Black Magic: Biography

Rapper, singer, and composer Efemena Mukoro, also known as Black Magic (previously Ejay and Ejay Black Magic), is from Nigeria. While he was still a student at the University of Benin, he began his musical career. In 2013, he won the Headies Award for “Best Alternative Song” in addition to serving as the CEO of the Based on Belief record label.

Early Life and Education

Black Magic is a native of Delta State, which is located in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. He was born on April 21 and raised in Lagos State, Nigeria. Both his primary and secondary studies were completed in Lagos, at King’s College. Later, he traveled to Benin, where he attended the University of Benin and graduated with a degree in computer science.


With age, Blackmagic’s interest grew, and his love of music increased dramatically. He was also lucky to have easy access to cameras and recording equipment. While still a student, he gained notoriety on campus at the University of Benin (UNIBEN) for constantly showcasing his musical interests while filming his classmates and professors on various subjects. As time went on, he was better able to comprehend what his future held and what he might do to make it better. From that moment on, his love for music developed, and it is totally understandable that he was unable to put it on wait any longer.

Blackmagic dropped out of school to focus on music and started his career as Ejay. He joined Lynxxx’s Syndik8 label in 2010 as a soul and Afrobeat performer. He later released a series of singles and his debut album, Blackmagic 1.0, both in 2011. He became well-known thanks to the song “Confam,” which he and Sasha P co-wrote. But once the 2013 single “Repete” was published, he became well-known. “Repete,” according to the press, is one of the Nigerian songs that has received the best reviews. In Nigeria, he is considered as a pioneer of the alternative scene.
