Chiedu Oraka, the sound of northern working-class England, who's captivating energy makes the timid bystander feel a sense of belonging and the avid gig goer feels satisfied with taking a punt on the unknown. From Hip-Hop to Grime, and its acquaintance UK Garage. Hailing from Hull, the newly crowned City of Culture, where he is the pioneer of the alternative urban scene, Chiedu Oraka was inspired by his older sister's battered hand-me-down CD's, which included the likes of 2pac All Eyez on Me, Mase's Harlem World and the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill; it's safe to say Chiedu's musical beginnings were somewhat different to the other kids living down the street. These 90's icons are just some of the artists that have given him the ingredients to express himself in so many walks of life. Chiedu is not an artist that is defined by a BPM or a genre of music; he is the musician that thrives on giving the listeners a different emotion and experience every time they hear him. Tirelessly working at his craft, Chiedu has been lucky enough to support some of the UK's leading Hip-Hop and Grime MCs such as Akala, Wretch 32, Lunar C, Mikill Pane, Mo Stack, Stormzy, KRS One, Jaykae and Paigey Cakey.
