Born Chimuanya Tobenna Okereke, Chimy is a native of Anambra state. He was born and raised in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He grew a bone for music while watching his elder brother who is a rapper, rehearse and throw lines. This cultured into songwriting while he develops into a singer/songwriter with influences from the likes of Timaya, D’banj, Flavour, Burna Boy and Mr Eazi as he grew older. Chimy started making music professionally in 2017. He released his official single “Text Back” in the same year and and later on took out time to learn music production and sound engineering.
He classifies his music as “Afro Fusion” because his sound was chiseled by afrobeat, highlife and reggae influences at a high propensity. Chimy’s lyricism drips with witty and cheerful sensuality. He is popularly known for hit singles like ‘Major Curing’, and the sensational record; ‘Trips & Munchies’ which not only features Dandizzy and Dr Barz; but was the first single off his album ‘Major Curing’.
