Skepta is originally from Ogun State, Nigeria. In 2018, he received a chieftaincy title of Amuludun of Odo-Aje from his hometown in Ogun State. The title means “Chief Entertainer of Odo-Aje” and was earned due to his accomplishments in the music industry.
Mike Adenuga is from Oyo State in Nigeria. This is where he completed his primary and secondary school education at Ibadan Grammar School.
