DefJam Recordings Africa artiste Kido Madiba is a multi talented brand. He dons the title of singer, songwriter and actor.
Known for his energetic performances and enigmatic personality, his musical style is best described as sounds from home, a fusion of Afrobeats and with other genres, while still retaining the core essence of the Nigerian sound. Kido Madiba has an extended catalogue of over 200 written pieces. He constantly strives to redefine his sound and diversify his creative process to create music that appeals across borders.
Born Nelson Agbo on July 18th same day as Nelson Mandela, the Nigerian born of the Idoma descent found the inspiration for his stage name from the heroics of the freedom fighter and former South African President. The new musical sensation holds a B.Sc. in Computer Science and an MBA in International Business from Cardiff Metropolitan University, Wales, UK but abandons it all for his first love, music.
Kido Madiba is taking advantage of the current diversity to solidify his place among his peers and advance the African music scene by contributing in its meteoric rise globally as the new wave as he travels the path to stamp his name amongst the pantheon of Afrobeats greats.
