Born to a music-loving family in Calabar, Cross River State where he was raised as a Christian and exposed to music through the church choir and his Father’s music tapes which were mostly Afrobeat and Reggae songs. His primary genres are Hip Hop, Reggae, and Dancehall.
He started recording songs in 2012 and became the lead songwriter for a now-defunct gospel music group known as DAX Gospel. The group was soon given an award as the Best Gospel Music Group at the Calabar Gospel Music Awards in 2014, together they ministered in many events – being a blessing to youths in the city of Calabar.
Today, Ani D’Blessed is a solo independent artist and he makes inspiring music.
