#Enigma Finalist Hoodini Releases New Single "Life Through My Eyes"

When the #Enigma beat competition started, one of Don Jazzy's main aims was to help unearth the next generation of Nigerian hiphop talents based anywhere in the world and notjustOk.com was the platform to execute such mission. Today, 18 year old rapper Hoodini is the perfect example of such revelation.

Chuma Nwokike (born 24 March 1993), aka Hoodini, is a Nigerian hip-hop recording artist and record producer. He was born in Connecticut, USA but is of Nigerian origin. He spent his early years in the city of Abuja, Nigeria. At the age of 13, drawing inspiration from Kanye West, he grew a fondness for music and other forms of creative art, such as fine art, where he won various accolades as a young artist in drawing and painting.

In 2010, Hoodini released his first mix tape as a recording artist titled Vaudeville. The mix tape immediately grabbed the attention of fans boosting productions from worldwide producers such as UK based SlickMo, US based producer, G-LO, and Nigeria’s very own VC Perez. Later that year, Hoodini decided to pursue a B Sc. Degree in Electrical Engineering in the highly prestigious Cooper Union University in New York. After a one year in university Hoodini decided to pursue his dreams of a musical career and enroll in Full Sail University where he is currently majoring in Recording Art/Audio Engineering. He is also hard at work in putting together his debut album. His musical influences are artists like Kanye West, Drake, Jadakiss and 50 Cent.

"Life Through My Eyes" by Hoodini is a world-class hiphop single! We can see that making it among the Top 10 #Enigma finalists was no accident for this teenager. I see a BIG future ahead of him. Please listen and share your thoughts.

*O.O*

10 over 10...man
the reason i do not believe in talent hunt is that the best are most certainly to be the most hurt...
now this is a massive joint that proves my earlier point.
this can rival any song in the world even from our celebrated MCs
good job man

at 18? This is really good... I think however u might need to work a lil bit on "Control" u know? Develop the ability Tame ur Talent from being scattered and give it more focused near pin point direction (my Opinion). But the song is really good, I love the story, the concept and d instrumentation.
