Born in Kaduna during the Sharira crises within a military Barracks, Keleya candidly discusses the challenges of her upbringing, marked by a lack of parental presence and stability.

I was moved around frequently to different households," shedding light on the profound impact these circumstances had on her perception of love during her formative years.
In her adolescent phase, Keleya reflects on the complexities of past relationships, attributing her struggles to an abundance of unreciprocated love. This narrative sets the stage for her inaugural song, where she channels her emotions and experiences into a poignant musical expression.
