About Me

I copied this from my official facebook. I promise I don’t talk about myself in third person (yet)
Demi Oyebanji (A.K.A Emperor) is an independent recording artist and multi – instrumentalist, born June 1996, in Lagos, Nigeria. Although he grew up around the Creative Arts, with a mother who was a Drama Director and a Choir member, an independent gospel singer and a father who is a Playwright, Poet and Sound Engineer, Demi found his love for the stage and the crowds completely independently. This was first noticed when in nursery school and he was asked to perform “O Christmas Tree” and “Jolly old Saint Nicholas” as solos because a choir several grades above him had failed to learn the songs. Young Demi gave the performance and bowed to the crowd’s applause as his mother recalls – It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship between him and performance.

Demi attends the University of Western Ontario where he is studying Popular Music and Business Administration. He loves music and dedicates time to learn new musical instruments having learnt 37 instruments and mastered 8, including: Piano (his first love), guitar, drums, trumpet, trombone, bass, tuba and his main instrument vocals. Emperor would like to note here that he also plays a mean triangle. When not focused on school work, Emperor is busy with one musical act or the other, working with musicians and producers in London, Ontario; Toronto – also in Ontario Canada; Houston, Texas and Lagos, Nigeria.

His previous works, the singles “Badiya” and “Kryptonite” received accolades in Nigeria including newspaper interviews, TV shows and play time on radio and TV. After this, he released the album Checkpoint a major staple in his career. His most recent works are 2 freestyles currently gaining a lot of attention on facebook, Instagram and Youtube.
