Udoka Chigozie Oku a.k.a, Selebobo was born into a Christian, musical & artistic family in the early nineties. He is the seventh of twelve children Selebobo hails from Ukpo, Oranto Village, Dunukofia L.G.A. of Anambra State.

Selebobo is multitalented. He is not just an artiste; he is also a Song-writer, Dancer, Audio producer and Sound Engineer. It would not come as a surprise to know that he wrote and produced majority of his songs.

Creativity flows in his bloodline. His talent was nurtured by his father, Mr. Goddy Oku, a known guitarist and musician of the 70’s. He started ‘recording’ at the age of 7 in his dad’s studio (Godiac Studios, Enugu) and by the time he was 12, he had started producing with his little Yamaha Djx keyboard.
In an interview he talked about how it all started: 

“When I was little, in primary school, it’s kind of funny (laughs) but I grew up knowing that I can always go to a studio; my dad owned a studio – he still does. Every time I finish from school, he takes me to the studio before I go home, so that has been my life. I found myself playing with some of his instruments – he didn’t like it at first but I was stubborn, he eventually let me be. When I finished secondary school I decided to take it to the next level.

His parents encouraged him.  They all were in support, unlike some artistes that often tell stories of how their parents did not support their career.  His own is different.  They are fully in support of his music career  and they’re always there for him.

For someone so young, Selebobo is a force to be reckoned with. In his own words, his style of music is ‘Naija Hip-hop which is fusion of African flavour and Hip-hop’. He is a breath of fresh air. His unique and dynamic style is heavily influence by his childhood idol, Michael Jackson. This influence can be seen in a few of his songs. Despite his many talents, Selebobo is down-to-earth, kind-hearted and God-fearing. He believes that his inspiration comes from God. Impossibility is one thing he doesn’t believe in. Meeting him with a pencil opens a whole new world of difference about this rising star.
When asked in an interview;
When did you drop your first single?
“Really, I can’t remember the year.  I think it should be after my secondary school.  That was my first official single but that’s not the first song I recorded.  The first song I recorded was in primary school, but I didn’t drop it.  Recording, for me is not today’s thing.  It’s something that I have been doing over the years.” He replies.


He dropped three songs officially before Triple MG. He counts his career from that song, Yoyo that is a hit.  He dropped two after that before joining Triple MG.
On his relationship with Iyanya and how they met; he said he started developing a relationship between them in 2013 he believed there was this chemistry between them because he actually wanted to work with Iyanya so they started as a family, from there he saw himself being signed.

As a graduate of Fine and Applied Arts, you should not be surprise if you see him busy drawing with a pencil, so that makes him also an artist. Selebobo is the producer for majority of the song in the Made Men Music Group {Tripple MG} Album “The Evolution” released on 29th May 2014. He has his production signature behind alot of hit singles on the likes of Johnny by Yemi Alade , Ada Ada by Flavour and Mr Oreo by Iyanya just to mention a few.

Speaking on why he produced and wrote the song Johnny for Yemi Alade
You wrote and produced “Johnny”, what inspired the concept?
He says; From my own point of view, I felt that the female artistes in the industry weren’t really kicking the guys in the “ass”.  So I really thought of Johnny because the guys have been known to use hardcore female names like; Ifunanya, Carolina, Uju – and I was like come on why haven’t female artiste done something like this. I looked for an English name that we pronounce in a local way, that’s why I chose Johnny – I believe that’s why it stuck.

In 2015 Yemi Alade thought it wise to dedicate her MAMA award to her producer Selebob. She said if not for him the Jonny song would have been an RnB song and not a dance hall hit

When it comes to Selebobo’s stage performances,you don’t want to blink at all.As a break dancer,he drew more inspiration from his group, “SHADOWS”, that partook in the Malta Guinness Street Dance Africa Competition 2009.He believes that all his inspiration comes from God and well nurtured by his Father, Mr.Goddy Oku, a well known guitarist and musician of the 70’s.


He’s been rumored to be dating sexy female singer Beverly Ukegbu singer Flavour’s Ex-girlfriend. There has been no confirmation to this though.
