MBRYO ARTISTE PROFILE:
Mbryo was born in Warri to the family of Rev. Omoferi Akpedeye; in Delta state which was where he had his primary & secondary school education. Growing up wasn’t much fun because his Dad was really strict (Y’know pastors now); hence he didn’t have much friends, No outings but his dad taught him and the rest to be close as siblings so the vacuum of not having friends wasn’t felt much. He grew up loving Music.He started playing drums at age 7, Piano at age 12 and other instruments along the line. Mbryo came into Lagos in the late nineties where he would say he really learnt everything he knows today especially in Music & Production. With a Diploma in Mass Communication from Olabisi Onabanjo University he still has plans of going back to school.
