The Abia state indigene born on the 30th day of June in the year 1995 grew up in Lagos state till the age of 15 when he moved to Effurun, Delta state. Here Gpenzy studied Petroleum Engineering in FUPRE for 4 years and suddenly dropped out for personal reasons. A year later in 2015, he moved to the east to study Industrial Chemistry at Nnamdi Azikiwe University (NAU), where he graduated with a second class upper before relocating to Lagos to pivot his career.

Not everyone understands what this truly is about. I have been in the same cell as boys who were murdered just because nobody came for them. Today we make history. They promised us change but the Bible says “the Violent ones take it by force” #Endsars #Endpolicebrutality #Awkaprotests
He would be dropping his brand new single tagged ASA on the 30th of October, 2020.
