Yung6ix Biography and Net Worth
Onome Onokohwomo (born 8 July 1989), better known by his stage name Yung6ix, is a Nigerian hip hop recording artist. Onokohwomo was born and raised in Warri, Delta State. While a student at FGC Warri, he engaged in rap battles and developed a friendlier relationship with like-minded students, which led to the formation of the hip hop group G-Squad. The group soon began performing at various talent shows in Delta State. Music remained their unmatched and true passion. Yung6ix’s love for music was so deep, he kept on going till it got to a level they had to accept him for who he is.
After graduating from high school, Onokohwomo relocated to western Nigeria to pursue a career in music and enrolled at Oduduwa University. He derived his stage name Yung6ix from his high school nickname “6ixty”. Shortly after he moved to Lagos, he continued to record music; his song “I’m an African” captured the attention of A&R Gbemi Ereku, who signed him to his 411 Entertainment Company in 2009. By 2010, he began to attract media attention after his cover version of “Oleku” went viral on the internet.
On 2 April 2011, Vanguard announced that 411 Entertainment had signed a joint-venture deal with Storm Records. The partnership would help improve Yung6ix’s music career. In September 2011, Yung6ix released the fourth track from his Green Light Green project, “Oh My Gosh”, which earned him both “Lyricist on the Roll” and “Best Rap Single” nominations at the Headies Awards the following year.
In 2013, Yung6ix floated his imprint “Kash Kamp” which houses Percy as well as talented producer Otee Beatz. On 4 September 2013, Yung6ix’s camp welcomed a hand offered from “Trick Billionaire MusiQ” for both parties to partner with the end-result of taking Yung6ix and his brand out of Africa and sharing his brilliance with the rest of the world.
Yung6ix has been dubbed the next big thing in the African hip-hop scene by critics.
