From Royal Ezenwa
Born in Jos, Nigeria, on July of 1989, Royal came to the United States at the age of 4 years old. Shortly after, his parents divorced and his mother gained full custody of Royal and his younger sister.
Starting life in the shelter for battered woman with his mother and younger sister, they started life from scratch in a new country with no family, no home, no money...only God. Never raised with much in a single parent home with a very protective mother, Royal wasn't allowed to do a lot of activities other children his age were used to. Through many struggles, trials, and hardships that occurred, primarily due adjusting to life in a new country, his mother from his youth, instilled in him the eternal value of the Gospel. Though raised in a christian household, the response to commit to the Lord and to pursue a relationship with Jesus began the summer prior to his first semester in college.
Influenced heavily by artist such as Cross Movement, Flame, Lecrae, Da' T.R.U.T.H. and many more, Royal was inspired to start writing music under the encouragement of a close friend. It was in 2010, as a college sophomore that Royal wrote his first lyrics. What initially began as a joke, exposed and sparked a gift he never knew existed. It was there that his passion for music began to grow.
Residing now in Charlotte, NC, Royal Ezenwa is just like any other young man his age. Impacted by the Gospel, he desires to express his passion and faith through Hip Hop. "Music is an expression of what your passionate about right? An overflow of who you are and what you believe. Well I'm no different, I'm just passionate about Jesus."
Royal Ezenwa's style would be described as a hybrid between East Coast and Southern style delivery. Through clever punch lines coupled with quality production, Royal Ezenwa is sure to capture his listener's attention.Though still considered a freshmen, Royal Ezenwa is looking to have a promising future.
