He grew up in Ikorodu part of Lagos state having schooled and raised on the streets.
Slimcase started his career as a comedian where he performed for friends, family members and social gathering before music found him.
He came across a friend in 2011, Beat by Sars “not to be confused with Sarz the beat”, who helped him record his first ever vocals for a song in Akoka in a dingy studio near the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
Slimcase started his music career as a rapper having been influenced by the likes of Eminem, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Dr Dre and many others.
Slimcase rose to fame after capitalizing on the new dance step “Shaku Shaku” with his song “Oshozondi”. At that time the likes of Olamide’s “Wo”, Small doctor “Penalty” were the rave of the moment.
Otunba Lamba as fondly called, brought his unique style of Wobe sound to cut across the country with many music lovers already appreciating it. With this new style, everyone began to adopt the Shaku Shaku trend with more hit songs like Idowest’s “Omo Shepeteri” and Mr Real’s “Legbebge”.
