had already given his parents forewarning that he would go into the arts later in life through his activities at the time. This is because he often competed in music competitions in his school and community at large.
And he emerged among the top three contestants in some of these contests. Also, he showed interest in fashion and was good at matching outfits that made his dressing stand out from others at events.
Spending his formative years in Edo State, Edoseed attended leading private schools in Afuze for his elementary and secondary school education.
He also studied Computer Science at the University Of Lagos, bagging his Bachelor’s degree in 2014.
Edoseed‘s career trajectory can be traced to 2008 when he was based in Ibadan, southwest Nigeria. He had started off by composing music lyrics and recording the songs in a studio in his neighborhood.
During this period, he recorded a couple of mixtapes that did moderately well in his local community but weren’t enough to thrust him into the limelight.
Having the vision of becoming a superstar in the industry, Edoseed was unyielding in his dream and didn’t give up despite not recording success initially. Instead, he focused his energy on refining his sound, improving his songwriting skills, and learning about Afrobeats better so as to create music that people would love.
His efforts weren’t in vain because when he dropped his first official single, Selfish, in 2022, the song blew up over the roofs, shooting him into the limelight. Released in January 2022, Selfish has amassed thousands of streams in the past two months, helping Edoseed win fans of his music.
The singer and songwriter is now the new poster boy for Afropop sound in the industry, having risen through the ranks to become one of the artists with the most listened to songs. The success of Selfish in the Nigerian music market has positioned Edoseed for music gigs and collaborations with other rising artists in the industry.
Yielding to the demands of his fans, Edoseed shot and released the music video of Selfish on YouTube. Since its release, the video has garnered thousands of streams on the digital platform.
Update, the singer’s sophomore single was co-produced by Mcthebeatmaker and 3pleabeatz. Update has helped Edoseed secure more wins and extended his fan base from the South-South region to other geopolitical zones in the country.
In the short while that Edoseed has broken into the industry, he has amassed a large following on social media.
He currently has over 6.5k followers on Instagram.
