My father died in 2009.My mother is alive.she is the one taking care of me and my brother Igba kelvin Lubem aka lyrikalson.
At my tender age, I grew up in the village, I started at LGEA primary school mase ..later, I proceeded to Victoria nur/primary school kanshio Makurdi now mother Victoria nur/primary/secondary school …I graduated in 2011 and proceeded to Trinity model Academy and did my junior secondary school there, I left there due to financial issue because the school fees was high . I proceeded to Alpha landmark international Academy for my senior secondary school and left in SS3 to write my final year SSCE exams.
I am now in the federal university of agriculture makurdi Benue state doing my first degree.
The music thing started in 2013 but I did not take it serious until 2015 I met my friend Akaiv Gideon Aondonenge aka Freezycole at a construction site .From there we became friends and we decided to form a group #GT’s which we got from our first lettér of our English names.We wrote a couple of songs together.But we officially voiced in 2016 December.We recorded #elevate and #triple C’s we featured EmmyRexy but it was only triple C that we decided to put promote on the internet.
In 2018 I decided to go solo on my single #my_Girl and more songs are still underground which am working on like #bad_friends #pull etc
Patoranking is the main person that really influenced me when he dropped girlie oh ,alubarika and early mo mo.That made me to dream to be like him that’s why I choose the stage name Timoranking.
Stoneboy also influence me,timaya,kcee,harrysong ,jaywon and many artist and in my home state here Icebeats,mcdow,Tha neutral, slimbirdie ,EMMYTEE,fleetman,ems,savito,sidas ,ELTEE,jaymella and lots more too many to mention.To be honest, the whole Benue entertainment acts have influenced me.
Am really blessed to be from Benue state a place full with entertainment and everyone is good.
Am working on many tracks to be released very soon.
I am facing a lot of challenges in combining music and school.It is not easy and financial challenges have also been another major setback but I believe its with a matter of time before eveything would finally change.
