Lagos – He grew up listening to different genres of music and was greatly inspired to learn how music was made; today, he is regarded as one of the few producers in Nigeria to bring in a distinct feel to music. Tha Suspect is a music enthusiast, who does not just make good beats but also sings and raps.

 His first major feature was on the remix of IllBliss’ “You Go Wound”, where he stunned many with his attitude and word play in Pidgin English. Shortly after that he released the first single, Ja Won Si, on which he featured LKT and Dr. Frabs. Tha Suspect represents the truth and would stop at almost nothing to reflect this in his music; his new singles, I No Send You and “I Go Make Am” testify to this.

He is the brain behind Kel’s hit single, “Waa Wa Alright” and will be producing all the songs on her debut album; in recent times, Tha Suspect has also worked with several artist such as Durella {mastered his ‘King of the Zanga’ album}, Alaye, Tito C-Mos, H-Man, just to mention a few. He calls his forthcoming debut album, PUBLIC NUISANCE, an experiment, because he explores many sides to music on this album.

Tha Suspect represents the city of Ikeja and the hustles associated with growing up on the streets of Ikeja; an experience that has been a very huge influence on his music and life as a whole.
