Egenti Washington Maduka Young started to make music in his early days. In 2001, he teamed up with his friends to form a group called H.O.T Bonez. They were based in Orile-Iganmu, Surulere – Lagos. In due time, he broke out to pursue his dream as ‘Young Dinero’. Today he is simply known as E-Gent.
The singer who started as a hardcore rapper, later switched to explore other genres of the music art. According to him, the zeal to touch more people with his music explains the switch. “I believe music is a tool for communication and it will only be fair for everybody to understand and relate with my music, that is why I am in this business”, he says.
Just released is his new single and video titled “Iroko”. It is a mild reggae song with a bounce that will still get one moving. Explaining the message behind the song, E-Gent says, “Let’s just say it is my way to let ‘that special girl’ know how she makes me feel”.
E-Gent is signed to Gabson Management, a U.K based entertainment outfit.
