skd-2*Whether you call it “fate” or “destiny” or “a calling,” the fact is that some people are born to create music.

Nigerian born rapper SKD (Sound Knock Down) has participated in various local  and international talent shows, including O2 in the park , the New York  Music festival , LA music Festival , and performing in different night clubs and venues in the UK,  USA and Nigeria.

SKD began entertaining and rapping when he was in primary school. He was heavily influenced by Kurtis Blow, 2Pac, Run dmc, Public Enemy, NWA, Nas and DMX. SKD soon began developing his own unique style of rapping, from an early age he entered and won local and national competitions, he made his first demo with his brother providing keyboard and sound engineering support.

This guy raps, sings, and has real passion for the Guitar. SKD has a very focused approach and ideas for his art.

“I make money from what I do, there’s nothing wrong with that, but I love the music more.”
