Biography Intro: Nigerian rapper/vocalist/songwriter Blackmagic was born and raised in Lagos. He grew up Efemena Mukoro and began work as a musician in the late 2000s, developing the amateur interest in sound recording and rapping he explored in his younger days into a full-on hip-hop persona named Ejay. He quit school to focus on music and eventually scored a deal with Syndik8 Records in 2010 with his unique style that drew on soul, Afro-beat, and a humorous, sometimes quirky rap style.
