FULL BIOGRAPHY

Easily one of the most anticipated fast rising artiste of this new breed of fresh artist in Nigeria, MICHEAL OVIE IKAKA aka VITO is credited with being one of the key figures with a distinct and eclectic style with a melodious voice that can make one stay rooted to a spot when one listens to him sing.

His distinctive blend of reggae, R&B and traditional African musical influences creates a vibe that is contemporary and universal while maintaining a clear African identity. Just as he has done with the seemingly effortless balance of huge commercial success with awe-inspiring critical …

Born in LAGOS state, but from the URHOBO TRIBE speaking part of DELTA STATE, in the early 90s to Mr. and Mrs. IKAKA, the young man fell in love with music from a tender age.

In 2012, VITO recorded the phenomenally successful solo debut, SOFA which had W4 on it, the WAGBA CONTROL CROONER

Two brilliant offerings (“OGBU”, 2012 and “RUN THE TOWN FT. SOLIDSTAR”, 2011 plus the revolutionary  successful GBADUN UR WAY (2013) and almost two dozen hit collabos later, the Aviara, Delta state native has proved his class, versatility and staying power beyond doubt and earned the status of a superstar.

THE MAN

Down to earth, accessible, charming, funny and engaging, VITO has won himself a great measure of respect and admiration from people for his humility, warmth and empathy.

VITO has dedicated a great amount of time, effort and resources towards reaching out to fellow humans in need. ”What we do for ourselves dies with us but what we do for others remains immortal” he posits. He believes also that help is best served quietly. “The important thing is that the beneficiary feels the impact of a good deed. He/she doesn’t even need to know the identity of the benefactor but you know sometimes publicists and management won’t just let it go unreported”, he concludes.
