Yung Maro – Carolina f. Wondaboy + Ma Show f. Lumi
Yung Maro (real name – Augustine Efeadue Junior) is a well-educated young man bearing a rare musical style and a genuine passion for creating songs; in other words, he is more than just your typical Nigerian music artist with a story. In his words, “music has always played an important role in my life, keeping me from the streets and giving me a sense of responsibility”.
Currently making good music that’s within the Hiphop and R&B genres, Yung Maro, the University of North-East London (popularly known as London Metropolitan University) graduate (B.Sc, Computer Science) also runs an Indie record label Dynasty Entertainment and has released a 5-track EP titled “Take Over” on August 31, 2013.
Drawing musical influences from rappers such as Kanye West, Jay Z and the Hiphop group, NWA (N****z With Attitude), his rapping style definitely can be traced to the bloodline of the aforelisted. Yung Maro, who’s left the shores of Nigeria from an early age and completed high school in the UK has been heavily involved in producing commercial-grade music. Seeing himself as a man on a mission, he’s left the UK (where he’s been for most of his life) and now resides in Lasgidi, Nigeria; his vision is to become one of the top-rated artists respected by his own people and as such, looks to actualize his dream with his Indie record label, by signing up-and-coming artists with special talents and exceptional styles to compliment the hard work and dedication he transmits in producing his music.
Yung Maro presently enjoys massive radio airplay (an early taste-maker being Brilla FM) for two buzzing singles off his 5-track EP, aptly titled “Carolina”, which features WondaBoy and “Ma Show”, which features Lumi; both of these tracks were produced by Olele. Having also worked with Cartiair and Ogann, word has it that his debut music video is scheduled for release in the 1st quarter of the year 2014.
