Elvis E was born and raised in Benin City, Nigeria. He was guided into the music scene by his elder brother in 1997, where he began playing the piano in his local church ‘CGM’. He moved to Lagos in 2000 and became a producer at Noval Africa Eko Real-Mix in 2002. This was one of the largest music productioncompany and recording studio in West Africa. This allowed Elvis to work alongside Nigerian’s top Gospel Artist such as Olufunmi, Sammie Okposo, Bouqui, Agboola Shadare, Segun obe and countless others. Elvis also had the opportunity to play at House on the Rock Church, Lagos from 2002 to 2004.
